I dunno if we abstainers will make a bit of difference, but I'm happy to see Blu-ray sales aren't exactly rocketing off the charts and rendering DVD extinct.
As one of those guys who gets AV tech-advice calls from friends, family and co-workers, I'm proud to advise them "no" on Blu-ray. Unless you have a high end home theater and/or money is no object, get a good upres DVD player HDMI'd to a good HD TV. It won't give you the retinalgasms of Blu-ray, but IMO it's good enough until the next format war starts.
And if you don't think that'll happen anytime soon, I've got a few thousand LaserDiscs to sell you.
