Blu-ray gloom and doom

All this talk about the PS3 and you forgot to mention 1 thing: Blu-ray is doomed. You payed extra money for a format that will be obsolete in the very near future. Here are 2 reasons why:

1. Sony. Formats they back don't usually do well: see Betamax, Minidisc, UMD, etc.
2. pr0n. The adult film industry has sided with HD-DVD, and they basically decide who wins format wars. Notice that formats they have backed in the past (VHS and DVD) have greatly succeeded, while others (Betamax) have failed. No (.)(.)=doom.

I could be wrong, but look at those bullet points. Those are two very large mountains to climb. I certainly wish Blu-ray luck. It's probably going to need it.
