Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2011

Posted in Wii U by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2011

According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, the company’s new gaming console won’t play DVD or Blu-ray discs. This is due to patent licensing fees and besides they feel that enough people already have devices that are capable of playing DVDs and Blu-ray.

They have a point. And besides, we don’t care about DVD and Blu-Ray as long as the console has Netflix capabilities and we are sure that will be included at some point anyway.

Posted in Blu-ray by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2011

Fox and George Lucas didn’t even give a release date for the arrival of Star Wars on Blu-ray at CES, but now we have some info. Amazon has updated its preorder ship dates to September 27th. It has 30 hours of special features and I’m guessing that none of them show Han firing first.

Panasonic DMR-BR30 Blu-ray recorder with swappable hard drives

Posted in Blu-ray by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

Blu-ray recorders with integrated hard drives are no big deal, but Panasonic is offering something different in their DMR-BR30 that was announced for the Japanese market. It features a slot for swappable hard drives. The idea must be to mimic VHS cassettes. It’s not a bad idea really.

The problem is that you won’t be able to swap just any hard drive. You’ll need to buy Panasonic’s DY-HDD500 500GB hard drives for $240 each. It connects via a USB connection and is only supported in this recorder. Users will be able to copy videos from Blu-ray discs or DVDs to the hard drive or vice versa. But only if you have that hard drive.
