Well, duh. Do they really need it spelled out for them. The blu-ray disks are too bloody expensive - and the picture quality isn't THAT much better to justify paying out two to three times the cost of a normal DVD. I'm pretty much where I was 10 or 15 years ago (I'm bad with guesstimating dates) where DVDs had just come out and where stupidly expensive compared to VHS tapes. Like before then CDs were stupidly expensive compared to vinyl and cassettes. Once the reailers can get over themselves and stop trying to fleece their customers - they might start shifting enough units to make a decent, consistent profit... but until then... oh boo-hoo boo-hoo my heart bleeds for them.
Blu-ray players could top the Christmas list, but the format has a long way to go | Technology | guardian.co.uk
