A couple of paragraphs from the article:

Richard Leadbetter, Director of Digital Foundry Ltd, says, ‘The fact of the matter is we have high definition video games out there in the here and now, with no playback format capable of showing them at their best. Digital Foundry’s unique hybrid disk technology allows for next gen game video to run in native HD on any recent PC, or on Xbox 360 via the Media Centre connection, while at the same time offering a brilliant picture on any DVD player, and even the PS2.’

As the hybrid disk cleverly exploits both the DVD-Video and DVD-ROM specifications, it is also cheap to manufacture - masters can be supplied to the client’s current DVD duplicator of choice. Up to 40 minutes of high definition video can be in-cluded on a standard single-layer DVD.


i checked back a few pages and didnt see this up. this definatly sounds like good news to those still worried about the 360 being at a disadvantage because it is using DVD-9.
