Blu-ray price hike.


According to an article at the SMH, the price of Blu-ray players has gone up 5% since the announcement that Blu-ray won the format wars.

To be perfectly honest, I’m surprised it isn’t the discs themselves not only for royalties for other companies to make, but also for the movies they come out on (ie, hikes on two seperate fronts).

This hike in players isn’t surprising. No more competition from another format, so manufacturers can afford to charge more for the product now as they’re only competing against other manufacturers of the same format.
