Are there blue ray/hd-dvd drives for PC?

If the thing is available, priced reasonably, and does not require a 1000 W power supply it would certainly be a better deal than the PS3/X-360 way.
Anyone knows if the drives are sold separately?

Why would a dvdrive need 1000watt? Its just a disc drive that can use larger dvds. I think I read somewhere that there were a couple brands out, pioneer and I think LG. Ofcourse they're going to be a little pricey aswell since they're new, but I'd recommend not bothering to buy one just yet. I mean we really dont need it. Wait till next year when theres better drives for half the price that wont take 5 hours or whatever to burn a full bluray disc.

yeah wait is the better choice for these drives, most are too expensive, and the speeds aren't even that good for them. like I bought my DVD burner a year after they first came out and I regret it now it takes almost 2 hours to burn with it and I bought a new one and now it takes me 6 mins lol

There are bluray drives for pc and I think a couple hddvd as well as the 360 addon drive that also works with pc's. But all those options are fairly expensive, I'd give it a little bit yet.
