As someone said above, "price is king". At current prices Blu-ray will never be successful but who here honestly believes that BD players will never get to the sub-$100 level? It looks like HD-DVD is going downhill, Blu-Ray on the other hand is just about holding its own as an upstart technology and garnering more support than ever.

As long the price comes down quickly enough before digital downloads and the such become the major force in movies, then there won't be any reason why BD-Roms will not become the standard within five years or so...
Phil Harrison said (no I can't find the link) that he doesn't expect nor see a reason for BD players to drop below the $400 mark. The interview was linked on kotaku about a month ago.
