Despite already having the most storage muscle of any entertainment format on the market, both Sony Computer Entertainment and Panasonic have been able to produce an upgraded format for the disc, upping its single-layer storage capabilities from approx. 25gb to 33.4gb. Based on a new i-MLSE (Maximum License Sequencing Estimation,) Sony recently took the time at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show to reiterate that all blu-ray players (including Playstation 3 units) will be receiving a firmware upgrade to allow for the playback of the revamped discs.
What do the Elder-Geeks think will come of this new space? Will developers and publishers focus on adding additional content to PS3 games, or will this added leg-room not be taken advantage of at all? Give us your thoughts below!
