    They will eat the cost like Microsoft is doing right now. Its actually a small price to pay considering the huge profits they will make within the next few years. Ive owned 4 Playstations 2s and 2 PSXs so they make up the losts fast.

    Or they make more losses. At least on you. If they lose money with the console but make mad cash with the games and you own 6 consoles, and only a few games, then they lost money on you.

    On topic, what is the point of rereleasing 12+ year old movies on blue ray? Those movies weren't high def when they were made, so the quality wouldn't be very different and blu-ray players can play DVDs fine. I agree that 40$ is way too much to charge for a movie. Granted the target market is HDTV owners with way too much money to spend, but I can't imagine the average person paying those prices for more than 1-2 movies just to show off their system.

    In other news, HD-DVD is slated to be released iat the end of March. Hopefully that format will die quickly as its inferior in every way besides licensing.

    Film doesn't have a resolution. It's only when it is digitally transferred do we truely see the difference at home. While new movies are being shot digitally at 1080p (making them flawless from the start), old movies can still look A LOT better by being digitally remastered into 1080p...

    Sony to Ship Blank Blu-ray Discs This Month for $30

    That's according to the Brit Tech Site [Register or Login to view links]. Sony's blank-disc division will this month begin shipping rewriteable Blu-ray Discs in Europe. Recordable discs will appear in April, the company said. However, dual-layer versions will not surface until later in the year, it added.

    The products due in March and April each provide 25GB of storage capacity and run at 2x speeds - a transfer rate of 72Mbps, Sony said. The two media are sprayed with a scratch-resistant, anti-static coating - handy, given how thin the data layer is on a BD. Sony said its own tests forecast a lifespan of 30 years for both types of disc.

    Sony said the BD-R discs will cost less than 25 (17/$30) and the BD-RE under 30 (21/$36), though these are prices for the German market - the company warned prices in other European states may be different.
