Warped, G@m3fr3@k, Gristy, This is not about capacity. While I would agree with you that the capacity should not leap too far ahead of what the actual game sizes are, however, this, I am sure, is NOT $ony'$ motiviation. Their motivation is strictly that there are currently no BR burners out there and even when they do come out, chances are, they will adhere to a standard that is close, but not quite the standard $ony is using on their PS3 games. You'll see. Shadowman, The problem with trying to repack those BR discs is that current and next generation (i.e. DL, since I am not aware of any readily available DL recorders, yet) DVD/RW's will not be able to read the BR discs. Yes Sony's BR drive in the PS3 will have no trouble being backward compatible with current CD/DVD-rom games and DVD5/9 videos, but current drives are not forward compatible to blue ray.
