The very definition of a mixed blessing. On the one hand, 25GB of data storage and the ability to record four hours of high definition video, all on a disc the same size as a DVD or CD. On the other hand, DRMed to the teeth and boobytrapped to boot.
You don't think $750 for a Blu-Ray drive is too much, do you? I got some movies to make.

What is most likely to become the next form of media. Blu Ray was developed by Sony so it will obviously be on the PS3! Some movies are already using Blu ray technology. Although Blu Ray is Currently not popular (may vary at time period of which you read this) there is still Blu Ray players available (lots of $).

Blu ray disks are basically the thing the will make DVDs obsolete. Like what DVDs did to videos. Each side oh a blu ray disk can hold 25 GB, and dual can hold 50 GB, and get this, they're making a quad-layered one with 100 GB.
Blu Ray + PS3 = lots of $ :(

A new disc format made by Sony Corporation. It is primarily used to store High Definition video but it can also be used to store data like a DVD. Blu-ray uses a blue laser operating at a wavelength of 405 nm to read and write data. The small wavelength allows to store up to 200GB on a disc in 8 layer mode. A typical single layer blu-ray disc can hold 25GB. A popular video game console that uses blu-ray is Sony PlayStation 3.
Bob: "Do you have blu-ray?"

Tom: "NO. what's that?"

Bob "It's this new disc format made by SONY that can hold 25GB"

Tom: "so..."

Bob "It can hold HD content"

Tom: "Super cool"

Created by Sony
"Bag of hurt" according to Steve Jobs
"Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt. It's great to watch the movies, but the licensing of the tech is so complex, we're waiting till things settle down and Blu-ray takes off in the marketplace."

1. Something the corporations should release from their million ton per sq. inch greedy jaws if they expect it to take off any time soon in this economy.

2. Something stupid ass motherfuckers like the ones who bought laserdiscs bought as soon as it came out to feel like they're on the bleeding edge, but having to update their players after each weekly update of the format for the following few years. Basically, people with more money than brains.
I have to buy this faggoty DRM raped Blu-Ray shit to watch any movie in HD? Screw those assholes. And screw their greedy hollywood clutches and the stores where they feel the need to lock up these precious pieces of shit like they were their mother's secret, stolen panties. What, it's not enough they threw all sorts of faggot, obnoxious, irritating bullshit schemes on DVD to try (and fail) to protect their precious, coveted masterpiece intellectual crockerty like Snakes On A Plane Director's Cut that only made pirates laugh while purchasers had to screw around with that crap?

In New York, they say "pause" as their "no homo". Therefore, we pause, and never rewind back. If you can't fast forward, fuckin step speed that shit. Now that we're in the 21st century, we can bluray that shit super fast.
"Yo, my D's still sore from last night wit that girl, bluray"
