Technically superior how again? because it can store more info on a disc when its completly not needed? hm... I just cant seem to think of what else could possible make BD technically superior to HD DVD, fact is you sound like you just got off of a Sony website and are regurgitating what you have read. Its ok...Sony does that to alot of people, fool them that is.

OC...

wow someone sounds bitter. Yes its technically superior and yes it will be needed. If its not needed why have hddvd out of there 2 announcements they bragged about a 51gb TL disc.

why TL when you can have it on 2 layers.

In the future when I am writing BD50s, I like to know I could fit loads of content and tv episodes on one disc. Thats how it will be needed in the future.

there has been a lot of good news for blu-ray this week. I think it knot some of the hd-dvd supporters smug off as there reply have sounded bit more harsh and a lot less smug.

The only thing that is happening in the real world is main stream customers are not sure what to buy. Most of my friends call me when they are getting ready to buy some sort of new gizmo. Be it a car or HDTV.
Not one of my close friends even wants to touch Blu-Ray or HD-DVD. Most feel its not worth the trouble. In fact I have one friend right now looking at a DVD player that upconverts his DVDs to HD. Even after I told him it was not the same as HD DVD or BLU RAY.
The only thing that is getting a few people off the fence is price. And once again that is where HD-DVD is winning.
One thing though that I think really hurts BLU-RAY that came out of the CES show was LG announcement. Getting a dual format HD player really means that companies will be able to make discs that cost the least. So if HD-DVDs continue to hold the advantage on cost of production, more companies will use it.

If Blu Ray had their way the would be called Blu Ray dvd....however they were denied by the board and now have to call themselves Blu Ray discs. They cant even get the name right. HD DVD's PQ will always be one step ahead of Blu Ray, their prices will always be more resonable and the people who support them will always have a better sex life.

Only because Sony has 50 gig, otherwise they would've thrown out any number just to trump them. You do realize there are already 50 gig BR discs out there right? Yet they leave about 10-12gig of it empty, why is that? No more extras? Yet the standard def versions have like 10 extra hours of stuff, so why not include it on BR?? Space is only good if you use it, not just as a bragging point. But lemme guess...just wait and see??

I wonder if DVD-HD would've been better for a name or would it have confused the public? By saying HD DVD , you know right off its different. But Blu Ray? Someone said it sounded like a porn actor.

Higher bandwidth of up to 288 Mbps being looked at currently by the BDA.
Higher badwidth on movie discs - Blu-ray can allow a video feed at 40 Mbps with another 15 Mbps left over for audio tracks, HD DVD is limited to 36.55 Mbps for both together.

How is BR going to increase it almost tenfold? And what would prevent HD DVD from doing the same, since I thought BR was also already capped?
