The unit will be released in the United States in early 2007. Details will be provided at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held January 8–11 in Las Vegas.

Hopefully this will stop the Betamax vs VHS fight like many have been predicting.
personally I feel this was a pretty obvious step, hell it wouldnt be that hard to have two lasers in the devices, so surely this will be the easiest fix.Details to be announced at CES.
