Playstation 3 goes Blu-Ray

Sony eats its own dog-food with DVD tech

Sony revealed yesterday that the DVD drives on its next-gen console will be powered by Sony's own Blu-Ray technology. Blu-Ray is one of two competing standards that are vying for common acceptance as the next standard for DVDs. Blu-Ray DVDs can hold 23Gb of information, as opposed to the 4.7Gb that current DVDs can manage. Sony will no doubt be keen on the idea of getting a large number of Blu-Ray devices out onto the market, and with predicted sales of the PS3 being this side of massive, they should get a good penetration without having to exert much in the way of effort.
