Mitsubishi Japan's New Blu-ray Player Features BDXL Support and a Double Sided Remote

They hit Japan late next month, but we don't expect to see them reach the US.

The latest Blu-ray player line to come out of Mitsubishi Japan is a particularly interesting one, since it boasts several features not found in most players. That's a pretty big deal, considering how common things like Wi-Fi, access to streaming services and even 3D capability have become.

Mitsubishi is branding these players as REAL Blu-ray players, and it's plain to see why they earn the name. They do everything your typical Blu-ray player does, but boast hard drives ranging in size from 500GB up to 2TB so you can record all the TV you want.

The player comes with a double-sided remote that offers controls for your TV on one side and your Blu-ray Player / DVR on the other. Flipping it from one side to the other triggers a built-in sensor that can identify which end is up.
