Sony Delays Blu-Ray Player

Last Friday thegadget weblog Gizmodo caught the fact that the Sony Style webstore stealthfully changed the projected release date of its first Blu-ray player from June 25 to "on or about August 15, 2006."

The story is too old to be commented.

If Samsung delays their player then something is definitely wrong.

The BD format has already forced the PS3 to be delayed once and a second delay would be catastrophic for the platform.

I actually saw promo ads this week for BD players that now look to be highly dubious. Regardless of whether or not I want a PS3 at its launch price I do want to do a side-by-side with HD-DVD to compare and this is starting to look really bad with constant delays.

It really makes me wonder how many bugs are going to be found after the PS3 ships. New formats always lead to issues and this one could be a big problem, especially if they have trouble getting the movie-only players functioning on time...

They better sell HD-DVD players and discs with the blue-ray emblem on it, if they want people to eventually purchase one before 2020.
