Sony announces successor to Blu-Ray Disc format (up to 1TB of data).
Apparently Sony's Blu-Rays are receiving a successor, with a new name, "AD", meaning "Archival Disc", to launch next Summer (2015)
They will start with a capacity of 300GB per disc, and will move to 500GB and 1 TB.
Not sure if this will be compatible with current versions of PS4, as there is no information about whether a new lens will be required (I'm assuming a new lens would be required .)Archival Disc systems will launch in summer 2015, with the first versions featuring 300GB of storage capacity--that's 6X the capacity of current 50GB Blu-rays. Sony will expand recording capacity per disc to 500GB and 1TB sometime later, though specific timing was not announced.
"In recent times, demand for archival capabilities has increased significantly in the film industry, as well as in cloud data centers that handle big data, where advances in network services have caused data volumes to soar," Sony said in a statement.
The new Archival Discs are write-once and are double-sided with three layers per side.
