The first Blu-ray player may have arrived in 2006, but 2008 will go down in the consumer electronics annals (is there such a thing, hidden away in a drawer at the CEA?) as the year of Blu-ray. If I were the resident annals-writer, the post would read something like this: In 2008, Blu-ray defeated HD DVD and became THE high-definition disc format. In 2008, we finally saw Profile 2.0 players that exploit Blu-ray’s full potential. In 2008, more manufacturers joined the fray, giving consumers a wider array of product options at a variety of price points.
