Yes, TDK, who said they were going to make 200GB discs, went and made 200GB discs. Who'da thunk it? Well, unfortunately for everyone on the planet, there isn't any drive or player out right now that can read 200GB discs. Oh well.

The 200GB monster is single sided, but has six layers with 33.333333333 (continuing) GB on each layer. First 100GB discs, now 200GB discs. What's next, TDK? Are you going to blow our minds with, wait for it, THREE HUNDRED GIGABYTE DISCS? OMG.

wouldnt this just require an upgrade in the drives (movement of the optics) to work?

God (and TDK) knows, but the current slew or BD players could probably play these with a firmaware upgrade

PS: this is wild guesswork, please tell me if i am wrong
