Now here's a rate of progress we could get used to. Nary a month after Pioneer trumpeted a 400GB Blu-ray Disc, out pops another press release from the firm boasting about a 500 gigger with a score of layers. Based on research at its Tokyo headquarters, specifications have been drafted for an incredibly capacious 500GB BD. Granted, this very company already had plans for a 500GB optical disc nearly four years ago, but there's no time like the present to make this stuff a reality, right?

Best of all, the technique used by Pioneer is expected to be backward compatible with existing Blu-ray gear since the specs and lenses required for pickup are identical. The prototype is read-only for the moment but R&D's on it so let's give them some time to work it out.

Looks like blu ray will last for a while now then
could scrap hard drives and have blu rays as the storage

I mena half a terrabyte is more than enough

As long as it works with existing players, then it will be here to stay for a while.

Well when UHD Tvs (ultra high def) become mainstream you will need at least 500gb for the fim

Well I think they should start using these high capacity discs and use higher res transfers and uncompressed audio now (well to the point where it fit to the 500gb). But they wont because it would be better business for them to rerelease all the films again in the higher transfers at a later date.

15 years is a lifetime in computing terms. you cannot possibly dream of what will be available in the year 2023.

Half a terrabyte is more than enough? Who are you kidding.
Tell that to the people who had never heard of a gigabyte not so many years ago. For them 128 meg would have been hard to fill.
