So why the reluctance? Cost. And minimal benefit. Sure, it looks better, but it isn't like everyone has a HDTV. DVD din't take off for the video quality, it took off because of the size and not having to rewind d bonus features. Really, about the only thing Blu-Ray offers is a higher quality. A $300 player and more expensive disc and the economy is in the shitter! Is anyone at all surprised?

It would be the same thing if HD-DVD won. Make the players $100. No more then double an el-cheapo DVD player then maybe it has a chance.

But Blu-Ray is a stop gap as it is. It may be several years off until it is refined but digital downloads of movies will kill at the very least the rental business.
