Blu-Ray's sitting on very thin ice at the moment. While it has won the war, it's battle costs were huge, giving it an unfair runout. At this point one of two things will happen, either Blu-ray players and discs become cheap enough that everyone buys one (along with a HD-TV), which will send regular old DVD's the way of the vhs tape, or Blu-ray won't be able to keep it's head above water with manufacturing costs and die an slow death leaving us with DVD until we get something better.

The latter version isn't all that likely, but there's still a chance it'll happen if Blu-ray doesn't make some drastic changes to it's pricing sooner than what's estimated.
