Thread: Are you going to get a Blu-ray player?

  1. Default Are you going to get a Blu-ray player?

    I was reading this morning in Gizmodo how blu-ray players have become so cheap and that tons of people were buying them this season. I had totally thought that this was just another media that was going to become obsolete (Beta, HDDVD, etc...)

    Now it looks like I was wrong. What do you think?

    I think the first thing I will buy is a burner.

    I have used a PS3 as my blue ray player for some time now. As it has its own hard drive there is not much point my buying a burner as I just copy my HD movie onto the HD and play. I think hard drives will be the defacto storage medium for the next few years. I am not sure home blue ray production is really going to take off. I am not sure that Sony want it to as it would probably just lead to the copying of blue ray rental movies ala DVD all over again.
