I've been spending a bit of time looking around the internet at various topics about blu-ray. The whole subject seems to be a bit of an epic flame war so i thought why not bring a little conversation to bit-tech about this illustrious tangible format. So as i recall late last year the masterminds behind HDDVD threw in the towel and blu-ray was crowned champion of HD optical technology. With the ps3 up until recently being the cheapest way to get the blu-ray format into your home and onto your HDTV, it seemed an expensive yet attractive investment. Though much speculation exists about wether or not were just looking at another minidisc experience. 2009 is going to be a year of investment, your investing in things you buy to last you longer. I recently bought a 32" HDTV from Samsung and i spent a bit more to get a series 5 1080p model because i am investing in this tv lasting me a long time. With skepticism lurking underneath blu-ray like the wispers in the street as a known prostitute walks by it's hard to see wether or not this format is going to superseed DVD, but that's the question i'm putting forward to you all: With HD streaming becoming more common do you see blu-ray as a format that will be with us as long as DVD has? Or do you see it as just another beta-max in the sky soon to be knocked of its little sony-made podium? Lets discuss people! Condiment.
