"With high-definition TVs spreading rapidly and more digital cameras and camcorders are becoming HD-ready, time is ripe for household recorders to move onto a next generation," Sony Executive Deputy President Katsumi Ihara told a news conference.
"We intend to make all our recorders in the domestic market Blu-ray compatible," he said.
Blu-ray recorders can still handle conventional DVD discs.
Outside its home market, Sony is considering offering Blu-ray recorders in Europe, but the launch timing has yet to be decided.
