    Sony and Panasonic have revealed the future of Blu-Ray as both companies want the next wave of discs to hold 300GB of data by 2015.

    The BBC reports that while normal Blu-Rays currently hold 50GB of data, both parties have hopes to drastically increase that capacity moving forward.

    The site adds that 4K movies running at 1080p will take at least 100GB of data, hence the need for an expanded Blu-Ray format.

    That’s it really.

    The press release issued by Sony only talks about the movie industry but it remains to be seen if this new format will make its way into the games market.

    Seeing as both PS4 and Xbox One will run Blu-Rays this seems possible, but is such a large disc size really necessary?

    Let us know what you think below.
