after seeing this article i was wondering what the actual difference between the two formats of the future high definition media. i found this snippet posted by some guy named jimmy at the highdef message boards that explains them concisely and completely. i was also reminded of sony's push for blu-ray when they stated that it is going to be in the next playstation. i think HD DVD is the smarter choice. the technology behind it is both cost concious and more advanced. but i'm afraid Sony might muscle it's way in.
