Double your pleasure is reporting that Sony has unveiled DD-R and DD-RW standards for recordable media. The media doubles the size of traditional 650 CD-R and RW discs and should be available shortly.
The drives will be available in retail stores by the beginning of April and will cost $249. DD-R discs will cost $1.99 each, and DD-RW discs will cost $2.99.

Sony's new products are an attempt to provide a middle solution between CD-RWs and their giant cousin, DVD-rewritable discs, which offer 4.7GB of capacity

The question becomes, is the convenience of double the data on a single disc worth twice the price, especially when you need a special drive?
