    The two things with potential to kill it:

    1. Java enhanced movies that disney will likely make. Making all bluray Java compatible right from the start is a HUGE thing... It may mean more for the average viewer than the Higher def image does

    2. When they start releasing standard def content on them... Older TV shows that don't have HD signals, but don't use film are perfect candidates... Can you say a season a disc with no downgrade? I know you can!

    What i have noticed in the last 2 months is that Bluray disk sections in my local best buy is the bluray shelfs are about 40% empty and the HD-DVD are jammed full.

    At the best buy near me, the hd-dvd and blu-ray discs are on the same wall. Each shelf is labeled blu-ray or hd-dvd. Over the past month, the blu-ray discs have been slowly invading the hd-dvd section. Now, they've managed to push the hd-dvds entirely out of one shelf. The only reason I know this is because the best buy employees are too lazy to change the signs, so the shelf still reads hd-dvd but is now full of blu-ray movies.

    This is great news.

    I mean how can you not win. You have 90% of all the movie companies in your corner, the highest capacity and highest quality.

    Now you just need the porn industry to pick blu-ray. Once this happen's i'll give hd-DVD 6 months to survive!

    The role of the porn industry in this war is massively overrated, IMO. The situation today is completely different than it was when VHS, Video2000 and Betamax were fighting for supremacy. Cauze back then, people didn't have ANYTHING yet at home to play movies in the privacy of their homes, so they were eager to get something. And as far as I know, one major reason for VHS to win was the licensing conditions from JVC (or whatever company was pushing VHS) which made many other companies build VHS players instead of Betamax or V2000.

    But today there's the Internet, which has clearly taken the role of a prime distribution channel for porn, because you just can't get any more anyonymous than that. Even Sony execs have admitted that the future of movie distribution in general will probably be the net.

    And then, the whole HD tech is not necessarily advantageous for porn movies, because now you can see every little pickle and wrinkle on the skin in perfect detail... how great is that...

    So, I don't think the porn business will be a decisive factor anymore. The movie studio support will matter much more. And there, Bluray already is the winner.
