PS3 will use Blu-ray Disc

By Derek Sooman on
Blu-Ray, which is quite possibly the future of disc storage, will find its way into the new Playstation, it was revealed today.

Not surprising that Sony has chosen this standard, since the Blu-ray Disc Founders organization is composed of Sony, Panasonic, and 11 other major electronic makers. This new format can hold 25GB of data per disc on single layer and 50GB for dual, making it the ideal choice for next generation games which will require such large storage capacities.

Sony plans to unveil more details on the PS3 next year at a premier event to be held in Japan, March 31.
