TeraDisc kills Blu-Ray and HD-DVD

1 min read

Just before I start getting hate mail about being a HD-DVD fanboy, can anyone be a fanboy of a disc format?, I thought I would post about the new TeraDisc that has been demonstrated to electronics firms…

Two very important facts about the TeraDisc. 

  1. It can store (currently) about 1TB of data. That is 950GB more than Blu-Ray
  2. It has been patented already so we shouldn’t have a second format war.

It is expected that the first commercial discs will start to arrive in 2009/2010…

About 2 years before the next round of consoles is to be expected which also means that Blu-Ray and HD-DVD can be expected to have a commercial lifespan of 3-4 years at the most… Who here is willing to replace their entire DVD collection only to have it obsolete again in 3 years? Yeah me neither… 

Maybe we should start a website protesting against both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray… I see no reason at all to invest in either format in the near or medium term future…. Upscaled DVD’s suit me just fine thank you very much…
