    How would "using the HD DVD disc structure and employing Sony's multi-layer data-recording technology" effect the amount of data present on a high def DVD? The reason i am a believe in BlueRay is because it can hold more data, but I understand that HD-DVD would be a cheaper and easier transition.

    I should also note that this needs to be hammered out ASAP!
    There are a lot of products that woul dhave to be replaced if BlueRay and HD-DVD stuff started to get released then they unifed the formats and made the equipment useless. The story mentions the Playstation 3, but we must also remember that Apple wants to include high def burners into their new line of PowerMacs, so they wont want to release the line until there is a desision made.
