HD DVD vs Blu-Ray Disc
Whats the difference. There are many difference in HD and Blu. Blu ray, on average, holds about 60% more data then HD. The bit rates are faster on Blu, in every catagory, that I have seen. It is, in most cases, more advanced then HD. A downside to Blu discs is the way they are made. When recording them, the tilt the laser on a different angle (which is why you cant play blu ray in hd players and vice versa) which allows them to store data closer to the surface, for more room. The problem with this, is scratches are potentially more harmful to the disc. To fix that problem, Sony coats the disc with a specially designed coating. This is supposed to be extremely strong. But it costs more. Also the technology is a little more advanced, so the players cost a bit more.
Now for a while Blu ray players have been selling more software, and more hardware then HD. But HD is claiming to be catchy up, and actually passing Blu-Ray. But a recent discovery in the numbers show that HD is not counting PS3 as a Blu-ray Disc player.
Should Ps3 be counted in? Is Sony just pulling out another beta? Who do you prefer, and why?
