His source is his imagination. It's hard to post a link to that.

Here's one. Sony will use Kam-Ray in the PS4, it will play 4k movies, and each disc will hold 500TB. Every game will also resolve to 4k, and the format will automatically turn any HDMI capable TV into a 4k Super HDTV.

I'm going to start a thread about it know. The PS4 will also super resolve BDs to 4k, but DVD will be an incompatible format. The PS4 will automatically dissolve any 480i source disc that is inserted into it, as all great optical players should.

It's simple.

1. Blu-Ray royalty is $60.
2. Microsoft won't pay Blu-Ray royalty.
3. Hell, Microsoft didn't even pay DVD royalty. They enabled DVD playback on Xbox only after signing a cross-license agreement with Toshiba.
4. There are dozen companies willing to sell 20GB+ red laser drive for $20. Toshiba being one of them. In fact, you can get 28 GB out of red-laser DVD by going quad-layer and implementing HD-DVD modulation.

That's just for the drive, not the player.

So you believe there are $30 more roiyalties that need to be paid.

Do you have a breakdown?

Here is HDMI's royalty:

Here is DVD's royalty:

The drive is what the royalties are paid on. (licence to display the Blu-ray logo etc) the rest of the components are generic.
