    well that's what the point is , HD-DVD will be almost equal to a dvd in pricing and a single layer version will provide 15 GB space so it'll be much more cheaper . i think HD-DVD will win .

    u knw lets not make this another thread of HD-DVD vs. Blueray.Hey guys both have their share of advantages and disadvantages.Some of the big companies are backing up each of the technologies but one thing is for sure that both technologies are here to stay and only time will decide who will be the next best technology.As far as the world's largest PC manufacturer (I mean DeLL) is concerned they are backing Blueray so its future at this point of time seems to be more bright.
