US $300 Blu-Ray Drive

Well,
it’s only in China
for now, but still: US $300 for a Blu-Ray drive is pretty good.

Combine this with people figuring out how to install drivers allowing the $300 Xbox HD-DVD player to work on their Windows machines, and it gets even more interesting..

I’m thinking that by the holiday shopping season at the end of 2007, we’ll be seeing a lot more players (and consequently movies) being bought.
I suspect my prediction about rental movies switching to HD will be abeout a year later than I thought. Oh well.

    Maybe more like 2 years? Blu-ray is certainly coming on strong here in late 2009. It's taking over from DVD in a big way at Future Shop and HMV.
