I was reading something earlier about a new blu ray format and had to pause the show I was watching and read more about it. They are making a 125 gig blu ray? What in the hell is the point of that? Movies look fine on DVD and great on blu ray. I just can not understand how many movies will use all this space. Blu ray is still new. Many people still have not switched from DVD. Plus, no body buys movies on discs anymore. A lot of people download them. I prefer to buy hard copies of my movies.

I wonder how much a ps3 would cost that could pay the new blu rays? I will not buy a blu ray player. No room. My PS3 does that for me. All the players and burners they have and they expect people to switch? Forget that. I'm happy with blu rays.

I don't think the format is changing, only the size of the disk. Sort of like a bigger hard drive. You should still be able to play the "new" 125 GB disk on old players. There may be some firmware updates coming down the road (likely because blu ray is an incomplete format) but I doubt there will be a higher res format for some years to come. It would mean a complete change out for all equipment (TV cameras, Video Cameras, Broadcast transmitters, TV sets) to accomodate the higher bandwidth necessary for higher definition (2560x1440).

I think I heard that the laser is different. Some one was saying you would need a new player and TV for the things to work. The first 4k TV was just released or put out for pre order. It only cost $25,000 dollars. So, nothing for me or most people to worry about for a good while.
