Meh, Blu Ray has caught on pretty well IMO. It just took a while.

Yeah most people I know have at least one blu-ray player now. It just took a while for it to grow, and it still has lots of head room.

Agreed. Plus unless you have an HDTV why would you get a blu-ray? I think a couple years ago most people were just starting to get HDTV's. So once 3D TV's become affordable I think you'll see it catch on more. I don't think it'll fail, but I don't think it'll be as big as some people are making it out to be.

Never used it so no comment. I can't see it being a huge selling point, but that's just me. I thought the jump to DVD from VHS was way better than DVD to B-ray

I think 3D will only catch on when you don't need to use glasses. Also as for the Blu-Ray thing considering some big name releases have actually outsold the DVD releases on Amazon I think it's a success. I personally can not go back to standard-def.
