Rip Van Blu-Ray

Those who took the HD-DVD plunge may be interested to find out it's possible to convert an HD-DVD disk to Blu-Ray. Possible, but not simple and definitely not particularly cheep at the moment. Hopefully by the time this sort of thing becomes a real issue for people the prices of all the devices will have dropped.

I think it's probably more likely that everyone (except Sony) will start making dual-mode players that have both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD capability, like with the whole "DVD+R/DVD-R" business. It's not as though it's a hugely expensive capability that will add thousands of dollars to the cost of the unit.
