Hitachi-LG Brings Blu-ray and HD DVD Together in Combo Drive

Considering they had the first 4x Blu-ray burner, we're not too shocked Hitachi-LG is also claiming dibs on the first combo Blu-ray/HD DVD drive for your PC. The wonderfully named GGW-H10N Super Multi Blue will playback, read, and record single and dual-layer Blu-ray discs (at 4x or 3.5x) and it'll also have the skills to playback HD DVDs. Think of it as a BH100 for your PC. Here's the catch, when the drive hits shelves in May it'll go for $1,200, which is a little too rich for our blood.
