CEA says don't buy next-gen players - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I still personally would want to back up my stuff on an External HDD. I also watched Talladega Nights from a PS3 on my setup and wasn't overly impressed with the quality (The letterbox was still there, ***), HD channels that play movies looked better than it IMO. I'm still gonna get the HD-DVD player for my Xbox at Christmas to get a better assessment.

I hope both win and players will have both technologies, no one really loses

I don't see why you wouldn't just get one of the players that can play both formats? They're already hitting the market and with time I'm sure if one format doesn't come out clearly on top, the majority of players would be dual format (all of them support standard DVD and CDs so that's just assumed.

I personally like Blu-ray because it's not 50GB max on a disc, I think its 25GB per layer and they already have been testing discs with over 200GB, lemme check real quick.

Yep, 200GB - Read the August 31 update.

EDIT:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc

According to the Blu-ray Wiki Blu-ray discs hold 33GB per layer and can not only have multiple layers (6 33GB layers per side is the highest they've tested, that's TDK's 200GB disc) but can also be dual sided so you could theoretically not only have 4 or 6 layers but have that many layers on each side, once they get a 6 layer, dual sided disc out you've got 400GB on a disc, though it'd probably cost more than a similarly sized hard drive
