With Blu-Rayís victory over HD-DVD, PS3ís success will snowball past 360

If you think that Blu-Rayís whomping victory over HD-DVD doesnít have dire implications for the battle between the PS3 and the 360, youíd better think again.

Though the PS3 has been behind the 360 in the U.S. for quite some time, that is all about to change drastically in Sonyís favor.

Expect to see a huge shift in the video game industry following the power shift in the video media realm; hereís what you can expect:

1. Expect developers who are looking to release exclusive titles to begin shifting to the PS3ís format; Sony will more than make it worth their whiles, and with HD-DVD dead, the PS3 will be a standard commodity in more homes than the 360 or the Wii in this high-definition generation.

With those developers shifting to PS3 soon, Sony will hold more wildcard developers going into the next console generation; Microsoft will have to work even harder to secure strong exclusive titles. Just as cross-platform hot titles like Call of Duty 4 are pulling users to the Blu-Ray equipped appeal of the PS3, more and more users will switch because developers are going to cater to Sonyís whims.

2. Obviously, expect more movies to Blu-Ray, and therefore more PS3 sales. Iíve believe all along that if Blu-Ray pulled out a victory, then PS3 would see a huge increase in sales.

3. That follows into my next point, which is that 360ís are going to be hitting the GameStops as trade-ins; if youíre dying for a 360, wait a bit. Prices will have to drop if Microsoft wants to be competitive; on top of that, quality will have to improve in 360 consoles. Halo 3 isnít enough to justify buying a poor quality gaming machine anymore.

4. Just like Vista, due to poor 360 quality, expect Microsoft to start directing the publicís attention at its next console; thereís very little chance they can save the 360ís image, and Blu-Ray equipped PS3ís are just too much competition.

What NOT to expect:

1. Donít expect Blu-Ray disc prices to drop. No competitor means monopoly on the market; Unless the media giants are feeling benevolent (and when have they ever acted in such a way), youíre still going to spend a pretty penny on a Blu-Ray disc. All those discounts to encourage adoption will probably dissipate.

Finally, donít expect the controversy over console supremacy to end; just because the PS3 is going to take the cake doesnít mean Microsoft doesnít have tricks left up its sleeve (or a new console in the works, which is more likely).
