Did you even read the post you agreed with?

I guess you agree with this guy too?

Blu-Ray is here to stay, To say that DVD sales are still largely in favor of DVD is obvious but is not the same as saying Blu-Ray is dead!
New companies are introducing players & the prices are dropping.
As sales of HDTV's increase so will Blu-Ray sales.
Blu-Ray may never completely overtake DVD sales but it's a long way from the niche products like laser discs or vinyl records!!

I agree. In fact, in the short time since the demise of HD-DVD, Blu-ray has rapidly gained market share much faster than most people predicted, and that despite a global recession. The only question now remaining is if, and how long before, both DVD and BDs are replaced by online downloads. Personally, I believe both disc formats will remain strong for many years to come, with BD continuing to gain market share. Still, it is kind of ironic that so many newer BD players have download/streaming capabilities built in; I guess the BD player manufacturers see the writing on the wall.
