China enters Blu-ray market
 
Now that China is entering the Blu-ray market, prices will fall, and competition will increase.

http://www.chinatechnews.com/2008/05...-ray-products/:

Eleven Chinese disc manufacturers, including TCL, Malata and Desay, have been authorized by Blu-ray Disc Association to produce Blu-Ray discs, CDs, and disc players next year. According to president of Blu-ray Disc Association, each of the manufacturers have now turned to BD development since Toshiba's withdrawal from the HD DVD camp in February this year and BDA's member number has increased to 187 while that of International DVD Forum has decreased to 163 from 240. It is estimated that the demand for consumer electronics and computers adopted with BD technology will reach 5.3 million this year and top 11 million by 2009.

Yes that means prices of Blu Ray players are going to come down to $100 and disc under $20 then the market will turn from DVD to Blu Ray

I doubt it. The cheapest 2.0 player is going to be what $500?

Say what you will but HD-DVD being gone has HURT consumers. There isn't a huge wave of more movies being released on BD, and prices are quite honestly outragious. If HD-DVD was still around, BD would still just lack 2 studios, and their prices would be a lot more competitive.

The Chinese manufacturers have no plans of low priced players to my knowledge. I've been hearing $300 or so for them. Which is no where near where they would be if HD-DVD was around.

To all the people that thought 2 formats was bad, how much better are we now? It sure doesn't look that good.

Back spreading gloom & doom again huh? :rolleyes:
I thought you got mad & went away.
Your previous "knowledge" about things proves you are just guessing, it was you that said the studios didn't care about the greater software sales of the Blu-ray movies they only cared about the number of standalone players & that the PS3 wouldn't effect the war only stand alones.

I'm guessing that with 11 Chinese manufactures building Blu-Ray players that we will have $100-$200 players by Christmas.
With the injection of huge numbers of new buyers the prices of media will hopefully drop as well.
