It's just the same crap as the HD DVD jerks who said that BD DL wouldn't work. It's negative propaganda because they fear losing one of their "edges." Which is really stupid, about the only thing BD has ever had that was something they should have been proud of was bandwidth. More data with less compression means possible better picture.
Then again maybe the reason some have a problem with 51GB discs is that he knows that Disney stated that "storage," was the primary reason they were sticking to BD only, and that if BD loses that edge then Disney would have no reason to not go neutral.
Officially we won't know anything until CES.
