Blu-ray Production Costs

  • But in at least one early test, according to a top manufacturing executive who asked to remain anonymous, a manufacturing line for HD DVD discs produced nearly twice as many usable discs as a similar line pumping out the Blu-ray format, over the same period of time. That translates into higher costs for Blu-ray producers. Moreover, component costs for Blu-ray can be nearly double HD DVD costs, because elements are still hard to find, the executive said.

All this tells me one thing, DVD players will need to be replaced with Blu-Ray players which will cost a lot more. More over the price of HD DVD should come down when compared to Blu-Ray. We still don't know how Blu-Ray will do when launched with PS3.
