You will have 2 different systems out there with MILLIONS of these that already play only dual layer dvds.. then you want to release a 360 that ONLY plays blue-ray discs...
A 360 with BR would still play everything else. It would still play DVD 9 etc.
Lets just face it. Blue Ray is just not ready and why put guess work into some new technology that a competitor owns?
I don't understand what you mean by that. Not ready for what? Of course Blu-Ray is ready. Are syou suggesting the technology doesn't work yet?
I am happy with DVD quality and downloadable content via live.
Many people are not. I don't want mere DVD quality when I can have Blu-Ray. As for downloading being the future. That is a long way off. File size for 1080P quality content, Poor BB connections and ISP download caps will see to that. I also like to collect the discs, booklets etc.
I think once the Blu-Ray players from competitors drop, the PS3 will not be as attractive
By the time that happens the PS3 will be established as a gaming machine as well as Hi Def movie machine. the fact it will do both and have a large catalogue of games and Movies will keep sales going. The fact it had no games at the beginning is not still the case and by the end of it's second year in Europe it will have a massive games catalogue.
