In case anyone missed it Warner announced it was going strictly to Blu Ray a few days ago. It was the last major studio to make a decision and it get Blu Ray a big boost.

The rest is still unconfirmed rumors but it sounds like a lot of the other major studios left with HD-DVD may want to switch.

In the long run I think Blu Ray probably would be the way to go but I think its going to take awhile for them to take off. They have more memory capacity than the HD-DVD's but I think they're a little more expensive to produce. Eventually I'm sure like all electronics they'll start getting cheaper to produce and become more affordable. I can wait. I'm in no hurry to buy one. My standard DVD player works for me. \:\)

Heh we were discussing this at work just a couple hours ago.

Ok on to my dumb question. The Blu-Ray discs are about 25 GB right? Does that I can put 25 GB of movie files on one disc or is it still going to be about 2+ hours of video that the disc can contain? If a disc could contain 25 GB of video I would be impressed.
