WildWalker;37531 said:At the moment both Blu Ray and HD-DVD are on Generation 1 and are working on Generation 2 drives, Blue Ray is touted as the better standard (due to higer storage) but I think HD-DVD will win out on its lower price point. (same as Betamax was better than VHS but VHS was cheaper, so thats what the consumers went for)
monlienNH3;37545 said:All PS3 retail games are on Blu-ray discs. This can allow for more content to be placed on the disc, but the quality of the image has nothing to do with the disc - only the content. Most games on Blu-ray won't even come close to filling the disc unless they add a massive amount of CG cutscenes. Some, if not most, blu-ray games probably easily fit on a DVD-9. Lots of games on PS2/XBOX that were on DVD only used about 20-30% of the disc. The reason movies look and sound so much better on HD-DVD and Blu-ray is the fact that they don't have to be compressed as much, they are mastered at a higher resolution, and the audio is usually offered 100% uncompressed. You could put an HD signal on a DVD if you had a DVD player that could output the signal, but you would not be able to fit an entire movie on the disc at the higher resolution. Basically HD-DVD and Blu-ray are just storage media.
WildWalker;37531 said:Blue Ray and HD-DVD are newer standards for what you know as DVD. They can hold more Data and have faster transfer rates.This basically means that you can get higer video data rates from the disc which equals higher video quality. At the moment both Blu Ray and HD-DVD are on Generation 1 and are working on Generation 2 drives, Blue Ray is touted as the better standard (due to higer storage) but I think HD-DVD will win out on its lower price point. (same as Betamax was better than VHS but VHS was cheaper, so thats what the consumers went for)I know that some Second Gen Blue Ray drives 'will' support HD-DVD reading, and I would expect in the fullness of time that both formats will read/write both discs (ala dual format, like the DVD+ and DVD- combo drives)WW
TheRocker;37645 said:I dont think so , haven't you read the article of how Project Gotham I dont know wich one well the newest one won't fit on a Normal Dvd , Solution BluRay. Games are becoming bigger and more complex each day so the developers will need more space so they can freely work without having any restrains.
Kang_Zircon;37552 said:There's one thing I've never faound a straight answer for about Blu-ray/HD-DVD. Are the movies tied to a certain format (compression). If they have so much stroge space can an entire season/seires of an older TV program be placed on a single disc? Or does the video have to be a certain size, whether or not the show was in HD & Surround? I know from making normal DVD's formatting the video can be a super pain...
