Blu-Ray Prices Not Going Anywhere (or Down)

PC World is reporting that Blu-Ray discs will not drop in price anytime soon.  The problem?  Not enough market share for high definition discs despite the sales of high-definition televisions.  So, let's work this one through.  Blu-Ray players are still in the $300 plus range when upconverting players sell at Wal-Mart for around $40.  Discs are $25 and above.  Standard DVDs cost under $20 generally, and a thriving cut-out market exists with discs at $5 or less.  Legally Blonde was in the Wal-Mart bins yesterday at $5.  Somehow I'm getting the impression that most people don't care enough about high definition DVDs at these costs what with the economy the way it is.  I agree that standard definition discs will be around for some time to come.  [MG]
