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.
How much of an impact does the amount of data in a disc have to you? Comment below.
