Blu-ray Discs expand to 128GB under new BDXL spec

Maybe it's because of the new 3D hype going around or your one of those individual's who thinks 50GB just isn't enough. If so don't thread, because the Blu-ray Disc Association is rolling out the big guns. Their new Blu-ray XL format has the capability's to hold 128GB (write-once) or 100GB (rewritable). And sorry to all you PS3 users cause you won't be able to take advantage of this new feature seeing how they go up to three or four layers deep and will likely need a very powerful laser. No PS3 update will help either, but home movies can still be compressed fine, and company's who are still using other mediums for archiving are going to love the extra space. And even better new's is the IH-BD discs, which allows 25GB of permanent space and 25GB of rewritable space on the same single layer disc. Both make for the ideal Hi Res storage device for film edited, photography, and for IH-BD there is a consumer version is in the works. Sadly no release date has been announced for the BD-XL so far.
