ive heard alot about them and i hear sony made a blueray recorder for like 3 grand or something. Im anxious to find out when they are avaliable worldwide and not just in japan. Anyone have any info on this?
I don't know, maybe theyre thinking..."better safe than sorry<" but really I think they just want to push the format since theyre the ones behind it really. honestly I don't think blueray or hd dvd are ever going to replace dvd as the prime medium for data, i think they'll just be kinda niche until something real revolutionary comes along
well a normal dvd burner cant do anything with a blue ray disc. They would have to make new burners for blue ray cause it uses a blue laser instead of a red laser like a dvd burner. i do think theyre going to replace dvds because by like 07 or something; theyll end up being the same price as dvds now so why not go ahead and get them. you would need like 5 dvds to record a movie in hd while the blue ray only takes 1 disc. hd is becoming a big part of the world now and is rising so yea these will end up replacing dvds.
I don't know...unless they force feed 'em to the public. unfortunately, neccessity does not dictate what we get, they do. so maybe they will be mainstream but I don't think there will ever being an overwhelming NEED for it before something even better comes along.
