mainly to watch Blu-Ray movies. I have a few games on it that I play ever so often (I am over 50). But I think Blu-Ray may die due to one reason - it's not backward compatible with DVD. When I get a Blu-Ray disk off of Netflix, I can only watch it in one room. I can't take it on a trip. My daughter can't watch it in her room. When I buy a Blu-Ray disk, I can't rip it to my media server.
I know the format will become more pervasive and eventually be in these locations, but will it before the companies give up. Don't get me wrong, I love the A/V quality and the features (that's why I bought the PS3) , it's the convenience of DVD that I miss horribly. But, unfortunately, history tells us that convenience wins over quality in the marketplace (cell phones, MP3s, etc.). Blu-Ray will probably just be the audiophile's/videophile's choice and be reduced to that.
I know they have a BD/DVD hybrid format in the works, but I haven't seen any popular movies in that format yet.
The solution (today): include a DVD disk of the movie along with with the Blu-Ray disk when I purchase it (not a digital download - the quality is too poor). This would justify the price of the Blu-Ray disk and solve my problem.
Later on make BD/DVD hybrids or cheaper Blu-Ray players/disk drives and the pervasive-ness will follow.
