Sony drops price of BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player - now cheaper than PS3
Sony’s stand alone BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player is now priced at $499 making it a full $100 cheaper than a PS3 – and since there are no real games of note for the PS3, Sony may have officially shot itself in the foot on the much suffering console.
As the Blu-ray/HD-DVD war continues, one can’t help but be saddened that it’s even happening. I want to move to hi-def disks. I want them on my HDtv, but as of yet, I haven’t been willing to pick a side. I’m torn – Blu-Ray has content like Casino Royale that I really want in HD – but HD-DVD has not only been chosen by the porn industry as the content distributor of choice, but also Wal-mart.
If two of the most disgusting, but extremely popular and dominating, industries/companies in the world have chosen HD-DVD – who am I to argue?
Especially when you add the fact that the cheapest HD-DVD player is already $100 cheaper than Sony’s reduced BDP-S300 (actually until Father’s Day it’s $200 dollars cheaper after an in-store instant rebate) – and the HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox360 is 1/2 the price of the Sony player – it just makes me think HD-DVD is going to end up on top on this one.
Also…it’s Sony…I mean…look at their history with formats…they ALWAYS lose.
