If you spend a lot of time online talking to like-minded enthusiasts, especially on sites like ours, it may seem like Blu-ray is everywhere and that the format is as mainstream as DVD by now. But how many people do you know in real life who have Blu-ray players and watch Blu-ray discs?
If you count my PS3 and laptop, I currently have five Blu-ray players in my house, as well as hundreds of discs. Yet I’m the only person in my family who has ever watched a movie on Blu-ray. Of people in my office, I’d guess maybe two or three have Blu-ray players. Among friends I have real-world interaction with, certainly less than ten are Blu-ray adopters. Is this a common experience for our readers?
For the purposes of this poll, the PS3 will only be counted as a Blu-ray player if the owner regularly uses it to watch Blu-ray movies.
