HD DVD / Blu-ray Combo Players to be the Norm

According to a recent report from ABI Research, the HD DVD vs. Blu-Ray format war will be won not by either format, but by dual-format players, such as the recently released LG BH100 combo player. According to the Steve Wilson, ABI’s principal consumer electronics analyst: “We believe that universal players will come to dominate the high-definition DVD player market.”

HD DVD vs. Blu-Ray Format War

In addition to the LG player that hit shelves this week, Samsung and other vendors are expected to release combination HD DVD / Blu-Ray players in the coming months. Initially, such players are expected to remain costly, with prices around $1000 to $1200. However, fully integrated chipsets will bring prices down over time. That all said ABI doesn’t think that widespread adoption will take off until street prices drop to around $200 (which ABI predicts will happen by 2009). Guess it’s time to sell that PS3 for scrap value.
