Panasonic Brings 6x BD-R media to Japan - USA Has the 6x Recorders
Panasonic has announced they are going to be first to market with 6x compatible 25GB and 50GB BD-R discs begining July 10th in Japan.  While Japan will have 6x burnable media, the US will have the LG's 6x capable Blu-ray recorders.  Panasonic says that Blu-ray recorders compatible with 6x media will be available in Japan by the end of September 2008.  Panasonic has made no announcement of a US release date for 6x media.  Hopefully sooner than later the hardware and software will meet, giving everyone the opportunity to burn large capacity discs in a reasonable amount of time.

Profile Issues Confuse Consumers as They Upgrade From DVD to Blu-ray
Now that Blu-ray manufacturers don’t have a format war to contend with, they can focus on giving us players that take advantage of Blu-ray’s full technological potential. One of the main criticisms of the format thus far is that the first crop of players didn’t support interactive features like picture-in-picture playback and Internet connectivity (features that we got with early-generation HD DVD players, I might add).

List of Every Blu-ray Player on the Market in 2008
The first Blu-ray player may have arrived in 2006, but 2008 will go down in the consumer electronics annals (is there such a thing, hidden away in a drawer at the CEA?) as the year of Blu-ray. If I were the resident annals-writer, the post would read something like this: In 2008, Blu-ray defeated HD DVD and became THE high-definition disc format. In 2008, we finally saw Profile 2.0 players that exploit Blu-ray’s full potential. In 2008, more manufacturers joined the fray, giving consumers a wider array of product options at a variety of price points.
