Blu-ray vs HD DVD Replication Costs Revealed @ Wesleytech

Definitely an interesting read.

From these figures taken from 3 different replication sources, we can see that Blu-ray media replication does not cost significantly more than HD DVD. In fact, we found that Blu-ray is actually cheaper per GB in many situations! It is also interesting to note that at this point, most HD DVD-ROM movies are DL, while most BD-ROM movies are SL, which would make HD DVD more expensive to replicate in most situations.

So much for the FUD spewed by HD DVD supporters. :P

Nice to finally have some real numbers. And what a big surprise that Toshiba's propaganda was technically correct, but only for single layer movies.... which are not very common.

Score another notch for BluRay :wink:
