@ferd I’m sorry but what you say makes no sense. Or rather that that Murphy guy laws are way overrated. Don’t you know there’s competition and all that?
To start with, nothing is being advertised at below $20. The article simply says that retailers are now in a position to be able to offer those products at below the $20 mark.
With retailers having to pay a lot less than they pay now, it’s obvious that they will be in a much better position to dramatically lower their prices. Of course some will try to sell for $20 (or more) but others will not. Take Amazon, for example. Do you seriously think they will put their prices at the top range?
Anyway and as always, let’s see what happens. I foresee that, by year’s end, the anti Blu-Ray mob will have dropped this “Blu-Ray is too expensive” thing and will move to something else. Probably the “gas is too expensive, nobody will buy Blu-Ray” one.
