Blu-Ray BD-ROM format has been finalized,
and people can start designing their 23 Gig BD-ROM/-R/-RW drives for mass distribution in 2005.
Notably absent from the announcement were Microsoft, NEC and Toshiba, who are developing a different high-capacity disc format, called HD-DVD. Disney is also backing HD-DVD
Sony is putting BD-ROM into the Playstation 3, while
Microsoft will put HD-DVD into the XBox 2
Of course, along with BD-ROM and HD-DVD, we also have
EVD and FVD
FVD is basically Windows Media format.
