"If more expensive and easier to scratch..."1.0 starson by scottwilkins
Pros: More capacity, but so what?
Cons: Too expensive now, too expensive later...
Summary: How can Blu-Ray win? Really?
Blu-Ray discs will be easier to scratch than HD-DVD. Will not be as compatible with older DVD discs (they say it will, but it won't). And will start out, and most likely continue, with a 100% higher price point than HD-DVD. Plus, Blu-Ray has more capacity, but that won't be used by 99.99% of any movies released.
So, why bother with Blu-Ray? Why would I risk my software and movie collection on a medium that is easier to destroy? Why would I pay twice as much for content I can get elsewhere for less?
Sorry, Blu-Ray makes no sense.
