Sony's PS2 is blu-ray, no doubts there. The Xbox is almost certain to be HD-DVD. This is good in a way, particularly if you are planning to buy both consoles as you will have players capable of reading either of the formats. I dont really see the limited capacity of HD-DVD being an issue for games though. If there is going to be a game bigger than 30 gigs I would like to know what it is. However, the advantages of blu-ray are to be found in the computer and movie scene. Unfortunately, some of the movie companies can't see that.
