    That's cool, but I guess this will be used in movies/games only? Since pretty much nobody backs up info on disc anymore.

    Things like this combined with H.265 makes me excited for the future.

    These aren't those so-called hologram video discs I've heard so much about, are they?

    Anime will be supporting 4K once those are in circulation of course that will make importing those more expensive.

    I'm curious abut the region coding, they should stick to the BD standard so I don't have get a region 0 player like I did with DVD.

    Probably yeah on the home backup side. Still it's useful to make hard copies of larger servers every once in a while. Even today, it's possible to make bigger hickups (latest was my Uni's mail list server that broke and their backup was from a year ago, even with a RAID server <__<). In other words, business side (especially smaller servers).

    Alas, 300 GB is relatively easy to get combined by raw 1080p (4k in the future?) video and raw images. Discs > HDDs > Flash in terms of reliability. :P

    BD is region coded, but most are coded by default for all regions. Hopefully they just get rid of the region coding since there is pretty much no technical reason for it any more. Not to mention the success of the relatively region free BDs!

    And yet I bet with all that space, they will still only put 3 episodes of an anime on one disk and charge 50$ for it.

    lol

    but i doubt they'll do that, it'll be the same 2 episode formula with 4K capability and an increase to around $120 per volume.

    This thing must be absolutely flooded with data redundancy and CRC's. A single scratch on one of these would obliterate a lot of data.
