$10 Blu-rays. That said alone does sound mighty yummy doesn’t it? Unfortunately, I’m not here to announce a sale or a place to go to fill your $10 Blu desires. I am however going out on a limb and projecting that we will see more frequently $10 Blu-rays in the consumer marketplace in 2010. Already we are seeing $10 Blu’s with coupons or promo codes etc. and we are commonly seeing alot of Blu-ray sales sub $15 range. Online vendors such as Amazon and Tower have had plenty of $15 deals this past year and currently for that matter.
Recently, brick and mortar retailer giants such as Best Buy, Frys, Wal-Mart & Target have jumped on the bandwagon and followed suit with plenty of great retail sales on Blu-rays. So the question is asked … “When will many of the Blu-rays hit the $9.99/$10.00 range?” Before anyone leaves the comment, “Hey retard, their are $10 Blu’s!” let me first acknowledge this with. “I KNOW!”
For those not yet enlightened, believe it or not their are $10 Blu-rays. However, these are the same old titles that have been $10 for quite some time and for many a reasons. Movies like “Saw” “Young Guns” “The Descent” “Rambo: First Blood” and a bit more (15+?) have been $10 for quite the while. They can most commonly be had at your local Wal-Mart. Some of these have sub-par picture quality and some have atrocious picture quality while others are decent. “Crank” is probably one of the $10 titles that has the best PQ/AQ rating. Alot of these titles are also some of the first titles ever to grace blu-ray, hence why they suffer a lack there of in the PQ/AQ department many Blu consumers have come to love.
However, what I’m talking about or stressing in this case is the day that we commonly have a plethora of $10 titles to choose from. Blu-ray adoption rate is steadily climbing month in and month out so its only a matter of time. But how much time? I’m going out on the limb, far out on the limb, teetering on the edge of the limb collapsing and leading to my downfall (:-p) and predicting 2010. 2nd/3rd or 4th quarter. 50 to 100+ titles $10.00
So c’mon Blu-ray, Let’s make it happen and edge even closer to the day we have *gasp* $5 bargin bin!
