Are the DVD format wars moot?

After reading this:

As the major studios continue to battle over Blu-ray and HD DVD, the competing standards for high-definition DVDs, it’s always worth considering whether both camps are ultimately doomed – leapfrogged by straight-to-the-home digital downloads of high definition movies.

by Brad Stone reporting from CES, I have to wonder if is not right. All the hell-and-fury that is the DVD format war could seem pretty moot when we look back on this a few years hence.

Personally I have not upgraded my DVD player, and I am not likely to do so even if the DVD format war is over, or cheap dual-format players come on the market (by cheap I mean under $300).
