Blu-ray Not Overtaking DVD in PCs for long time
This is an interesting report that I didn’t think about until reading, and I partially agree. Outside of the HTPC crowd there really is little demand for consumers to obtain a blu-ray drive in their systems. I think it’s tougher when you factor in that a DVD-Rom drive costs less than $30 these days, and blu-ray is still at least around $100, and possibly the cost of the software. It will eventually happen…I think it will help as storage drives get larger and people aren’t intimidated by the 40gb space a ripped blu-ray movie will take on their systems.
