"Is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour?"

I personally don't agree with sticking to just one format as that can limit you and potentially you could miss out on some great films if you play the waiting game. However, for me, it's hard to afford everything that gets released over multiple formats most of the time and I often prioritise Blu (especially LE releases) over everything else, which as a consequence get shoved onto the sprawling 'wish-list'. As others have alluded to there's always the potential for some of these films to make it onto HD eventually so it's very easy and very tempting to play the waiting game - especially as there's so much else available to buy and watch anyway already on Blu... at least for me, and I have been and am constantly guilty of doing this. I could easily reel off about 20 films off the top of my head now that I haven't bought on DVD in the hope that they get a BD release.

From a personal perspective 99% of my buying will be BD but that won't stop me from picking up a DVD if I can't foresee a HD release anytime soon and it's something that I really want to watch. I also buy a load of classic TV stuff from companies like Network on DVD as the chances of it ever appearing in HD is slim to none. I probably still own as many DVDs as BDs but I probably buy about 10 DVDs a year now (predominately TV) compared to a couple of hundred Blus.
