[hardocp] Consumers Cold To Blu-Ray Players - Page 2

post #11 of 18
BluRay is a luxury. With people freaking out about a "recession", what do you expect? Gas prices on the rise, food costs going up.....who's gonna buy bluray if they don't have to?

You know I scrolled through all the posts, just to make sure I wouldn't say the exact same thing you just said. QFT man, I pay $4.00 a gallon for gas (MD) for my Turbo Audi. That alone eats away at me, splitting groceries with my girlfriend who is a part-time worker on campus, while I am attending school for computers. The recession is real, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, because of bush's/government "secrets" we now are in debt beyond belief and these common setups such as Blu-Ray and HDTV's are no longer feasible for most Americans anymore. Now if this was 2000-2002 and Blu-Ray just won the war, I bet my life everyone here would jump on a $400 price for amazing quality.

My 2 cents

Lol! The only thing keeping me from buying a Blu-Ray player for my computer is the lack of an HDCP monitor!
And good movies!
And the price!
...screw Blu-Ray!

Because most of the people who got HDTV uses RCA cable to connect stuff, they don't know how HDTV work

Like others have said, the economy sucks right now. Don't just look at blu-ray, I bet sales for most "luxury" things are down. And for the last time, DVD was just as expensive at this stage in it's development.

I have plenty of money rolling around. (Works that way when you don't have bills yet. ) But I still really don't plan on getting a Blu-Ray player. The movie quality is freaking amazing (I've watched a few.) But I don't want one still...
'bout time.

QFT. People would look at a 480i signal on a 42" TV and still say it looks amazing.

Screw Sony, full of baloney!
Thats all IMHO so the flamers can keep their mouth shut!
I mean, Sony doesn't represent the Blu-ray industry. Plus, not all of Sony's products are overpriced and bad. The PS3 is still one of the best available Blu-ray players, and the Sony R10 and SA5000 are some of the best headphones in their respective price ranges.
