I just read this over on IGN:
IGN: Pioneer Debuts 400GB Disc
Wonder if this is going to be vaporware or if it will actually come to fruition. Perhaps as storage-media only? Otherwise that should be enough room to have lossless video!
Lossless video? You'll probably need another order magnitude increase for that.
Still... pretty cool though I doubt it'll ever be used much, if at all, for movies -- long running TV shows maybe...
I'm guessing bandwidth would be a bigger problem for lossless video.
So, we believe this, but not 51GB HD-DVDs?
Where's my Duke Nukem Forever?
Let's not go completely crazy, now! Some things will always be vaporware!
(I stopped waiting for DK4 in 1998 when Half Life came out.)
I suppose the difference in credibility and thus believability is due to the fact that the Blu-Ray group has no reason to lie now, having already won the HD format war. While with HD-DVD it was important for them to try and play down the 50GB advantage that Blu-Ray had over it.
I read from pcmag that curantly blu-ray is unable to do double layers. so the 50 gig disk is hype at this point & so is the 400 gig & what i hear is 1 terabyte by 2010. HD-DVD on the other hand could easily do a triple layer holding 45 gigs. So Why again did blu win?
I'm betting on HD-downloads.
Huh?! Studios have been using 50G dual layer discs for some time now. Something is not computing here. How old was that magazine?
You've been had.
To each their own I suppose. Although I'd suggest you make yourself a little better informed before making your HT decisions.
