    I blame Blu-Ray for the recession.

    I would generally say that I'd rather have a hard copy, but that's only for those few movies that I really like and want to always have. I stream netflix for first time home viewing, and it's fantastic. Also for TV shows to be watched as whole seasons.

    I don't think DVD or Blue Ray will be completely eliminated for a long, long time, but they will be greatly hurt by the downloading/streaming options, which will most likely become the most prevalent option eventually.

    At least in countries that can handle it.

    In my business there has been almost zero demand for blu-ray. I was very aggressive in making the transition from VHS to DVD, but due to lack of demand I've let blu-ray pretty much slide. The high-end adult feature films that one would figure to be in demand initially are ridiculously expensive on the wholesale level. So at this poimt as a retailer I have zero motivation to change over my stock.

    What? High Def boobies would be awesome. Haha.

    I thought there was a bit of an issue with Porn and Blu-Ray initially? Sony didn't want it.

    Can't say I disagree on the HD DD's.

    Yes, initially all adult was on HDDVD. Sony came to their senses pretty quickly... they didn't want a repeat of the whole beta fiasco. Now the nastiest of stuff is available in blu-ray. :)

    For me, yes, and the titles are likely available for online purchase at the retail level also. I'm not sure if many retailers stock it, so I'm not sure how available it is to the walk in consumer. Likely in larger markets they do, but as I said, in my case there is virtually no demand for it.

    I suppose cost would be an issue when you aren't really there to marvel at the production values, CGI or acting.

    Yes, Gunny, I am only able to comment on the U.S. and similar markets. I have no clue what percentage of the world that is.

    There's no blue ray demand because some things don't need to be too clear. Some things also don't need to be on a 55" screen. Especially the lower budget films, with people who are far less attractive when you look at them very closely, and have scars, stretch marks, and bad tattoos.
