Default The Third Format: HD VMD

Sounds intriguing, but I bet it won't go anywhere.

If they would have announced this a year ago, they really would have had something.

Yeah, definitely...I'm surprised/impressed they're able to squeeze so much space out of a red laser-based disc.

Ah well. *hugs 360 HD DVD drive and HD-A2*

I bet your right. It isn't just the storage that is the problem. You'd need a new player regardless, since standard dvd players cannot handle HD content, and dvd standards aren't even close in both video and audio. If it worked in a computer with a standard player, then it might catch on as a new type of medium, but I don't really see it doing much otherwise.
