Sony to Buy Gracenote

Espen Skoglund Re:ps3 drive slower than standard DVD drive (146 comments)

Im annoyed hearing how the PS3s 2x speed BD drive is slower than the far cheaper Xbox 360 DVD drive. Its about 9MB per second vs the Xbox's 15MB, basically half the speed! For things like loading times, this is not a good thing.
True. This is a bit annoying. The 2x BD driver in the PS3 is slower (72Mbps) than the 12x DVD driver in XBox360 (66--22Mbps) for the most part of the disc.
