That sounds about right. Probably 1-2 years more of growth and then a steady decline. The studios are pulling out of the stops to prop up Blu-ray growth as it is. Offering combo pack with a digital copy for around the same price single disc new release DVDs were back during the same period in its life cycle (2002). A lot of bang for your buck, and now catalog Blu-rays are dirt cheap. Heck a lot of them come out at 10 bucks and work their way down from there.
