HD DVD and Blu-Ray encryption defeated using one key

On Sunday, a Doom9 forum poster named “arnezami” discovered how the Processing Key could be used for decryption on both HD DVD and Blu-ray discs (Previously every HD movie needed its own unique key in order to be decrypted). Arnezami used only an Xbox 360 HD DVD player, the bundled King Kong movie and his computer to find the key. Other Doom9 forum contributors proved that both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies could be decrypted using the Processing Key found from King Kong.

Arnezami isn’t revealing which software player he used to expose the key information for fear that the Advanced Access Content System Licensing Administrator would crackdown on the software developer.

This sounds like we're on the verge of n00b-friendly HD-DVD rippers, however with Blu-Ray featuring other antipiracy features this may help sony's MPAA-friendly format take the lead in the format wars

but if it has already be decrypted and the protection gone, why would they move to the blue ray when it also already been cracked with the same key?
