Blu-ray Production Costs Questioned

By Dave

But in at least one early test, according to a top manufacturing executive who asked to remain anonymous, a manufacturing line for HD DVD discs produced nearly twice as many usable discs as a similar line pumping out the Blu-ray format, over the same period of time. That translates into higher costs for Blu-ray producers. Moreover, component costs for Blu-ray can be nearly double HD DVD costs, because elements are still hard to find, the executive said.

I really don’t know what to say on that except if the manufacturing gets better (which it usually does), then won’t that reduce the cost of a HD DVD disc to below the cost of Blu-ray, or by that time will Blu-ray costs go down thanks to being in the PS3?
