And now there are three? According to reports today from The New York Times, Time Warner will be showing a new disc called Total HD at the upcoming CES trade show in Las Vegas that will host both Blu-ray and HD DVD content on a single disc. The move comes as Blu-ray and HD DVD are fighting a bitter format war the likes we haven’t seen since VHS versus Beta. The new disc is slated to be more expensive than a traditional DVD release of a movie and can play on HD DVD players including the external drive of a Microsoft Xbox 360 game system or Blu-ray players including the hard-to-find Sony Playstation 3.

As the war between Blu-ray and HD DVD battles on, Warner patented the all-in-one disc, containing a movie both in Blu-ray and HD DVD as well as Standard DVD. Just recently New Medium Enterprises announced that they have actually developed a technology that is capable of accomplishing this feat. However, the fees involved with the creation of these combo discs could very well hinder their production. These new discs would require licensing fees for three different versions of a film as well as most likely requiring the consumer to purchase yet another player, not in existence, to play the multi-layered discs. You may have heard of New Medium Enterprises when they announced early this year that they developed a 20-layer DVD that is capable of storing 100GB of data and prices of the discs and players are comparable to current DVDs.
