Sony today announced that the 10 millionth BD-50 (or 50GB Blu-ray disc) was produced in the company’s factory in Terre Haute, Indiana.

This brings the total number of discs made to over over 50 million, manufactured between three plants, the other two based in Austria and Japan.

The disc was a copy of Spider-man 3, an upcoming Blu-ray release that is sure to be one of the format's biggest selling titles.

Spider-man 3 is rumored for release on October 30, in a possible 40GB PlayStation 3 bundle pack, designed to promote the consoles multimedia capabilities. If this bundle is confirmed, BD will be in for a great holiday season.
