No, it was a failure and the standard format is still DVD, Blu-ray will never be standard considering the spiderweb of formats.

Sure ,it was very expensive back in 2006 and it was a very big risk since it did not become standard yet ( was still competing with HD- DVD's) and it was a big contributor to that 599$ price tag.

but looking at it from today , did it pay off?


(In Bane's voice) Of-course!

Since most "gamers" today care more about graphics than gameplay, I'd say it paid off. Blu-Ray holds so much data that they can easily make breath-taking visuals in games.

If PS3 couldn't play Blu-ray it couldn't play games


True, since the PS3 game was made out of blu-ray disc.
#29Dirk_McHardpeckPosted 1/25/2013 1:07:54 PM
Yup. Because the games are blu-rays and because it helped expedite the end to the HD DVD battle by putting blu-ray players it peoples homes who may not have bothered buying one otherwise.

In the long term it was a great investment. They don't really need another new disk medium for PS4 I feel. Plus, the HD film industry is all the more better for it.
