Actually there will be Blu-Ray/HD-DVD players. LG Electronics is planning to release one later this year. It's not hard to have players read BD and HD-DVD because they both use blue-violet lasers to read the data. The only difference is the way the data is stored.

I just don't. HD-DVD in my eyes is the lesser of the format. I don't want Blu-Ray to die for HD-DVD to suceed. They either both do, or Blu-Ray does.

As for the drives not playing both. Whats all this about Sony's PS3 being able to play all kinds of media? Surely that must have two lasers?
