Yes. There is no other option... even Wii U uses Blu-ray.


Er, are you being serious?  Sometimes sarcasm is lost on the internet...

I think its pretty obvious they won't be using DVD. There is no reason to since Blu-Ray drives will be much faster than they were back in 2006 and there will even be 100gig discs available if needed..

I don't think they won't be using a proprietary format like Nintendo either so Blu-Ray is the safest guess.

the wii u doesn't use Blu rays the same way the Wii doesn't use DVD disks....  You'll find burning a wii game to a dvdr works just fine in a wii tho oddly enough.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Of course it needs it lmfao. We've already seen all the big games this gen seperate their multiplayer onto a different DVD.

I hope not...Can't stand blu ray films (unless it's animation). I don't see the attraction of removing a film's texture and making it look like a cheap daytime soap opera.
I'm guessing the hard drive will be huge enough to allow for the option of direct downloading more than just a few games/movies so physical discs will be less of an option for me.



Playing: Borderlands(great co-op,HUGE amount of content),Too Human(better late than never lol),Saints Row 3(Penetrator ftw),Minecraft 360,Harry Potter Lego. 

Patiently waiting for:  Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2

I would hope so

The denial is strong with this one!



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

It would be a huge mistake to not use blu ray IMO

Out of all arguments against blu-ray this is the most misinformed I've ever read, bravo.
