Just thought I would add that Sony has already stated it has four-layer 100GB and eight-layer 200GB Blu-ray disks in development. Both are expected to be available in 2007. Once again, Blu-ray is the format we should all support, at least in my opinion.

The problem with Blu-ray is that Sony is behind it, and Sony are no fan of open standards.

The problem I have with Blu-ray is that it's blantly ahead of its time. There is virtually nothing in the home entertainment market that could take full advantage of a dual-layer's 50gb storage, let alone 100gb or 200gb versions, at the present time. In 2008 when everything in America will supposedly be in Hi-Def, then I can see Blu-ray becoming the standard. For right now, HD-DVD is the less expensive and more practical approach in my opinion.

Some people think that 54GB is too much storage for today. They just don't realize how much space HD video takes up. It takes 2GB for just 20 minutes of 720-progressive video. That's just video, not including a surround sound Dolby Digital and/or DTS audio track. That means that a dual-layer, 30GB HD-DVD disc wouldn't be enough to hold something like the extened edition of Return of the King. It would still have to come on two discs, plus one more for extras. And I'm just talking 720p; eventually movies should come in 1080p, and then we will definitely need 100GB or 200GB of storage (especially for TV collections).

Yes finally 100GB for GTA. Now we can add 3 more citites. Seriously though it would be good to be able to back up things and not have to buy another hard drive.
