Panasonic shows off BDXL, 3D-supporting players Panasonic Japan has shown off six new Blu-ray DVRs this week, each with BDXL-support, meaning they can playback and record to the new three-layer, 100GB discs introduced in July.
Each of the models come with HDDs and Blu-ray recorders, and will support the larger disc capacities.

Three of the new players even include 3D-support, the latest trend in the industry.

The DMR-BW series does not have 3D support, and the most expensive model has 1TB of HDD space on-board and comes with two digital TV tuners. That model retails for $1780.

Adding 3D support and another TB of HDD space, the DMR-BWT series' most expensive model will retail for $3300.

Although there are no plans for an EU or NA launch, Panasonic will begin selling all 6 models in Japan on September 15th.
