    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.
