    Sony and Panasonic teams up to build 300GB Blu-Ray: The bigger the better.



    In the current world today, a dual layer Blu-ray disc can hold approximately 50GB of data. The next-gen consoles will obviously have the blue-ray features, but it seems that Sony wants to improve beyond today’s technology capabilities.

    Panasonic has recently announced that they are working with Sony to making an optical disc that can reserve up to 300GB of information. They plan to finish the project by the end of 2015.

    With such an upgraded capacity of storage, the technology will be used professionally and should help the work of video editors and archivists.

    Now they just have to make this new technology more appealing to gamers. Hopefully they can introduce these discs to be pre-compatible with with the PS4. With even more advanced titles coming soon, this technology may advance the way we play games in the future.

    No doubt.
    But we will have to wait until 2015.

    Such massive storage means that by that year will be handling massive files.

    It is awesome, but what if your data copied to these kinds of disc's for some reason, can not be copied back off the disc? Do to corruption, or scratches, or ,a bad burn & fails in the middle , just any problem. You lose 300GB in data or a disc. That would suck big time & especially if you have like 10 disc's burned & only a few do this, even 1 or 2 are bad would be 600GB gone. I think it is a big risk & is worse then worrying about a 1/2/3TB going bad / corrupt.

    I will stick with a External ,unless the data i copy to then DISC i have a backup clone then i see no problems with chancing such big data transfers to DISC.. The bigger the DISC the bigger the RISK. If games come on a disc this size we should have ever right to back it up which would take on some computers hours to do..


    A disc this size better to get the BD-RW ,i had lost quite a few DVDs do to errors burning DVD ISO in the past .It happens & were talking a 300GB BD disc turned into trash ,imagine how much they will charge like they did when the DVD DL came out & now would be a BD 300GB will be something ridiculous i bet. If there will be games on them, i would not be surprised if the game disc would cost $80/$90 a game. Great idea but for archiving could be a hazard without a clone ,i personally have crazy amounts of data & would not chance burning important data to a disc of this size.


    Good for technology, but a heart breaker if the data on disc is your only copy & you see a message like this when trying to copy your data off the disc to PC (cyclic redundancy read error). That message can stop your heart when you know it is our only backup.

    I don't see the point...
    Why should i buy a bluray when i can get (i think with a similar price) an hdd that i can write and erase several times and allow a faster access to the data? o.O

    This would be useful only if you are a corporation that need to share petabytes of data on some kind of "protected" storage

    I totally agree with @ZOMBIEKILLAH , imagine transferring only 40gb it takes too much time transferring to an external hard drive. Not to mention if the external HDD supports USB 3.0 already.

    Mine is just a hard drive from my toshiba laptop that i salvaged. 320gb segate with a USB 2.0 enclosure. Man that took a lot of time when i copied the last of us.

    It's not how big it is, its what you do with it

    I guess its good for businesses who require mountains of backups... but its still flawed, as pointed out by @ZOMBIEKILLAH .

    Also (as an example) How many PS3 games even use the full current BD capacity..... a handful... I bet even PS4 game devs wouldnt bother working overtime to try utilize this excessive extra space.

    It would be handy to have, but useless long term imho.

    They aren't creating bigger Blu Rays, they are creating a new type of optical disc.
