    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

        BD is about 45gb discs. HD-DVD is not.

          From an AV standpoint (Ie, the reason the disk was designed) HD-DVD is superior.

          People that bang on about the fact that BD has twice the space as a HD-DVD disk, really give me the shits. As the age old saying goes: "It's not how big it it, it's how you use it." And at the end of the day HD-DVD "uses" it's available space much better.

          50GB BR disk, full HD with MPEG2 - 5.5hours
          25GB HD-DVD disk, full HD with VC1 - 5.1 hours.

          25 mins differenc <> twice the space.

          Although I guess BR was developed by Sony, who have over promised and under delivered on practically every product they ever made...

              Yeah, for AV, fine.

              However, for the rest of us who want to use the media for storage, i'll take near on 50gb thanks

              As far as av quality goes, unless you're a nut - with a $20,000 theatre setup, even low def DVD is "good enough" for most people.

              So you're an Xbox360 owner i gather?

                  they might have under achieved but atleast they made the blue ray affordable via the station 3..
                  I heard they are doing a promo $699 now for a playstation 3...
                  can you buy a Hd player for that? that conects to the net? that can load linux on? as well as be a media sever?

                  and in regards to hd being better.. doesnt means shit in the real world
                  look at beta vs Vhs.. it always comes down to price in the end.
                  still i am not knocking the other format just happy with blue ray for the price..and i will finally be able to put all my mp3's on 2 disc'd lol

                    Ahh but there is a TRAP!

                    The $699 PS3 is not Backwards Compatable with PS2 (Even though the $999 was never 100%)
                    Only has a 40gB Hard Drive and they dropped the USB Ports from 4 to 2.

                    There were some other things, but I forget.

                        The "trap" isn't that bad.

                        I already have a PS2. I have used the ps1 compatibility mode on it like... 3 times.

                        And i have significant library (like, 45+ originals) of ps1 games.

                        I would wager that in the real world, most people won't bother with PS2 games on PS3 either.

                            PS3 should have done what MS is doing and have a external drive instead because looking at the specs the BR drive is really slow

                              "As HD-DVD players have dropped below $200, Blu-ray is starting the feel the pressure. In one such move, Kmart has decided to drop Blu-ray players from its stores, mostly because of pricing" Ref

                              Game over?
