And so the war starts

Matt Burns

We knew it would happen soon, but man was that quick. Manufactures of optical drives already have out new versions that will read Blu-Ray and HD DVDPioneer released early this week its first volley into the battle with the BRD-101A, capable of producing Blu-Ray disks. NEC returned fire with its first HD DVD drive, the HR-1100A. Both of the drives can do their respective high capacity disks, but unlike the Pioneer, the NEC can read CDs too. Sweet. Both are going to hit the streets around $600.

This is going to be a long war folks.

EDIT: Good catch on the spelling of Blu-Ray.
