At the front end of this year, we made ten bold (and mostly not serious) predictions
for the format war in 2008. Comically enough, a few of 'em actually came true. Most notable was the fall of HD DVD
and the rise of Blu-ray, and while it has only been a matter of months since Blu became the lone high-def physical format, quite a lot has happened. Prices of players went higher
, then lower
, while digital downloads have emerged as a real threat to the format in the long-term. The question that's burning on our mind here at the tail end of '08 is this: did you go Blu-ray this year? If you didn't, what are you waiting for? Prices to fall? More movies to appear? Are you opting for a digital download service instead? Spill your tale in comments below.
