Blu-Ray kills PS3

Microsoft claims


Microsoft claims that the cost of Blu-ray is killing off Sony's PS3. Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft's director of product management told Edge magazine that "Sony bet on the physical disk" for entertainment. As a result it is facing "associated costs" that might be holding the PlayStation 3 back.

He said that Redmond could offer a console starting at $199 is a benefit of not being burdened with that cost and being $100 cheaper is part of the reason why Redmond has nearly twice  Sony's installed base.

Microsoft offers HD movies and television shows through Xbox Live. However it is unlikley to be Blu-ray so much as the fact that Sony has been more expensive than any others in the market place. Once Sony announced the PS3 Slim and its $299 price tag in August, sales started taking off. Many now think Sony, not Microsoft or Nintendo will win the console wars.
