Blu-ray discs hold tons of stuff(50 GB) on the same physical space as a cd. That's like frikkin vinyl to Compact Disc! A blu-ray drive, ten discs, and I'm set.

Nah, HD-DVDs are likely to come out ahead. For one thing, Xbox 360 seems to be more popular than PS3, and has an HD-DVD player option instead of Blu-ray. That and Sony, who is producing the Blu-ray discs, isn't allowing porn to be distributed on Blu-ray. Porn was the main reason VHS became the standard instead of the technically superior Beta, so it will probably do the same thing for HD-DVDs.

But I think the difference is that Sony is a much larger organisation that the one that designed Beta video players.

I don't think Sony will be to happy with two disk types going bust (UMD Movie disks [not games] and Blue Ray movies).

Isn't Blue Ray disks cheaper to make but the players more expensive?

I know who the Blue ray disk crams so much on (using a Blue laser to read the data as it has a smaller wavelength compared to red laser). But how does a the HD DVD the Xbox use work?

Sony will make sure they flood the market. After the near Failiure of the UMD they will be predding hard to get the Blue Ray Disks up and running.

I don't really see the point in CD's, DVD'd, HD-DVD's or Blueray disks anymore. You might as well download everything. I always said the best thing to do would be to see a game ready installed on a small external hard-drive so its literally Plug and Play.
