    Keep in mind many of the additional staff needed for HD development are artists creating all the HD objects and textures and the like. The same # of games released on Wii as HD certainly requires more people for the HD versions; so, a company in the middle of a transition to a more Wii/handheld centric lineup would either need to hire more programmers to make more games with the same number of...

    9 Reasons Why Blu-Ray Will Succeed

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 January 2009

    Also, point 6 is simply wrong. The entire reason content providers want to move to blu-ray is because DVD got too cheap for them. Too many of DVD's sales are happening at the cheap 'budget' prices, and it's too hard to sell a movie at a higher price. Blu-Ray means they can prop up the prices somewhat.To the content providers, Blu-Ray disks being at the cost of DVDs means that they lose more...
