Tadashi Okamura, Toshiba's president, said he will continue his
efforts to reach an agreement with Sony, and all other companies
involved, to create a unified next-generation DVD format. A solution
to unify the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD formats is said to be near. Last month
Toshiba and Sony reached final stages of the negotiations, but they
were postponed as Toshiba stated the superiority of Blu-ray hasn't
been proven yet. Okamura said the structure of the next-generation DVD
format for video discs has to be determined according to interests of
users, rather as the result of negotiations between two companies.
Sony's main ally, Matsushita, recently stated it will not give up on
the idea of backing Blu-ray and Sony already decided to use Blu-ray
for its PlayStation 3 console. Recently TDK released a prototype of a
100GB Blu-ray disc, while HD-DVD can only hold 45GB.






"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
-- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
