The duo wants a 300 GB capacity disk by 2015
Sony and Panasonic have announced that they have signed a basic agreement that will see them jointly develop a new standard for professional-use optical discs. The objective of the two companies is to expand their business for long-term digital data storage by developing an optical disc with a capacity of at least 300 GB.
The two companies are directly targeting businesses that need archival storage including motion picture, broadcasting, and cloud service industries.
Optical discs are likely to remain a preferred long-term storage option because the discs are dust- and water-resistant. Another significant benefit of using optical discs is that they allow inter-generational compatibility between different formats -- that means older optical formats can be read on current generation optical drives.
Sony and Panasonic hope to make the 300GB optical disc available by 2015.

Age of Empires 2. (I own it not valve, but I also barrow valves copy too)
Sega Saturn collection.
I'm sure there is 10 year old software in plenty of people's homes that exists on the same medium. 25 year old software on the other hand. I do have Atari games somewhere I suppose, that's if they still work.

My point is that keeping stuff like that, even for over 10 years is rare. 100 is just pointless, outside of extreme niche scenarios.
