Ok article. Even through all the praise they sill threw out the obvious:

"It's also clear that the players are maturing: 11 of the new players have the BD-Live feature, which connects them to the Internet for interactive extras like games, downloadable trailers and chats with film makers. Only last year did the first BD-Live Blu-ray players appear, while the very first HD-DVD players that were launched in 2006 had comparable interactive capabilities. One HD-DVD disc even allowed online shopping for movie-related items."

Ouch!

I'm shocked that MSnbc would post a positive Blu-ray article from AP. Am I dreaming?

$750 million spent on Blu-ray discs versus $21.6 billion spent on DVDs is still a huge gap to overcome. For example: there are no BD titles I want until March, and that means the industry won't get anything from me until then. The releases just need to come faster and heavier!

You're under the impression that they care.


They don't.
