Sony and Panasonic have unveiled their plans for Blu-Ray's replacement: an optical disc that can hold at least 300GB gigabytes of data (six times more than the maximum capacity of a current Blu-Ray). The new storage medium will apparently roll out next year, primarily designed for 4K ultra-high-definition films and the movie market. [via the BBC]
Gaming applications haven't yet been discussed, though it's likely that Sony will look to beef up digital distribution going forward, at least until there's a sizeable 4K install base. We'll keep you posted.
