Sharp Unveils New/Larger Blu Ray Disc
Sharp unveiled a brand new Blu ray disc today in Japan totaling 100GB of information. The normal Blu ray discs that we use in our Blu ray players, PS3's, and such only total 50GB of data.
Normal Blu ray discs are double layered which allows them to hold the current maximum 50GB of info, these new Sharp Blu rays would introduce a third layer allowing for two times the normal storage.
The downside of these new Blu ray's is that they are not compatible with current-gen Blu ray players, thus you would need to replace your players in order to play them. Looks like this is where movies and games are headed, but not for another couple of years at least.
