Meanwhile, the primary device that is driving Blu-Ray sales is the PS3, and for the first time since its inception, it started selling more than the antiquated Gameboy Advance in May (but lost to it again in Canada in June). I went out to Fry's, Best Buy and Microcenter earlier today. The Best Buy stock was again piled high (I actually think I saw one poor soul leaving with a PS3, however). The demo station featuring Motorstorm was totally ignored while I was there (a good 30 minutes). At Microcenter I didn't check for stock but the sole demo for the PS3 was again being utterly ignored (some sports game being featured). Finally, at Fry's (didn't check the stock), the demo unit playing Motorstorm was simply locked up and unresponsive (I hope everyone who passed by trying to play took note and that Fry's left it that way intentionally
). At all 3 of the above stores, the 360 demos had people engaged (Transformers, some basketball game and what I believe was Forza 2). If this is all that can be garnered from the schizophrenic flagship/most affordable Blu-Ray player on the market, Blu-Ray has a long uphill climb. I for one am glad Blu-Ray's not the only HD movie format in town even though that's not a popular view here.
