Triple-layer 51GB HD-DVD May Be Ready

Several news outlets are reporting the DVD Forum has approved, or is close to approving, Toshiba's 51GB, triple-layer, single-sided HD DVD, which was first announced at the CES show this year.

Storing 17GB on each of the three layers, the new HD DVD, if used in production, would surpass Blu-ray Disc's 50GB.

One gig,WOW.This is s triple layer disc the 50 gig blu-ray is dual layer.Not to mention the triple layer blu-ray will be 100 gigs and unlike
the triple layer hd-dvd the triple layer blu-ray can play on all blu-ray players through a simple firmware update.

Some studios preached the need for 50gb so hence HD DVD has the TL51 disk eventually due out soon

As it stands, there are some hurdles. Remember that HD DVD was designed for movies and that 50gb is NOT needed for movies. BD started as a PC storage medium and jumped into the movie realm. Obviously as a storage medium it is all great but for movies, 50gb is overkill let alone 100gb or even the 200gb. Again, for HIGH DEF MOVIES, disk space is a pissing contest.

Might as well put a Geo Metro engine in a big rig and claim you have more space. Pure stupidity and Toshiba and MS are praying you are just that stupid. I can already hear the little MS sheep coming over to complain about these facts. Sorry kiddies just because you are 360 fanboi's doesn't mean you should blindly attack blu-ray and worship HD DVD. You are really selling yourself short if you do and showing you have low standards.

Toshiba needs to ditch MS and the goal for ultra low bitrates. Consumers aren't stupid we know MS simply wants to transition HD DVD into their crappy low quality live downloads.

People do not settle for barely above DVD quality. Go with Blu-ray and get the ultimate home theater experience.

What the hell are you talking about? Your comments are always so irrelevant. What does the 360 have to do with this?

Why is this site full of so many morons? Just a bunch of idiotic fanboys arguing back and forth. How old are the people here? I only heard about this site recently, and it's nice to see some stories that normally wouldn't get press, but the comment section is normally very difficult to read. The fanboyism here (on all three sides) is insanely high. Why is this? What is it about this site that attracts childish commenters? My mind literally hurts reading some of these comments. And it's too bad because this site could be so much better if rampant ignorance wasn't so prevalent.
