Yes, but blank Blue rays are very expensive at the moment.

Yes for Video if the guy has used a Blue Ray as the source.

Not for games, PS3 can not read backup games.

It is interesting. as long as the proper Blu Ray has been ripped and burnt as a proper HD blu ray, it should be identical.

I see a large variation on costs of disks, around £9 each is what I remember them to be, and the decent ones are. But on the link I see a cake pack of 10 for £15 which is very cheap.

I can see why people may use standard DVD and maybe upscale them onto backups...

I will wait for someone who knows more than me to come along I think..

As mentioned above, the disks are still too expensive. I would recommend going to [url]www.cex.co.uk[/url] for cheap blurays.

BD-ROMs for desktops/laptops are affordable now but the BD-RW's are still at the £100+ point really for most manufactures.

The biggest alternative right now is x264 standard on 720p and 1080p releases usually 1.1gb for a 40minute tv episode to 4-12gb 1080p or 3-6gb 720p films but this requires special equipment like WD HD Player or PopCorn Player hooked up to a TV or a decent computer to play them.

It'll be a good few years before BD Players can play HD.x264 like DVD Players can play XviDs

x264 would usually come in a MKV container. The files can very easily and quickly be converted into a PS3 compliant MPG file using MKV2VOB.

This is how I watch the majority of my HD stuff on the PS3

I wonder if in places like Singapore, Hong Kong and Bali they are just saying "You won DVD" and not "Blu Ray Mista"?
