From Blu-Ray.com:


Sony DADC has announced that they have produced their 10 millionth BD-50 disc. The disc, a copy of the upcoming 'Spider-man 3' Blu-ray release, was produced at Sony's Terre Haute facility in Indiana, one of three such facilities which produce the high capacity discs (the other two being in Austria and Japan). Together, the three plants have produced more than 50 million Blu-ray discs at a capacity of 21 million discs per month.

The huge increase in Blu-ray production can be attributed to gains in production yields. The BD-25 now has a consistent yield rate of around 85%, while the more difficult to produce BD-50 are consistently between 75% and 79%. Cycle times for the BD-50 have also greatly improved, meaning more Blu-ray discs are being made than ever before with levels for BD-25s approaching parity with their DVD production.

Sony has also extended assistance to Blu-ray disc replication equipment manufacturers Singulus and Oerlikon who are expected to release BD-50 upgrades for their popular manufacturing lines within the next few weeks.

They won't believe that announcement because Sony announced it.

One has to wonder if this 10 million figure includes discs that didn't work!

No matter how you spin it, that's a lot of friggin BD-50 discs!

Geez, some of those guys should really get into politics.
Those skills could come in handy there.

Umm, how many hd 51gb discs are being produced? How many players can play them?

Just to show I'm a nice guy...I wont even ask what the ratios of bad disks are!

I'd like to know how or why they did that when, no PS3 games use BD 50 and Sony just announced there 1 million BLU-RAY movie disc's sold most of which are on BD 25. So what are they doing with all these BD 50 discs cause they aren't being sold and aren't being used for PS3 games.

Great news if it's true. I was always suspicious that the yields were not nearly as bad as people were making them out to be. I expect ever higher yields by the beginning of next year.

Continue discussion there.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
