Actually, the Blue Ray VCR will sweep the market by storm. By next year the Blue ray Record player and record set will have made its debut.

Blue Ray has mostly replaced DVD now. I haven't see a normal DVD player in shops for months now. Always $700(price of a Blue Ray player here).

Perhaps, but many (i.e. most) companies are still making DVD players. You can get anything from a £20 piece of junk right up to machines that cost hundreds if not thousands, and they're still in development.

The process will slowly take DVD's out of the picture, just like they slowly took VCR's out of the picture, but it will probably take a couple years.

Same. I do wonder why digital distribution haven't become as popular outside North Europe though. One of our 2 national channel's sites allow people to rent movies for a small fee to watch in total-HD online. Though there's very few sites that do that as far as i'm aware.

I don't think it will be quite the same as the VCR-DVD switch. The difference with that was computers. DVD's weren't just better, they were more versatile (hence, Digital Versatile Disk). Computers could use them to store data, you could watch movies from them, they made pretty coasters, etc. VHS tapes were large, broke easily, and could only hold ~3 hours of video, nothing else. The only difference with DVD's and Blu-Ray is the capacity and the price.

Cheapest: Blu-Ray Burner: $234.99 Blu-Ray-R (1): $8.99 DVD Burner: $21.99 DVD-R (10): $7.99

I sure as hell am not getting it until it goes down in price. I don't think I'll have files over 4.7gb for awhile, and If I do, I'll jump to the Dual-Layer DVD's, not 25gb of storage. If you say I might want it for backing up stuff, I'll stay with my RAID5, and get a tape backup, that's much cheaper.
