I read online about this new type of blu rays: BDXL which allows a single disk to hold up to 100 GB or 128 GB. Also, it will be incompatible with previous blu ray players/burners.

If I am buying a blu ray burner right now, should I spend extra and buy one with BDXL capability or not?

Also, does anyone know of any plans to launch blu ray movies on BDXL discs?

Thanks..

You can buy an internal BDXL burner for $70, so they're not that expensive.

One blank 100GB BDXL disk costs $80 on Amazon.com.
A 5-pack 100GB costs $255 here: http://www.digistor.com/Blu-ray-Recordable-Media/100GB-...

I searched and couldn't find any 128GB blank disks. I'm sure when they're available for sale they will be even higher than the 100GB disks.

I doubt there will ever be movies released on BDXL disks. :D
