They will become cheap enough as soon as everyone replaces ALL of their DVD's with
Blu Ray or HDDVD.  And we're all suckers so we will end up replacing our whole libraries
with the new technology.  I can't wait for the new audio format to come out so I can
purchase Dark Side of the Moon for the 5th time (first four - Vinyl, Cassette, CD and MP3). 
Also can't wait to purchase Apocalypse Now again, VHS, Beta, DVD and now what...  I guess
I'll get it on Blu Ray AND HDDVD so I can compare them and argue with my friends.  How about
we start a petition to not change from DVD.  We're all suckers.
