Blu-ray adoption continues to pace ahead of DVD ...

At first I did not believe this, but found a graph showing it was the case. The study was done in 2008, although they extrapolated data to 2011. Bogus.

Studios have been trying unsuccessfully to sell blu-rays at a premium price to DVDs. 30-40$ is crazy optimism when people are attuned to paying 15-20 for newer DVDs. I think they hurt themselves here and further encouraged the migration to streaming.

I think an even bigger impact is the realization by many of my generation that, while it's cool to have bought a ton of movies that you can play any time you want, the reality is that there's only a tiny percentage of your huge collection that you've actually watched more than once - so there's really no point in buying most of them.
