Well, as long as they continue using DVDs as well, I'm not complaining.

Let's hope the encode is better this time around... One thing's for sure, they have the chance to make the backgrounds look really gorgeous in HD, since the originals were pretty detailed.

R2 DVDs are already really expensive... how much would a R1 Blu-Ray cost?

I would imagine them to run around $30-$40 starting, then as it gets settled, come down.

I think the BluRay dvds will cost a bit more than 5900 yen (roughly $50US) seeing how it is a new technology. but there is no news to how much these will cost so far.

I'm going to double dip on this, and triple dip if it's ever released in English. Yay for being an insane AIR fanboy!


I hope it's going to be in 1080p resolution, not 720p or 1080i. I don't want to be shortchanged and have to buy it in HD a second time to get the full resolution.

I'm looking at getting a projector from a Taiwanese start-up called Cinetron. I love their name, it sounds so 80s.

It's extremely easy to convert 1080p to 720p. Not so the reverse. You can't bring back those 1,152,000 pixels of resolution once you've thrown the away.

I don't think my DVD burner drive or my DVD player can read BLU RAY. Won't we all need new drives/new players to watch this new BLURAY Air?

I don't think there is a BLURAY PC drive yet... is there?!, I just broght my new notebook not 2 month ago (anyone intreasted in the specs?! :) )

the whole point of going to BLURAY is the extra space isn't it (and other feature to prevent/allow copying)?!, so am expecting higher res from the DVD version. (unless the BLURAY version = DVD BOX SET )

There's also going to be a software layer - in Java I think - which will allow a whole range of things. I'm not too clear on the details, but think interactive games as DVD extras, and that sort of thing.

Even ignoring the cost of a nice high-definition TV set, BluRay players are EXTREMELY expensive. Full featured will run you well over a thousand dollars =(

Although, I think there might be some early drives that don't support the software layer in the 800 range?

Current BluRay prices in Japan courtesy of Amazon Japan are in the 2000 USD range for recorders, 30 USD for single layer blanks and 60 USD for dual layer blanks. Don't see any normal players yet though.

The prices I'd heard were quasi-speculation from an article I'd read a little while ago - like you seem to have found on Amazon, I don't think they're on the market just yet.

PS3 will have BR player and probably won't cost over $500, maybe even less...say $400 or so.
