Super-size Three: PS3 can read Pioneer's 16-layer, 400GB Blu-ray Discs

16 layers. 400 giga ... bites? Sounds like the fast food burrito equivalent of the Death Star. Ah, but it's not. It's a Blu-ray Disc, and those are gigabytes. So, this massive (current dual-layer BDs hold 50GB), entrancingly translucent disc? PS3 is compatible with it.

Thank goodness. This will hopefully put an end to the flood of multi-BD games on the system.

This disc, suitable for use by Tron, was first revealed this summer by its creator, Pioneer, and will be available en masse in 2010. Good news for those with large ... image collections: a writable version of this jumbo jet of Blu-ray Discs is also in development.
