It probably will. Blu-ray has been releasing catalog so far at only 1/3 the rate DVD was during comparable times in the lifespan. This year though catalog has picked up and has run of 1/2 of what DVD did during 2002. So it goes without saying that at the current pace it's going to take 2-3 times longer for Blu-ray to output what DVD did. And to make matters worse, Blu-ray has 9 more years of movies to release than DVD did. So it's going to be a recurring theme to most, that Blu-ray is taking forever to release some of their favorite movies.
