Hi, just thought i'd try to get some of your opinions on the current standings on the Blu Ray vs. DVD.
Firstly i'd just like to say that i've yet to buy into the whole Blu Ray thing and i'm still currently purchasing all of my movies on DVD, i just don't see the whole big deal about BR for quite afew reason including:
The price of movies is just so high
Theres the whole profile issues at the moment with BR
The quality jump from DVD to BR is not the same jump as it was from VHS to DVD
Being a collector of movies i love my current DVD collection owning almost 900 movies on DVD alone (not including TV shows, Stand Up etc....) over time i've managed to pick up exclusives with some really nice steelbook cases/slipcases/sleeves where as i just find the BR cases really do like cheap and tacky (i know i sound just a tad sad here but hey i love my movies and enjoy collecting them and its really nice to own nice good looking cases)
Have been searching the net to try and find how DVD and BR sales are doing currently, but can't seem to find a site with figures and a graph to actually show how the two compare (so much for being able to find anything you want on the internet with ease lol)
Anyways would love to hear what everyone thinks about BR and DVD and hear your views on BR and whether or not you'll be buying into it or whether you believe BR is going to turn out to be another LaserDisk.
