Ummm because your on a bizarro world where hd-dvd won???

Sorry dude, Blu-Ray is here & it's way past the niche/early adopter stage & downloads have a long way to go.

Edit,
I think I found a photo of Bob!

What? Are you on crack? Everyone I know has a blue ray player or a PS3! I bought a Sony BDP S350 for under $200 boxing week from my neighbourhood specialty store. And it makes my DVD's look better too! And my Pioneer Eilite Receiver can control this player and it turns on automatically through the HDMI cable....

The convenience is great and some BD discs have fantastic sound to boot.

Until internet downloading of 1080p/24 with the best audio codecs become feasible (meaning fairly quick downloads at a significantly cheaper price than Blu-Ray and most of the features on a Blu-Ray disc), the audiophiles and videophiles of the world will stick to Blu-Ray.

Obviously, there are many who don't care about getting the best performance and these people will stick with standard dvd's and lossy downloads.

Do I think Blu Ray will ever be as big as standqard DVD's? Of course not. Not even close. But it will be a good stop-gap format for 5 or more years until high quality internet downlaods are available at a reasonable price.

Some people will always want a disc for multiple viewings, but most will eventually go for a downloading service, such as Vudu. But for those that want to have the highest quality collection, the Blu Ray disc is currently the only way. At some time in the near future there will be Blu Ray quality and higher with at least the same features, but unless the current price of quality media arranging servers comes down significantly, along with the multiple TB hard drives needed to sustain a collection, the people that want the best will be buying/renting Blu Ray until the rest becomes feasible.
