- The path to practical light-source in next-generation large-capacity optical disc storage & for nano-fabrication -
3 words - Sony make.believe
Sony develop and innovate. Others buy out companies for their tech and research. I'm talking about you Kinect aka Zcam
Well buying the companies out too can work the same way, its adding on to your company, BUT the major difference is tho Sony is researching, is MS? But this is quite awesome but unfortunately we wont see this in our household for quite some time, well as mainstream.
This news is the same as the one here: http://n4g.com/news/568528/... I don't care anyway, SONY Pushing the boundaries and Innovating like they do since log ago, keep up the great work... Sony, you make and we believe
Now get to making that laser GUN.
Sony, the only true innovators in the industry.
i'm happy that MS choose DD. Next gen will not have compromised 3rd party exclusives. SONY wins. Others can enjoy their unlimited hours downloading
for UV-Ray with a bashillionz a dem giggabeets!
can someone translate this for me...i don't understand the advantages this brings compared to what we have now besides how it said it will make the light box smaller. Was anything else really mentioned? I didnt understand a lot of it haha
"that are 100 times that of the world's current highest levels." that^ is all you need to know. woooh!! buying day one! ; )
Shanked you. >_<
Basically this is going to expand the capacity of discs in the magnitude of 200 times while maintaining ultra high read rates.. This all basically means blu-ray on steroids.. You know how the install issue on ps3 had alot to do with the blu ray drive not reading very fast? Well this means more space with drive speeds higher then that of anything that currently exists... On another note.Sony truly does drive us forward as a species.. I love it..
I guess I'm the only one that couldn't read that whole article...I didn't know what the hell was going on. Only that it's faster? and that it makes boxes smaller?
Sony is still trying to hold on to the past. People don't want any more discs or any kind of physical media. They have blu-ray and nobody wants that or even uses that disc space...lol. Necessity is the mother of all invention. There is no need for discs any more. You can have a wall covered with discs or a little black box in the corner with everything stored and organized. Sony doesn't get it, Sony fanboys don't get it. Sony is going down in flames. In 10 years, Sony may not even be here. It will be broken up into 10 different companies. BTW...the university is doing the work, Sony just paying a research grant hoping to lock onto another patent to make some money. Unfortunately, they are wasting there money. Video games for example will be stored on some server somewhere and when you want to play, set up your account, and log in. You get a code and a password. That's it, a couple presses of the key pad and your gaming. You'll pay a monthly " maintenance " fee to keep all your games and DLC there. Like a bank, access anytime you want. Discs and ALL physical media are slowly disappearing, same way money is...credits, debits, and cashless. No more piracy, used games, consoles...anything. The Internet is becoming the alpha and the omega of all things in society. All future TV's will have access to the Internet ( already here ) and will include massive built in storage capabilities. Who will want discs at that point???. Go to a friends house and log in. Go anywhere there is electricity and a monitor and your gaming and interacting. Cell phones are a gateway tech for all of this. They say the next gen phones coming out soon will run Unreal three...LOL. BTW...there will be a record of every transaction, conversation and everything you do recorded and stored somewhere...it's already here if you take the time to look.
Final proof that THIS will always be N4360G. XD
I still want a physical format not sure what crawled in your butt and took over you weak mind cez but it's the same song and dance from you and your minions that hate on Sony. Cloud storage is at very least two gens ahead of us, even at that time the old cronies like myself and millions of others like to COLLECT a median that we can hold in our hands. It's time for you to get the grey matter between your ears examined.
I like to have my media in a physical format, and as you can see I'm not the only one. I wouldn't want all my media floating on the internet, which is not the most secure place for me to keep important files. Why do you think that some companies keep the computers with their back up files disconnected from the internet? The web is a very insecure place to be storing stuff, and everyday I see piracy over the web getting bigger and bigger.. (Torrents anyone?) Where do you think people that own modded xbox units get their downloaded games? Oh and don't give me the "M$ is banning those units" crap, because I have friends that are playing on modded xbox right now. So how is the internet the way to protect from copyright infringement? When it's actually becoming the very source for acquiring pirated media?
Not yet. Small music files yes, not 20+ GB games.
People will always need a physical medium for transportation, security and peace of mind. Always. That's why.
Oh cez...should it be, cez of stupidity? Let me quote your simple valid line. " In 10 years" You may be dead, so may everyone here lol, in 10 years sony can take over digital download or does microsoft own that? in ten years ps4 will destroy your little world called xbox troll, you dont get it do you, Sony is the technology itself, microsoft is...well microsoft...microsoft...micro, who the fck know! so whatever with you big trolling reply! take a disagree here.
When Microsoft's the one that won't let go of DVD9?
Cez you are wrong for a number of reasons, let me enlighten you 1. As stated above people prefer a physical copy of their games. 2. What if the internet is down or the cloud server is being maintainanced? No gaming. 3. Brick and mortar stores will all be put out of buisness and I believe there are laws that protect them in this regard. 4. It's is insanely expensive to host a cloud gaming server system which means it will be costly for the end user. 5. Everyone in the country will have to have access to high bandwidth internet before this will take off. Alot of gamers live in remote areas with only dial up connections and there's no telling how long it will take for the infrastructure to catch up with society. As you can gather from the above answers physical media will likely be a part of our existence for some time to come, It won't just "happen" , it will be a slow integration which will take years.
for the true believers here in N4G... guys, M$ has really screwed up many fantrolls line of thinking. they don't even adhere to logic, reason and progress while their so called 'knowledge' are good for a laugh every now and then but never ever try to reason with them guys, where DRM failed, high capacity optical media like the blu-ray disc is Sony's present solution to piracy and publishers will support this trend for many years to come. a vast majority of countries in the world are not tech savvy as many DD fantrolls here in the internet would like them to be.
Your childish nonsense ramblings are your own delusions, don't talk as if you speak for anyone but yourself. Fortunately the market proves trolls like you are the minority.
Bloody well said, dude.
@cez of rage - People like to own ther media on phyical discs, not have to basically rent it. Which is what Digital downloads ends up being. Clouds will be no different, you'll never actually own the media, just have access to it for a fee.
ah damn i was thinking light sabre lol
same here lol how cool would it be to have a sony light sabre It only does "weapons"
GT6 will be real life. Seriously at this point Sony is just competing with itself.
It seems like they always have been, not saying they don't have good competition i just don't think they really care about them.
you must need bubbles
HVD and V-ray are going to be fighting it out just a couple of years from now. Get your popcorn ready.
Blu-Ray is actually violet, same thing shown here I think this article is showing like a thinner beam or something
Bye bye Microsoft. Dont let the door hit you where the good lord split you. Oh and make sure you take your obsolete dvd 9's with you.
Really? Was that necessary? MS does there own thing, software, Sony has been always a hardware. The only thing they are really competing in is consoles. Right now this technology will probably be well enough to be used in both new consoles for the future generation to come.
Not if it uses java. Bluray uses java, and Sun has an injunction against Microsoft prohibiting them from using Java natively. This means they cannot use it in an operating system. That's why you have to download the plugin from java on your windows 7. Microsoft is not allowed to touch it.That's why Microsoft isn't licensing it.(bluray) Word is, if Microsoft cant find a digital distribution model that generates profit, and soon, the next xbox is gonna be canned. What format could it possibly use for it's next gen system besides bluray?
Microsoft is obviously the best company around. They are the geniuses that brought us window vista, that one OS that never failed us. They are the innovators that brought us the 'Zune.' They are the masterminds that brought us the xbox 360, the most solid and reliable system available. They are the gods that brought us the masterpiece which is 'MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER.' On second thought I'll stick with google, sony, linux, nintendo and my custom built PC.
Can someone dumb it down for me and help me understand all that info...
tech that not even the engineers know what its for. By the time they figure it out some other crazy shit will take its place and you will have to buy it as you did the first iteration.
here's a graph of a comparison between bluray and this laser. Think of it as information on a disc. The dots represent data on a disc. bluray: . . . . . . . . . . . . new laser: .............................. .............................. . . .. basically more data, less space ,faster reading of data,all done by speeding up and reducing the size of the laser.
Helpful, thank you!
That'll help me do.... stuff?
What is it for though ?
reading and writing of data on an optical disc
Oh ok thank you.
In development now.
Next iteration of the playstation x3
According to the info in the source-link, They're using Pylons to power the solid state lasers, which in itself is impressive. http://pix.motivatedphotos....
First its blue-violet ultrafast pulsed semiconductor laser's, next their building mechs and warring it out in a post apocalyptic world.
Ps4 only does post apocolyptic mech battles.. FTW! *Not a stab at sony! It was the first thing that came to mind and I laughed so dont slaughter me please*
This has nothing to do with gaming. I mean really. "Omigod, Sony bes company yues PS4 baby lazeerrrs"
I understand that Sony operates tons of R&D projects but why are all the articles approved for N4G? A lot of the more recent ones don't even pertain to gaming in any way. I'm not mad about it, I just don't understand it. Still, Sony as a company is a gem in the tech world because they push themselves to create new things beyond our imagination. They don't worry about the safe, as they're willing to commit resources and time to develop tomorrow's technology. Kudos to them!
Sony always is a innovator of new tech advances. Sure the corporate big wigs made some stupid mistakes by thinking consumers would just buy any shit they put out like apple (ipad, macbook air), but they do have some of the best bleeding edge tech engineers out there.
THIS is where you're gonna' get your future 5TB discs to read properly.
It sounds like it cuts the pit size of Blu-ray in half and that doubles the capacity. It also sounds faster and more precise in read speeds. This doesn't sound like something that will create a 5TB disc unless they have something else to pair it with. But I don't see how you ask people to start another format anytime soon when they haven't adopted blu-ray in huge numbers. But it does set up Sony for 4k video.
It says the increase in disc capacity is 20 times. 1TB. But no gaming system would need this. Unless people want $100 games in the US. But in order not to kill Blu-ray they would have to wait until 2016 or later.
So two years for first products on market, and 2016 seems like a reasonable date to launch the product to mass market, if all goes smoothly, judging by lifetime of previous massmarket optical medias. CD's had a slow start, it were invented early around 1980. But didn't really take off for computers until Playstation came around in 1994, because cartridges and disks had so far been 'good enough'. Things quickened up when a big hardware-company entered the console-buisness tough. DVD format were finalised around 1995, I think. Playstation 2 introduced it to mass market and consoles, 5 years later (2000). Most people said complained that it were too expensive because of the DVD-format, since CD's are actually good enough. The first Bluray-prototypes (DVR-Blue) were shown in october 2000. In 2003 the first Bluray-device were on the market. And in 2006 it became a mass-market product with PS3. Most people complained that it were too expensive because of the bluray-format, since DVD's are good enough. Wouldn't suprise me if we see the same story in 5 years. :-/
.................. . exactly 10 years when PS3 will have launched. . PS4 coming 2016? . ..................
I wonder how much power that thing uses?
Okay... Scary... innovative... awesome.
Not a tech head. Does this mean a kind of format in the works? Can it be appied to gaming? If so between the full 3D projection thing they showed, the disc that that is 20 times the storage size of bluray with this laser to read it, I can see why Sony isn't ready for a new console yet. When they take the time to fully research all this new tech and figure out how to apply it to the PS4 and their other devices it will blow the competition away. Far far away
I GUESS that the PS4 will still use an optic Midia after reading that article :) Buying games via download will be a cool deal but the way the tec is going it still can be complicated to dl a 500G size game when it is more simple to buy it in a disc. Am I wrong ?
This means that sony could create games terabytes in size! Think about how much coding that is!! If they perfect this technology and release it soon via new console their wont be a future for Microsoft and nintendo will have to divert to only handhelds.
Not really. You can't benefit from storage alone. I mean it'd provide a significant advantage... similar to the 8gb vs 60gb, DVD vs BR situation now. XBOX and Wii have done fine with lesser storage spaces. Of course this will be a significant advantage. Random thought: It is kind of sad that some of the blurays I use on my PS3. Have larger capacities than my PS3s HDD...
.................. . It's 6.8 vs. 50 GB now . ..................
