I have been following this story courtesy of the BBC Tech pages, if you read the link above, you can then find more info via the stories linked on the right hand side of the page. It looks like another industry fuck up to me..... :angry:

 

Oh and Microsoft are going for the rival discs not the Sony ones..... :wacko:

I personally think it will remain a niche market until HD-TV's become far more widespread than they are now. With a regular TV, they can't use the lines of resolution that a regular DVD puts out, let alone hi-cap HD discs. We'll see it in console game machines, a few consumers who like to ride the top of the trends, and of course computer use. If the respective electronic companys don't play their cards right, IMO it could end up like SACD and DVD-A, a small little market that can barely sustain itself. Your normal consumer will not rush out to replace the many dvd's they've bot. I suspect a lot of members here will be interested in it, but I really think we'll be a minority. My 2 cents.

Saw the HDTVs in Florida - lovely picture but I just know that when I see them in lots of shops over here they are gonna cost a hell of a lot more :angry: Plus most of our TV isn't broadcast to that standard yet so whats the point ?
