Archival Disc AD 500

Sony has just launched their Archival Disc AD 500 that will be available in their ODC 5500R cartridges sometime in 2020. I wonder if we will see a one disc single sided version containing 250GB with an appropriate drive that fits into a 5.25" PC-Case slot…

I guess there are no prices known for mdia and drives?

According to the press release by Sony Japan
(https://www.sony.co.jp/SonyInfo/News/Press/201911/19-116/)
the estimated market prices will be (excluding tax)
ODS-D380U: 1,400,000 Yen (11560 Euro)
ODS-D380F: 1,980,000 Yen (16350 Euro)
ODC5500R: 27,000 Yen (223 Euro)
