Blu-ray Disc Specifications – Closer to reality

Posted in Accessories, General, news & rumors at 11:47 pm by playstation3

Good news from Blu-ray Disc Association, the group working on the super-expected next generation discs. The development  team has finally completed the specification of Blu-ray disc format, and already started licensing BD-ROM, BD-RE, BD-R.

BDA announced (Jan 2) that the specifications of BD-R and BR-RE2.0 were completed on December 26, 2005. Well, we didn’t know :) or – at least – I didn’t.

By the way, Blu-ray disks using the specifications of single layer (25GB) and double layer (50GB) of BD will join the market starting from Spring. Yahoo!!!

    Expect Playable PS3 at February Playstation Conference?
    Posted By: Breakpoint, http://www.PS3Gaming.com

    With the coming of CES in January, many people were hoping for a show by Sony that would display new information about the Playstation 3 that had never been seen before. Yet to the disappointment of many diehard fans, no new videos or console information was released besides a sneak peak at Playstation 3’s Blu-Ray Disc player.

    With no word of a future date for the first unveiling of a playable Playstation 3 console, PS3Gaming looks into Sony’s past to try and figure out what may be occurring. We go back to 1999 when the new millennium consoles for Sega Dreamcast and Sony Playstation 2 were making big news comparable to today’s Next Generation consoles of the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3.

    The Sega Dreamcast was out in the full world markets in 1999 with a huge leap over competition like the Microsoft Xbox 360, but both of these consoles fail to appeal to Japanese crowds. The Sony Playstation 2 at this stage was still in development and the only known details given to the world were its technical specifications. When comparing the Playstation 2 to the Playstation 3 at this stage in development, more is known about the Playstation 3 where real time game footage has been shown. However, both consoles have lacked a playable version being shown.

    Nearly a year passes from the announcement of the Playstation 2 console when its first showing of a playable game appears to the public at the Playstation Conference on February 18th, 2000.

    Only 2 weeks later the Playstation 2 is released in Japan with no first party titles on March 4th, 2000. Nearly one million consoles are sold at launch. Sony would later in May announce a plan to release the Playstation 2 in October for the United States.

    Could Sony be following the same plan for the Playstation 3? They could very well be. It seems like Sony could be a very tight mouth company and be ready to surprise the whole world next month and possibly ship Playstation 3 to Japan in Spring 2006.
