Blue Skinned and Blue Ray Problems

Apparently, the blue-skinned characters of Avatar aren’t fairing well on Blu-ray discs. In fact, a strange glitch on some consumer’s Avatar discs are preventing the movie from playing, causing quite a consumer upset.

“”When 3 out of 3 players in my house (Denon, Samsung and PC) won’t play it, then 20th Century Fox should be slapped with losses on this one,” said one irritated customer. “

Simply put, I agree. 20th Century Fox should, as a show of good favor, reimburse the afflicted consumers, because that is one BIG glitch. From a legal standpoint, the product is not operating as advertised, so purchasing contracts are invalid, which could spell troubles even for the retailers.

    This is a growing problem. A friend of mine just bought this movie on Blu-Ray from Wal-Mart. To my surprise it also came with a regular widescreen DVD, which is something I suppose is becoming a new trend as regular DVDs seem to start becoming old technology. The problem though was that the regular DVD would not play on three different Playstation 2’s I have here in the dorm. We eventually got it to play on my laptop, which obviously does not offer as large of a screen as a TV does, but the laptop screen is HD so it worked out alright. I suppose the issue is that the technology for Avatar is too advanced for the PS2, and maybe that there is too much information on the disc itself, which wouldn’t surprise me considering the types of footage used to shoot the movie. Seems like we’ll all have to upgrade to Blu-ray players soon.
