RE: "Blu Ray" expected to take off - Survey
Blu-Ray has been outselling HD DVD in terms of movies, but the absolute numbers were not that significant.
Anecdotally, I do know a number of people buying Blu-Ray movies (they got a PS3 so might as well get the Blu-Ray version rather than the DVD version). Myself and most of my friends own HDTVs and have so for years (these are mostly guy friends who care about TVs, female friends are generally cool with their old 27" CRT from back in the day).
I am on my third HDTV now. The prices of these things have come down deeply. For example, my 42" 1080p LCD HDTV from Magnavox was $999 from Costco (3 year warranty) a while back. 65" 1080p DLP HDTV from Toshiba was $999 from Fry's Electronics just after Christmas (it was a doorbuster deal).
HDTV is a must for watching sports, 24, Lost, etc. At this time, I personally use a 1080p upconverting DVD player just because I have so many DVDs. DVDs are also extremely cheap now, with stores like Best Buy doing $3.99 sales every week now.
