The Population Doesn’t Want Blu-Ray


The general consensus, among experts, analysts and other blowhards has long been that when Blu-ray players legitimately hit $199, the format would definitely go mainstream. Well, $200 Blu-ray players are all over the place for Christmas, even Sony’s BDP-S350, with its unshakeable $299 MSRP. But according to ABI Research, only 8% of holiday buyers were even considering upgrading to Blu-ray even though about half of American homes have gone HD and it’s totally uncontested by HD DVD this year. What about you guys?
