What the f**k yo? I dont even own a blu ray player yet and now they talking bout Violet-ray?? i definetly agree with the people above me that said ps4 gonna be $999.99 plus tax and how the Blu Ray format still aint really break ground. That s**t is like the laser disk, that s**t aint last very long either. Im good with dvd 1080p upconvert, s**t aint breakin my pockets.

I already have my home theater set up that way..

1) Download blu-ray rips
2) Buy a low-profile PC with an Nvidia chipset that can do 1080p without a graphics card
3) build a storage server with TBs of hard drive space
4) stream blu-rays via ethernet using XBMC as a front-end

I've got hundreds of blu-rays that are literally at my fingertips and load within 3 seconds each.

Never going to buy a movie again.
This is the disconnect from reality we tech nerds tend to always fall pray to. We want everything only download-able or stream-able from the cloud because we have lightening fast internet connections, computers with terabyte drives and high end wireless home theater set ups. But some where along the line we lose touch with the fact that people like us prolly make up less than 5% of the population. We pay top tier prices for our quick internet speeds, most regular people have the cheapest, slowest internet connection their isp offers. They dont have MAS set ups. Where people like us are at now with our setups, mainstream America is 10-15 years behind that. Hell I know people who just are buying their first hd tv's. I know people that still use f**kin dial up to connect to the net. Yeah having everything only download-able and streaming is an awesome idea for us, but for a vast majority of people, its far from a practical reality and with the economy as f**ked as it is right now, a good majority of our country may never be able to afford that kinda setup.

Lets be real, do you honestly see Blu-ray as a serious long-term option when movies now are TENS Of terabytes each? When you STILL have to change discs to see different seasons or watch special features on some discs?
Which raw blu-ray rip is "tens of terabytes"?

Try like 40gb's raw, 7-8gb for 1080p compressed.

thanks cause that cat has no idea of what he is talking about...........

but yeah anyways... "Violet-Ray" sounds good and dandy BUT keep this in mind, a majority of people out there are not even up on Blu-Ray like that for various reasons either cause of the price or just do not have the tech knowledge as far as streaming mkv's or any other video formats for that matter basically not "in the know". i learned very fast that a lot of media consumers like their s**t fast food style (ala DVD) with out all the hassles or constant jumps when it comes to video formats.... DVD disc still move a s**t load of units and they are super cheap (fitting for the current state of our economy) Blu-Rays are nice no question but like i said a lot of people have not even begun playing catch up to that s**t yet. not to mention most standard dvd players nowadays got that "up convert" mode and it may not be true 1080p but hey it is good enough for their pockets....

I still have to explain what blu ray is to people in 2010. Even then people still wont buy it because of the price. I got my mom a bluray player for mothers day and she never watched a bluray on it, but she loves netflix on it. Sony might want to milk blu-ray and let it fully catch on until they release this so PS5 sounds right.

People act like if they come out with a violet ray or w/e that there wouldn't still be blue rays out there to buy. They still make DVDs, they're just much much cheaper now. This is how it goes with all new technologies, they phase it out by coming out with something "better" and that last generation of technology because much more available and cheaper.

I've had a ps3 for like 3 years now and just last week was the first time I even purchased a bluray without renting it and that's cuz they're cheap if you know where to buy them.
