I don't know what marketing legerdemain Blu-Ray does, their players are a heap more expensive than HD-DVD's are. "Logically," they should be losing this battle.

Buy a PS3, get a Blue ray player for free...and not just any player as Danrok is prone to remnd us! But an updating BlueRay player...

Makes it's own kind of sense as a family purchase for games and movies...and music center... ":O}
