Sony Admits: Blu-Ray Is the Last Optical Disc Format
A representative from Sony said during an interview that Blu-ray may easily be the last and final optical disc format. Sony did not admit that physical media for content will be gone in a decade or even less from now, quite opposite, the firm believes that further incarnations of Blu-ray will allow the technology to live quite a long life.
“Blu-Ray is the final format for the optical disc. We don’t have a shorter laser. In the future, if we have a physical media format, it will change physically. It won’t look like an optical disc. I don’t know what sort of technology we will have in the future,” he said, “but while using lasers and optical discs, this is the final format,” said Taka Miyama, Sony’s product strategy manager for home video marketing in Europe, reports Electricpig web-site.

This makes sense. Either it will be a web driven provision or a small usb flash drive medium.
(I wish it be holographic crystals but I don't think this will happen in our life times)
