    It's true though Digital is versatile; I haven't touched a disc for about 2 years I'd say.

    Definitely sounds like a case of sour grapes.

    It's already been proven that most people prefer a physical copy of something they bought rather then a digital copy. Blu-Ray will make a huge impact.

    I highly doubt that there is no delay when streaming the quality of footage on anything other than uber fast fibre optic broadband or something really expensive with limited coverage like that. Blu-ray will NEVER have delay, regardless of speed of internet connection, so is FAR superior IMHO.

    In my opinion the reason you don't need Blu-Ray is to A) Keep costs down B) Keep Loading times down (the Blu-Ray drive in the PS3 needs help from HDD installs a lot fo the time) and C) Games aren't really requiring it as of yet. Only FFXIII really needed it for its vaguely compressed 1080p cutscenes.

    Yeah, ok. Let me know when I can DL a full 1080p movie faster than just going down to the nearest Red Box and getting it for $1.50 a day.

    I haven't used a disc since I got a high speed internet connection apart from xbox games that is.
    If blu ray is going to be bypassed then everyone needs an internet connection capable of downloading 1080p movies in a reasonable amount of time (under 6 hours for sure?) which I don't think everyone will have for the foreseeable future though. [​IMG]

    I have to agree when im using the blu ray discs I always think it feels a bit old fashioned [​IMG] already
