When will said new disc's come out? You cannot expect people to not purchase anything on blueray until the new format of discs get released. When they are released they will more than likely cost a nice hefty premium and majority of people will wait for the prices to drop significantly before considering moving over.
I am not sure about them being UV, have not done any research on it.
Although would need to be quite large if 4K is to take off. 4x the capacity in theory due to 4x the resolution and therefore detail too.

It seems that the future holds a whole lot more than 25 to 54 GB on a single disc. According to T3: Pioneer goes beyond Blu-Ray, Pioneer is developing an optical disc that will blow away the hard disc in most of our PCs in terms storage capacity, holding 500 GB of data. How so? Pioneer's lasers are ultraviolet, which have an even shorter wavelength than the blue.
At t3 this year and yes bluray is better and all ps3 users got one by default Maybe this is why bluray won the hi def disc

having the ps3 bluray enabled is exactly the reason it won the media war, especially considering the cost of standalone bluray players at the time.
even those simply wanting HD movies bought one and got a games machine for the same price which likely in turn meant more game sales from households that would not have had a ps3 otherwise
i doubt discs will be used much in a few years anyway. the way digital delivery is headed, there will be no demand for physical copies. those like me that like shelves full of discs are a minority in the age of netflix etc
as for the actual quality, both formats looked excellent but i am still very happy with DVD/XVID quality
