Default Re: Blu-ray superseded by digital downloads, says Microsoft executive

I think that owning a physical copy of movies will still be around for years to come. I agree that services like VUDU do a pretty good job streaming Almost Blu-ray quality but if I purchase a movie for my collection I want to know that I w;ll still be able to play it 10 years from now. I have had too many Hard drives crash over the years to feel safe with them holding any collection of beloved movies. with the size of high def movie files the redundant back-up would require to much expense.

Plus there is still something comforting about being able to own a hard copy of your favorite movies. I may just be old fashioned in this respect, even though I am a very "high tech IT person"
