    Found this over at The Spot. Not sure if it has been posted yet or not, but if it is a legit write-up, maybe we will see something tomorrow or soon there after. I have no source for the article.

    Amazing. Sony is actually joining! They usually go their own way.

    Well, the lone holdout appears to be Toshiba--and that company was essential to the DVD's development. Looks like Blu-ray is going to win out over MPEG-4/red laser.

    Jack B,

    We can only hope. I just wonder how long it is going to take the studios to start supporting a high definition digital disc since most don't want a format that could eventually be read in a computer drive. I think this one reason some studios are support JVC's so called new and improved VHS format.

    According to John Dvorak, of PC MAGAZINE fame, the Blu-Light player/recorders will only be available in Japan until late 2004 or early 2005.
    According to him, this will allow the "movie boys" to move forward with a short-term ruby red HD-DVD format based on a high compression format (but not MPEG-4.)
    Here's a link to his very interesting article:

    Now, my question, of course, is what does all this mean in relation to Lucas' big November 2006 Star Wars OT release to "standard" DVD??
