Blu-ray – The End is Already Nigh
With the sweet smell of victory still strong in its nostrils could the winning of the HD format war be short lived for Blu-Ray?
In an interview with Home Cinema Choice magazine a head-honcho at THX has said:
“Personally, I think it’s too late for Blu-ray. I think consumers will only become interested in replacing DVD when HD movies become available on flash memory. Do we really need another spinning format?”
“In the future I want to be able to carry four to five movies around with me in a wallet, or walk into a store and have someone copy me a movie to a USB device.”
This might not be as daft as it sounds as 20th Century Fox will be trialing movie vending machines later this year!
