    ...is reported to use the Blu-Ray disc which holds...

    54 GB!!!

    of data.

    Sony is also working on a single optical pickup for CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray.

    I guess that's important for backward compatibility.

    Although $ony has already committed to plans incorporating the upcoming Blu-Ray (25GB single-layer/50GB dual-layer) Discs for the PlayStation 3 console, the "alternative" Next-Gen media known as HD-DVDs (15GB single-layer/30GB dual-layer) may still be implemented in future Micro$oft/Nintendo consoles. For example, GameCube's current 1.5GB Optical Discs deliver a proprietary, piracy-resistant storage solution, however, as we all know developers quickly fill the discs up. For this reason, there is a good chance HD-DVD may be a viable option as opposed to the more costly implementation of Blue-Ray Discs.

    To speculate briefly, if PlayStation 3 performs half as well as its predecessor more than 40 million people around the world would eventually own a Blu-Ray player bringing down the associated technology costs... simply by owning a PS3! As detailed above, Blu-Ray Discs promise storage space advantages over HD-DVD Discs for developers resulting in even more cinematic games. Finally, Blu-Ray discs can potentially store extra game content too that can be unlocked when activated on-line... so the possibilities are endless indeed, but only time will tell for certain!

    There looking into HD-DVD too

    Actually, no they aren't.

    Blu-Ray is mostly Sony's baby so why would they use a competing format?

    Here's a list of founders:


    Dell, Inc.
    Hewlett-Packard Company
    Hitachi, Ltd.
    LG Electronics Inc.
    Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.
    Mitsubishi Electric Corporation
    Pioneer Corporation
    Royal Philips Electronics
    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
    Sharp Corporation
    Sony Corporation
    TDK Corporation
    Thomson

    20th Century Fox is also invloved.

    Its a alternative, sony will still do blu-ray. Dosent mean they cant look into it.

    @cpt_azad, yeah thats a little to much for me. I would just get 2 500gigs, that would save alot of money.

    The backers of HD-DVD and Blu-Ray know that putting the respective technologies in game consoles amount to a Trojan horse for early adopters.

    Xbox 2 (Xenon) will be here late 2005, and PS3 will be here early 2006. I think that is what i heard.

    I think it might take longer
