    Long term archival? Really? The average lifespan of an optical disk is supposedly 7 years, best case 15 and worst case 2. Compare that with a hard drive or tape storage where assuming you turn them off and put them in a dust free container they'll last to the end of time (or thereabouts). Even ssds beat optical disks with a lifespan of 10-20 years when no power is supplied. How's about you just bring back microdrives which were tiny hdds as big as a CF card, or maybe a little bigger will do if they need more capacity.

    As other, fail to see why the interest or investment in this. Even 50GB bluray recordable discs are expensive, hard drives are still so cheap this makes no sense. Even a 2.5" drive makes more sense.

    I doubt it. I think full blu-ray rips of current 1080p content can be 40GB-ish, so the codec would have to be ludicrously effective. Maybe the 100GB Blu-ray discs could have a chance, but still might be a push.

    Gonna be a while before 4k displays are really taking off but I could see these being used for films even more so if the next consoles pick this format. Can't see much use for archiving especially very long term.

    It depends on the nature if the optical technology. That might be the case for CD+/-R and DVD+/-R, but other optical technologies, like DVD-RAM, MO or PD drives are far better suited, IMHO, to archive than tape.
