Blu-ray is in a death spiral.  12 months from now Blu-ray will be a videophile niche, not a mass market product.

With only a 4% share of US movie disc sales and HD download capability arriving, the Blu-ray disc Association (BDA) is still smoking dope.  Even $150 Blu-ray players won’t save it.

16 months ago I called the HD war for Blu-ray.  My bad.  Who dreamed they could both lose?

In Blu-ray is dead – heckuva job, Sony!.  It’s now a year later… where are we?  Is there any HD DVD format left?
