Has Blue Ray Failed?
I have just forked out and bought a Blue ray player (Panasonic). The picture is astounding, better than Sky HD.
However I wonder if the public have voted with their feet and decided DVD is good enough, especially with a good up scaling player.
The reason I say this is due to the lack of discs in shops. WH Smith have none on their shelves neither do the major Supermarkets. Specialist retailers such as HMV devote very little shelf space to Blue ray, so the only good sources are internet sites.
Is it that the retailers are not interested, or is it lack of public demand that so few discs are on sale. This would not be the first time a format has failed, remember DVD-Audio and SACD?
