    SONY HAS has ordered its US subsidiary to begin the mass-production of Blu-ray ROM disk drives.

    The Japanese outfit will produce 25,000 single-layer 25 gigabyte Blu-ray discs per day, or up to 750,000 discs per month at its plant in Terre Haute in Indiana.

    It aims to step up production to 50 million discs per month by October and manufacture 50 gigabyte dual-layer discs.

    Part of the push will be to coincide with the PlayStation 3 launch in November, which will use the new format.

    Blu-Ray players and computers are starting to hit the market and there will need to be a lot of discs to support that. Sony also plans to start releasing movie titles on the Blu-ray disc format from late June.

    Of course, should HD-DVD win the format war, then all this industry will be like dust in the wind
