    Will you still be able to use 4.7 gb dvdr's with dvd-dl burners when they come out. Because most ps2 games are under 4.7 gb and I'll still want to use those dvd-r for games instead of wasting like another 4 gigs if I were to use a 8.5 gb dvdr.

    I am still gonna wanna have the dvd-dl burner for movies though, so I can have full quality with menus and extras. So will Dvd-Dl writers be able to support 4.7 dvdr's?

    Yes. Currently Sony has the DRU-700 out and it is a Dual format DVD+/-R5 burner along with support for DVD+R9.

    Icemonkey is correct, I own the Sony DRU-700A - here are the media specs:
    DVD+R Double Layer: 2.4X ¹ max.
    DVD-R: 1X, 2X, 4X, 8X (ZCLV) ³ max.
    DVD-RW: 1X, 2X, 4X ³ max.
    DVD+R: 2.4X, 4X ², 8X (ZCLV) ³ max.
    DVD+RW: 2.4X, 4X ² max.

    CD-RW: 4XCLV, 10X, 16X, 24X ZCLV ³ max.

    ¹Double Layer DVD+R media required

    If you have DVD X Copy Gold or Platinum, you can get all the extras on one 4x DVD+ Disc (Providing it is all on one disc, and only for your DVD's you own, it is illegal to copy from a rental or borrowed.)
