Found this over on AVSfroums front page. Seems BR and HD DVD might have even harder times ahead.


Do High-Def Owners Care About HDTV?

Now this is just odd.

In the past two years, the number of consumers who look forward to watching high-definition TV on their HD sets has dropped from 63 percent to 47 percent, and the number of consumers purchasing HD sets for high-def content has almost halved to around 25 percent, according to the NY Times (via Gizmodo).


Is that for real?
While we've discussed the future of HD in length, the fact that plasmas and LCDs have topped holiday shopping lists (except for kids) sure seemed to indicate that high-def is becoming more mainstream.

Maybe not.
One reason for this could be gaming -- with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 supporting HD resolutions, and high-def downloads available for the 360, those numbers could easily be influenced by gamers.

I think that this figure naturally drops over time... You aren't going to buy two TV's in two years... so what do you expect.
