Yeah they have just been to expensive in players and media to warrant the upgrade. I also have not gone HD on the TV yet. My daughter watches cartoons on it more than anything. We are thinking about it at tax time though we will see.
It still makes sense to just buy a PS3 instead of a Blu-Ray player.
The other issue with Blu-Rays is that people would need to purchase an HDTV in order to utilize it. From an article a few days ago on HH, 50% of America now owns an HDTV. It's only a matter of time till Blu-Rays start creeping towards that ratio as well.
I've noticed a change in prices for the players recently. The movies in BluRay are selling for the same price as the same title DVD's at WalMart. They really want us to adopt this technology, and they're starting to make it more affordable too. But I wonder what will happen to BluRay movie prices once we're hooked on the technology? The quality of the movie is much higher, that's for sure.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
