    1.12 When will I be able to buy Blu-ray Disc products?


    The only place where you can currently buy Blu-ray Disc products is in Japan, where they already sell Blu-ray Disc recorders for recording HDTV. If you live in the US then you will most likely have to wait until the Blu-ray launch sometime in early 2006. While we've heard very little about the launch plans for the European market, we expect it to follow shortly after the US (a few products might launch earlier). We expect more details about the Blu-ray launch and upcoming products at CES in January 5-8, 2006.

    Blu-Ray will crush HD-DVD.

    The PS3 is the Trojan Horse for it. Not only that, it has a higher storage capacity.

    It will win in the movie, game, and PC user department.

    HD-DVD backers should just hang it up.

    Had M$ used HD-DVD in the 360 (like originally planned) then the format would have had life. Weird that M$ backs HD-DVD but didn't include it in it's game console. One would have thought that HD-DVD makers would have thrown M$ a bone and lowered the cost of it to jumpstart their format. The innovators of HD-DVD also screwed up by not releasing it on time. M$ might even have doomed the 360 by not including the next-gen format in their next-gen machine.

    Sony will finally win a format war. Mini Discs, Memory Sticks, Betamax...all failed to catch on except in a Sony product.

    I've read that HP is supporting HD-DVD. HP wants to "avoid a repeat of the VHS-Betamax" incident. I believe the HD-DVD shows promise.

    How are they avoiding a repeat when they support both? Dell supports Blu-Ray only. They are hoping to avoid a repeat by supporting one. It's weird that HP is picking up HD-DVD when Blu-Ray has so much firmly on it's side.

    Intel and M$ are the only "lone" supporters of HD-DVD and the only redeeming factor for choosing it is that is easier to manufacture. DVD facilities are easy to convert to HD-DVD.

    Well what's so bad about HD-DVD? It has more space capacity. Are there some security flaws with HD-DVD technology?

    I don't care either way as long as we have a HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DeCrypter!

    If the porn industry decides to back HD-DVD, blu-ray is dead.

    That might be quite an issue. I'm quite sure that the new format(s) will have new protection schemes.
