I own ONE DVD drive just in case, but I haven't used it since I played Dirt3 last summer. I have NEVER owned a Blu-ray and never used one personally (on the job I did HDHQV tests)

The optical drive is not dead. Not so long as people like me are refused access to high speed (and our neighbors can get it.)
