Submission + - Sony & Panasonic New Optical Storage 12x Blu-ray - Format War in the Making? (audioholics.com) 1

Does this have commercial implications as an Ultra-HD solution? If so, are we going to see format war brewing? Did the industry not learn its lesson from HD DVD vs Blu-ray, and VHS vs Beta?

Sony & Panasonic New Optical Storage 12x Blu-ray - Format War in the Making?

  • It would be nice if the summary included a brief description or a link to the opposing format/s. But really read-only optical media formats are on their way out. In the age of Netflix and yes YouTube, Blu-ray is likely to be the last disc format buyers will patronize in numbers large enough to justify the cost of development.

Can anyone remember when the times were not hard, and money not scarce?
