Daetrin writes "GameSpot has reported an announcement by Sony that the PlayStation 3 will use Blu-Ray technology, a next-generation optical disc format which 'can hold 25GB on a single layer and 50GB on the dual-layer discs', as many people have been speculating. What Sony hasn't said for sure is whether the PS3 will be backwards compatible with DVD movies and PS2 games. However, they indicated that they will reveal more details about the PlayStation 3 at a premiere in Japan on March 31st next year. (And, if nothing else, there will certainly be plenty of rumors before then.)"http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/08/05/1554219

50GB on a disc? thats pretty impressive. going to have some good looking games on that thing.
Massive games I hope. 50gb on a disc is pretty amazing. Cant wait to get my PS3... *sets up a tent outside a store to wait for the next year or two*
