AD Blu-Ray Part Deux

On March 10th Sony released their newest product for personal and professional use:  the  “Archival Disc.” Sony collaborated with Panasonic to create the newest Blu-Ray, expanding the digital data storage, going into the not too distant future. Sony explained that:

“Both Sony and Panasonic aim to launch systems with a recording capacity of 300 GB per disc from summer 2015, onwards. In addition, both companies plan to leverage their respective technologies to further expand the recording capacity per disc to 500 GB and 1 TB.” 

Whoa 1TB this must be meant for the influx of 4k Televisions soon to rush into our living rooms. We all see the writings on the wall and its great to see that Sony, while going through a lot of company wide restructuring, are keeping a eye on future markets.

Here are some specs and charts provided by Sony via their website for all our Tech Heads:

About - Born on Halloween of the year 1980 (Seriously true story) I consider myself a "Hardcore Gamer" whatever that phrase means right now to you youngsters.I have been playing console games since 1985 with Atari 2600 then my very own NES. I have went through the gauntlet of these so called console wars and at this point I could care less on what systems most people like. We all have our personal likes I like games thats it thats is my solace. I hail from the DC, Maryland area of the globe but, I have traveled many places in my lifetime. Regardless of all that I have been a romancer of all things technology and artistry of all types. In my writings you might find me talking about many things though, mainly gaming but, not limited to that subject. Enjoy yourselves while you're here and please make sure you interact with our lovely staff. -Deuces, NoirZillaGamer (NZG)
