Miniature Blu-ray Discs Announced

A Blu-ray's disc's full 50GB capacity may be rarely used for movie releases, but the density of data that can be packed onto the discs means that smaller incarnations can still store useful amounts of data. Verbatim launched the very first Mini Blu-ray Recordable/Rewritable discs on Thursday, which measure only three inches across but can carry 7.5GB of data.

AznSniper3945d ago

yea i was thinkin about that.....the introduction of mini blu-ray discs can probably mean psp2 will use it

drtysouf213945d ago

this could turn out to be the format for PSP 2.

VirusE3945d ago

But umd is sooooo great as every psp owner will tell you, why would we want to change.....

ThaGeNeCySt3945d ago

because with every generation that passes, a new format MUST be used, no matter what

Marceles3945d ago

lol @ VirusE...i smelled the sarcasm

VirusE3945d ago (Edited 3945d ago )

I love Sony products but I just hate the constant proprietary formats.

ThaGeNeCySt maybe if you subscribe to the Sony corporate news letter

VirusE3945d ago

Right on! My brain is running slow today, forgive me

AznSniper3945d ago

prob psp2 will allow u to play umd and mini blu-ray disc

ISay3945d ago

if the psp 2 had a mini blue ray conceivably you could take that disc and put it directly into any blu ray player meanining blue ray movies would go small to accommodate both formats

great a psp with a cell and blu ray disk should work well

ItsDubC3945d ago

I question the cell's power efficiency for handheld use but hey, crazier things have happened.

VirusE3945d ago (Edited 3945d ago )

Good point dub, the cell is a monster chip and needs tons of power. It would tear some batteries apart! Give it 5 years and then we can talk.

a single word. MiniCell. A two spu single core system for cellphones. Well at least that was the intention of that variation of cell. I hear they are still working on the project but who knows how much progress they've made. They were moving to 45nanometer technology in early 2008.

this is pretty stupid and useless. I don't have/want to say anymore on this subject.

Fux4Bux3945d ago

Hmmm first step towards PSP2 and an upgraded UMD I guess. Doubt we'll see that for a couple years though.
