Samsung: Blu-Ray has five years left

Despite its belief that the next few years will bring massive profit to those who’ve invested in Sony’s high-def disc format Blu-Ray, Korean electronics firm Samsung has stated that it thinks Blu-Ray will be dead by 2013.

Speaking to Pocket-Lint, Samsung UK’s director of consumer electronics Andy Griffiths stated: I think it Blu-Ray has five years left – I certainly wouldn’t give it 10. Still, it’s going to be huge. We are heavily back-ordered at the moment.”

Griffiths added that 2008 will, in his opinion, be the year of Blu-Ray.
