Sony have announced that their upcoming PlayStation 3 will launch with support for Blu-Ray discs. The greater storage capacity of the Blu-Ray discs should be ever larger (and hopefully more impressive) games to the PS3.
Whether this spells the end for the HD-DVD format or know is anyone’s guess. Each format uses a blue laser to increase the density of data on the disc. Expect to see a Japanese launch in 2005, no word on arrival in Australia yet.
