Maneuvering in format wars reaches China.
Meet a 51GB HD DVD and a new hi-def disc format from China, which promises to be cheaper than the other fomats but still offer full 1080p picture quality

If 50GB Blu-ray discs strike you as a bit pokey, you'll probably want to invest in Pioneer's new optical storage medium, which has 16 layers and can store up to 400GB
With the world's largest population backing, the defunct Toshiba-led format will undoubtedly have high hopes for a comeback.
