Being a senior in college, money is not the smallest of issues when it comes to this writer’s life. Therefore, let’s just say, I’ve stayed a back from the rush to go Blu.
However, if this report from Blu-ray.com is to be believed, that is about to change.
The outlet is reporting that Dealnews is forecasting that Netflix-enabled Blu-ray players will be selling for $49 come this year’s Black Friday, and that older film releases will be available for $5, with newer titles hitting the $10 mark.
There is also speculation on the various forums that we’ll see another 50% Off Criterion sale from Barnes and Noble, and most likely again from Amazon.
Even more compelling, is that they report that these sales will be available during the ‘Black Friday season’ meaning that instead of just one single day, these sales will be available for a rather long period of time, roughly during mid to late-November.
TVs have apparently hit the floor when it comes to prices, but where those may not be budging much, I sure will be looking into upgrading come this November. These prices are just too good to pass up, and while I’m a little afraid to have to start a whole new collection of films on Blu-ray, at this relatively low price, I really can’t help but have to give in at this point. It’s just too good to pass up.
What do you think? What deals are you hoping for this holiday season?
