New Disc May Sway DVD Wars

Consumers wary of buying new high-definition DVD players because of a technology war reminiscent of the days of Betamax versus VHS will soon have a new kind of DVD that might make the decision less daunting.

This isn’t a surprise. I said way back when the formats were introduced that you could combine them because they showed BD/DVD on one disc, and HD-DVD has the same physical structure. And, of course, a dual-sided disc is possible. But I think this will just prolong the pain of the format war, and it will always cost more to produce a dual-format disc.

CES is next week – expect a surge of news.
