Default Toshiba Announces 50GB HD DVD Disc

Quote:
Toshiba continues to improve HD DVD storage capacity. At the HD DVD Promotion Group's press conference this evening, the company announced it has developed 50GB triple-layer rewritable and ROM media.

This capacity is up from the company’s previous explorations of a higher-capacity 45GB triple-layer disc. Currently, HD DVD maxes out at a 30GB dual-layer disc.

There goes the much flaunted (by BD fanatics) "space advantage".

Too bad modern Blu Ray players probably won't be able to read them. What an advantage...unusable discs!

You guys realize that 30 GB is more then sufficient for most HD content. 50 GB better still more then you need. 200 GB, whoa that is a lot of space.

Lol, it's so ridiculous. We got 50GB with tripple layer technology! We r0x0r! When Blu-ray had it with 2 layers a year before.

What do people think would be cheaper to produce, 2 or 3 layers?

Yet only working very recently.

You sound a little bitter at the news, btw.

50GB recordable media was available and in shops in Japan in April 06.

Why would I be bitter? It's ridiculous.

It's like team A broke the land speed record in 2006, and team B boasts that they can match team A's record in 2007 or later only with a less efficient vehicle. What is that to boast about?
