Awesome news! It really is impossible to buy them in a physical store with HMV closing down, but online retailers are booming now.

It's great news but I do find that it's difficult to convince many 'casual' viewers of the benefits of Blu - you get comments like, 'well, I'm happy with it on DVD' or 'you don't need to watch X/Y on Blu-ray'. There is a lameness to the reasons because from my perspective if there is a superior product available, even if it's a couple of quid/dollars more, then you may as well embrace it even if you're only a casual fan! Of course I'm preaching to the converted on this site but the obstinate mind-set of many film viewers (along with the slapdash attitude of the bigger studios) is the only thing holding Blu-ray back from world domination.
