I'm not sure how many members here have a Blu-ray player (or perhaps a friend who has one), but I thought you would all like to know that Unbreakable is coming to Blu-ray on April 1st of 2008.  Needless to say, I'm really excited! ;D

If anyone has any questions about Blu-ray in general, feel free to ask.

Great news! Thanks for sharing.


- It's alright to be afraid, David. Because this part won't be anything like a comic book. Real life doesn't fit into little boxes that were drawn for it. -

I don't have a Blue-Ray, but I think that it is great that Unbreakable is coming to Blue-Ray, more publicity for Shyamalan.

I need to get a blu-ray player. I saw Batman Begins and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on blu-ray disc and they looked out of this world.

The problem is that there are not enough films on Blue-Ray to make it worth it, at least not for me.

Well, eventually there will be. It took sometime for DVD to get all of the titles it did.

I think by the time all of the M. Night Shyamalan movies make it to Blu-ray I'll be ready  ;)
Hopefully that won't be too long from now.

That's a good point.  Right now though I do not plan on buying a Blue-Ray.

If HD-DVD gets kicked off the market, things will be looking up for blu-ray, and hopefully the prices will be falling down.

Blue Ray rocks!  If you have a PS3, or even like playstation 3, you already have one and its the same exact thing as buying a regular blue ray player!  Yippie!  Two for the price of one!

Yeah, that is a real plus to buying a PS3. Especially in the earlier days when the prices for a stand alone Blu-ray player were about the same price as a PS3.

I didn't know that.  Are you sure.

The Playstation 3 features a slot-loading 2x speed Blu-ray Disc drive for games, Blu-ray movies, DVDs, CDs, and other optical media.

Sure does!  I have one!  Its just that I now need to get a good television to play them on.

Allright, that's really neat, I think whoever did that was really thinking.

At first the Blu-ray player in the PS3 was crippling it's sales. Sony was forcing their technology on the consumer which raised the products price. When the PS3 first launched it was $600, while it's competitors where as much as $350 cheaper! I think this all had a small role in the success of the Wii and XBox360.

PS3 sales are slowly gaining due to price drops, and better games being released. This all helps Blu-ray in the format war.

Yea, that's true, good point about the price difference.

News from this weekend suggests another possible price reduction coming soon:

A smaller, and less expensive Blu-ray player has been developed by Sony and Nichia and are expecting the new laser unit, which is 3mm thick to come equipped in Sony?s laptops sometime this year. While this is good news for those looking for a new laptop at a lower cost due to the smaller Blu-ray player, gamers who have yet to purchase a PS3 may be able to get in on this as well.
