Well, it was to be expected, but no one believed it. There was no way it did anyone any good to launch discs before the machines. It was really a bad idea.

What I'm concerned about, is that it has now been confirmed that all the BD first-year initial releases will be single-layer 25 Gig.

Worse yet, it's been confirmed that these early releases will be using mpeg2 instead of VC1 (which is much better).

There is no way I'll buy mpeg2 releases in these new formats, having seen how good VC1 is. And especially if they want me to pay $1,000 to $1,800 first for the priviledge.
