Do You Care About Blu-ray?

It seems like every day, I hear about another movie getting re-released in Blu-ray. The "next-generation," high-definition DVD format promises sharper pictures and brighter colors, and it seems to be really taking off this holiday season. I, though, still don't have a player that can handle Blu-ray discs, so it's all sort of lost on me. What about you?

They are a lot of money so we only buy them for each other on holidays and just movies worth having on blu-ray. The picture is amazing so it's worth it but not worth having every movie on.

nope! I could care less about blu-ray... maybe once I get my dream living space with my dream humungo television and theater system then I will add a blu-ray to the mix but not a minute until

I own a LOT of DVDs and the Blue-Rays are way too expensive. I would be down with getting a Blue-Ray to watch my DVDs on though since it supposedly makes them look better...

Netflix now has Blu-Ray! I only buy my favourites :-)

It is way too expensive for us to make the switch. We are happy with our regular DVDs. At least they are better quality than VHS. -shrug-

We usually get blu-ray for high action and Disney Pixar movies only. My husband bought us an AWESOME 60 inch plasma HDTV and blu-ray movies looks so fantastic, you can really see the difference. :)

We have a PS3 and that practically obligates you to buy Bluray. I do recognize the significant increase in quality over regular DVDs, but to be honest, I'm just as happy with DVD quality.

I find Blu-Ray discs really awesome and I love them. I tend to buy the films with high action because it just looks so much better.

I love it! I only buy the movies that I think would make a huge difference in blu-ray, i.e. Nightmare Before Christmas, Casino Royale, etc. but for movies like 27 dresses, I just buy the regular format since it doesn't make a difference.

Blu-Ray discs are too expensive right now, so I'll just stick with regular DVDs. I'm sure we will get a PS3 eventually though and then we will buy Blu-Ray DVDs.

I have 2 blu-ray players- the PS3 and one that came free with my HDTV... but I usually buy normal dvds anyway. They still get a quality boost from the bluray player. But bluray discs are just too much money, although if I see some on sale I might grab them.

My dad bought one and loves it. The colors and picture are beautiful... but I think I am going to just get a ps3 cause it does Blu-Ray but you can also play games... Win win baby!

I can barely afford to buy regular DVDs let alone super expensive Blu-Rays and the player to go with it.

Nope! Too expensive for one and we download all of our movies. The only time we buy one is if it's a favourite and we want to actually own it.

Don't have one and won't be buying one. I'm with Baluk...they will be a thing of the past soon as everyone will be downloading movies (we already do via our Xbox and Netflix). Also, I think it is such a bunch of BS that BluRay won out over HD DVD players. Stupid Sony.

I'd eventually be interested in them, however I'd have to first upgrade my TV and then my player.

unless they bring the prices way down I'll stick with regular for now. Really thought within a few years downloaded will probably be the way to go. Not just to play on the computer but on your TV as well. Or even putting movies on memory card type things. That seems like a better idea than discs that can get scratched and ruined so easily. Technology is constantly changing so while yes right now downloading movies might not have the resolution, I'm sure it will soon

I've heard RAVE reviews about Blu-Ray from different people but, in these harsh economic times, I'm still going to stick to DVD. You just can't ever keep up, though! ;)

Blu rays are NOT done, I have had a player for over a year now (in our PS3) and they are amazing. downloaded isnt going to be in the same High Res.

I don't really care about it, except I really want to watch the Earth series and it's only available on blu-ray.

apparently it's a very big deal. I know quite a few people getting bluray players and or discs for christmas. we have an up-converter, something my engineer husband found and it plays non-hd dvds in a higher format, which works for us. The new bluray movies are so expensive!
