TDK eyes early release of 200 GB disc

TDK Corp. is aiming for an early launch of a six-layered write-once 200 gigabyte optical disc it has developed recently.

The disc, compatible with the Blu-ray Disc format developed by a consortium led by Sony Corp., is on display at the five-day CEATEC Japan 2006 electronics exhibition being held at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, east of Tokyo, through Saturday.

TDK hopes to commercialize the disc as early as possible after obtaining certification from the Blu-ray Disc Association.

but doesnt make great deal of difference now...
obviously games would not use it and movies can do with 50gb now...
200gb could be handy for tv series.....

PS3Fan you really have no common sense.

This is really dumb its pretty much hype to get people to think that this is a format with endless possibilties and its really needed when its not Sony said it them selve that they doubt in the future we will be even using disc formats but yet they backing this like its no tommorow and totally contradicting(sp?) themselves

whatever ps3fan, we know why you have 2 bubbles, probably 1 soon.

HD dvd and blu ray are almost obsolete already as they are now talking about terabytes of storage on a CD thanks to a new laser technology, that is going to be commercially ready next year.

Wicked, so people can buy the TB-CD add-on for their 360?
