    From what i understand there are 3 generations of Blue Ray players, and they are not software upgradeable. The old versions, 1.0, won't play some of the extras on the newer dvd's. I read somewhere about changes in encryption to dvd's that gave the early generations problems.

    I can live with my old HD-DVD player for a while until the Blue Ray folks work out all the bugs. I'm in no rush to buy into that mess. I assume newer players aren't bad but they still aren't as advanced as HD-DVD and they are still too pricey.

    $199 for a Panasonic Blue Ray and maybe we can start talking.

    Yes, it's amazing how many Sony technologies and products have failed in the marketplace. Toshiba took the hit on this one but they still make some fine products.

    My Denon progressive scan DVD player still looks and sounds great so it will be awhile before I go Blu-ray. If my eyes get any worse, everything will be lo-def anyway.

    Not really. Look at most successful individuals and/or companies and you will find most have had many setbacks on their road to success. It is an unavoidable part of research and development. Imagine how many setbacks Microsoft would have if they didn't own 90% of the marketplace. Say what you will about Sony, Apple etc. but at least they are leading in this regard rather than sitting back content to adapt other peoples' technologies. I have a great deal of respect for them in this regard.

    No wonder the format died...
    Sony and Samsung have 92% of the BD market.

    Can we expect it to die soon, too?

    The 92% market share will go down though. With Denon, Panasonic, Sharp and LG releasing players, i'm sure that market share will drop.

    And hopefully prices. I see that Sony is bringing out new network connected players later this spring.
