et al. hammered out the Blu-ray Disc spec, there's been
speculation, theorization, and discussion
of an 8-layer 200GB disc. Sony even supposedly had some working 200GB BRD demos way back in
2004. Well, now those mammoth coasters are in the works over at TDK, who apparently hope to commercialize the first presumably
quad-layered dual-sided discs (or possibly octo-layered single-sided discs -- yeah, right). They're not giving it
up as to when these discs could come out or how much they'll cost, but right now we're more worried about just getting
our hands on some players, you know?
