Pioneer is exhibiting its super multi-layer read-only optical disc which features 16 separate layers on a single side with 25GB storage capacity on each layer for a total capacity of 400GB at the IT Month fair taking place in Taipei.
" and therefore the Pioneer discs can be read on BD players, the company said. " It is hence a 400 gig BD disc PS3 is a full future proof console 1 TERABYE blu ray in 2013 Oooo @kratos below The discs are much cheaper to produce and is made from the very same BLU RAY tech. These discs are 10nm based (10x cheaper to produce) and is COMPATIBLE with ALL blu ray players I repeat 100% COMPATIBLE with all BLU RAY players (even the OLDEST ONES)
For getting in before all the blu-ray is dead posts.
I can see myself getting a BD drive for my PC in the not to distant future. Edit: Im waiting for a BD burner you be able to burn at least dual layered 50 GB BD's and have the capability to read those 400 GB BD's I guess if they penetrate the market.
for the prices to reach $100 myself before I slap one in the ol PC.
But it says read only. Are they making a burner for it too? I think 400GB is overkill for movies but it would be nice to have an optical disc I can burn that much data to. A 100GB BD is enough really.
Aww why did you post this up so quickly? I was hoping to read some comments based on just the title of the article that speculates how BD is outdated.
Why will Blu Ray wait so long to get a terabyte storage in 2013, when TeraDisk will be available in 2010 and it is a a Dvd 1.2mm with 200 layers? And the bad thing is the Dvd will still be half the price of blu ray.
This disc will be awesome for backing up my PC and PS3 hardrives and movie collections. If they made a game with this disc it would be crazy. 1000 hour game and would cost big time to make.
I think it's safe to say Blu-ray will be around for a while now! It would be almost pointless for anyone to come out with anything else for at least 5 years minimum after this hits. @Somekindofmike... With Kojima being Kojima, he will probably still say that is not enough space...lol! Just kidding... Don't take a joke so seriously...
lol, I agree 100% with you, Kijima would find a way to fill even a 1TB disk just to say that it's not enough space to get more publicity! Didn't anybody tell him that when consumers buy a game they don't care how many GB's on a disk it fills, all they care about is how good the game is!! I remember back in the day on the megadrive when sometimes they put on the front cover of the packaging "24MEGA BYTES" (or whatever figure it was) if that is the best selling point of the game, then I'd be worried about buying that game!
I came... Future proof the PS3 is..
I agree with you. I have the ps3 and a stand alone player. But the ONLY reason I don't have a pc blu ray yet is because I too am awaiting the burners. Once the burners become available, then I'll have blu ray pc drives
with that much space they can put everything as in everything in it. like for example, if we have that technology right now the movie darknight on bluray can have a lot of extras like a full batman game related to the movie and they can even put batman begins in it too and a ton of features and extras or if it is a naruto series, they can put the entire 500 episodes in one disc. man oh man! being a ps3 owner keeps getting better and better. wooot! i'm loving it!
You can put entire game series on these disc. Entire tv series and movies all on one disc!!! God I can't wait!!!
because its clear.
Wrong. 1TB PS3 in 2009!
"and therefore the Pioneer discs can be read on BD players, the company said. " 400 gig Blu Ray for u @foxbot below Bitter tears the disc is made from the same Blu Ray tech and is compatible with ALL BLU RAY players see other articles on this It is 100% compatible with BLU RAY 100% -----u heard that Even the oldest Blu Ray players can read it read the article XBot and his sucky DVD 9 games
it says "can" though, and not that it will. The earliest blu ray players arent compatible with todays blu ray standards. By 2013 your obviously going to be needing a new blu ray player that can handle the standards.
"The technology of the super multi-layer read-only disc is based on Blu-ray Disc (BD) with a breakthrough in material of reflective layers, according to Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan. The specifications of the pick-up head (PUH) of the disc is the same as those for the PUH of blank BD discs, and therefore the Pioneer discs can be read on BD players, the company said." I guess Kojima Can't complain anymore about Disc space if his next game is a PS3 exclusive. o_0
It is a blu Ray disc Please be sure of that so we might be seeing R3 in that 400 gig Blu Ray Awesome news for SONY also the disc is 14/10nm and hence much cheaper than BLU RAY to produce
Think of how much longer Kojima's cut scenes are going to be in MGS5 with a 400GB disk! :) Don't hurt me, I love the MGS series, and it wouldn't be the same without the cinematic cut scenes, but I do wish he'd cut back a bit in some places. With the PS3 using 400GB BD disks to 360s 9GB DVD then the PS3 could potentially have a huge advantage. but the key word is potential. so far not much has really used the potential of the 50Gb BluRay disks to really stand out from what the 360 can do. & to the guy who said 400GB was overkill, you are very short sighted, I bet when you bought yours first PC you thought to yourself "wow 10 mega byte hard drive, I will never be able to fill this bad boy" Think of the possibility of entire tv series on one disk in HD. and i'll be first in line for Star Wars in HD and at this rate it could be all on one disk.
Yo, Imagine the game collections they could make with that space. The Full Final Fantasy collection could fit on one disc. That's FF1 - FF13 vs.
Now that's what I call future-proof!
Any ever doubted that PS3 was not a FULL FUTURE PROOF console??? Ur doubts end there PS3 will give x360 the finishing blow in 2009 for sure @foxbot below PS3 will be around for another 6/7 years atleast U heard me..atleast for x360 08 is the last year
it isn't, space doesn't make a great game, its about the horsepower of the engine. By 2013 the new wave of consoles will arrive, those will make the current line of consoles look like piss.
Well, if the 360's lifespan does indeed end this year then the 720 will definitely eliminate the Ps3. So, you'd better hope it isn't.
Now their is no excuse for developers to cut corners and shaft gamers on DLC!
You are assuming that the reason why developer create DLC is because it does not fit on a disc instead of that they want to make more money later. Fallout3 DLC is an example of this.
For a variety of reasons spanning over a few games, SCIV being one of them (I'm sure many remember that) As well as quite a few other games [other than that one I can't remember off the top of my head, 2 AM here.] Mainly when I say "Shaft" I'm talking about DLC "things" that should have been in the game in the first place, refer to SCIV. Not to be confused with developers adding extra songs, (As seen in RB2 as well as GH:WT). [Apologies, not as coherent as I would be if the sun were up and if I had ample amount of sleep.]
I agree with Lokmessier and Bladestar on this one.The SCIV should have been on the discs from day one while I agree with Bladestar that DLC is good as long as its lengthy and worthwhile like the Fallout 3 DLC
Examples would be Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and to counter that I say Grand Theft Auto 4 with the downloadable content on the XBOX 360 console. Both games support both ideas.
Both are right.
yea, first time ive actually agreed with you blade lol.
Agree with your second statement there lokmessier. Just because some greedy publisher nickels and dimes it's own customers doesn't mean Digital Distribution is flawed. I'm pretty sure most of the content that became available for SCIV was already on the disk ( In other words you already paid for it) and Namco forced users to pay to unlock it which is of course BS. One reason i never bought the game.
