    That conclusion from that chart seems like a pretty big stretch.

    as the ps3 will play blu-ray movies,it has to be 1.5x minimum.

    my money is on 2x.

    edit:54mbps in the pic *is* 1.5x

    edit2:looking at that pic again,it *confirms* the ps3 will be 2x because the offical spec's state bd-r/bd-re compatability.
    which the pic show to be 2x....

    So Pioneer is now the company to sell PS3? :shock:
    My prediction is 4x.

    So are we taking this as comfirmation that the PS3 has a 2x Blu-Ray drive?

    Edit: Just because the disc can be run at 4x, doesn't mean the drive will be faster than 2x.

    I don't even think 1x drives exist? It'll probably be a 2x, but there's nothing here to suggest anything..

    4x would be perfect, but I think it will be x2.

    It doesn't *confirm* anything of the sort. At most you might infer the minimum speed the drive can be is 2x; in reality it could turn out to be faster than that.

    Some people really need to calm down, I think. :) Official confirmation of all these little details will come sooner or later. E3 isn't too far off now...

    I remember people here were adamant that it would be 1x and destroy loadtimes. Ahhh, goodtimes.

    2x puts it between 12x min-max, so 2x is equivalent to X360. Thats where I believe it'll be.


    As for this slide, who knows? If we take it at a glance, games will require 30gb+.

    Actually no. A 2X's Blue Ray drive is not equivalent to a 12X's DVD drive. To just slightly be fasterthan a 12X DVD drive a 4X's blueRay drive would be needed.

    Ben:
    I assume you don't consider that a CAV 12x DVDROM wouldn't be anywhere near 12x speed reading from the middle/inner part of the disc?
