Sony Blu-ray Player: $142 with Four Movies

Bigpicturebigsound.com writes: "When we broke the news about Amazon's $100 instant savings offer last week, we thought it was pretty cool that you could take home a Samsung or Sylvania Blu-ray Disc player and four movies for around $175. Well now Amazon is making a sweet deal even sweeter, adding three different Sony Blu-ray Disc players to the list of eligible players.

Combining this deal with Amazon's low player prices, you can now get a Sony BDP-S300 plus four Warner movie on Blu-ray for $142, or get the latest generation BD-Live enabled player (the BDP-S350) for about $190 with four movies! You can also choose the top-of-the-line BDP-S550 or PS3 gaming console/Blu-ray Disc player. Disc selection includes popular titles such as Superman, I Am Legend, Speed Racer, Batman Begins and Superman Returns as well as 26 other titles."

Pretty good deal for new BR customers!

The gaming GOD3517d ago (Edited 3517d ago )

My mother wants a blu ray player. Guess who's about to bag an early xmas gift :)

But I'm gonna try to get the BDP-S550 version player for her

vitz33517d ago

B, b, b, but Kotaku and others said that Blu-ray is dying!! Abandon ship!

FCC3517d ago (Edited 3517d ago )

Now people, this is a reasonable price to buy a BR player. I've hated the $200+ price before, this is now a perfect Christmas present.

Though I still have a negative disposition due to the thousands of asshole PS3 fanboys worshipping it like it's their religion. I hate you all and I want to drive a nail through your eyes with my thumb. This is partially also why I don't want or like the PS3, that and the ridiculous price for a machine that doesn't make the 360 look like roadkill on a highway, way to ruin reputation N4G and fans.

So basically, I still f*cking hate Blu-ray and it's fans, but still getting one for my girlfriend and I for Christmas.

GrammarPolice3517d ago

Life's too short to let fanboys dictate your likes and dislikes. Blu-ray is great, and you're about to get into a whole new addiction. I hope you and your girlfriend enjoy your purchase- it really is fantastic. Fanboys for both the PS3 and 360 suck- so don't let them influence you or take away from your enjoyment of high-def entertainment. Best wishes to you and your girlfriend!

FCC3517d ago (Edited 3517d ago )

Yeah, I agree Grammar, and thanks for the wishes.

Another big reason why I didn't buy into the Blu-ray and PS3 thing is the overhyped features and graphics of both. None of them make a big enough difference to warrant the extra $80+ (could be $170 in the PS3s case).

I kind of take that back, Blu-ray makes a difference, PS3 doesn't. I still wouldn't buy them based on hype when they cost significantly more. I'm getting the Blu-ray player on Christmas, if it doesn't live up to the hype, some people are going to die for misleading me. :P

EDIT:
OK.

4 bubbles now N4G? Really? Seems like no one can express their views on Blu-ray or the PS3 here. It seems that if anyone shares their views against Microsoft and Xbox 360 in a negative way, they either keep bubbles or gain some. If someone shares their views against Sony, PS3 and Blu-ray you lose them and get 50 disagrees.

Good job, N4G, you fascists.

tplarkin73517d ago

They're only giving it away because nobody is buying it.

Omegasyde3517d ago

By saying you hate the PS3 and its fans base (the bad ones) you have come off as a hypocrite.

You state you hate how it cost extra and that it doesn't deliver on graphics.Ok in your opinion, yet you totally miss the point of why the Ps3 cost more than a 360....

It plays games, surfs internet, free online, included harddrive
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.
+ plays blu-ray movies.

And once again "+ plays blu-ray movies".
Wow. What were you expecting the blu-ray drive in the machine to cost 1 dollar? Then you concede to actually wanting to buy a blu-ray player?

Your explantion of hating sony for the cost of its machine is absolutely illogical. And then you won't buy a PS3 because of people on the internet acting immature? WOW.

You FCC are a bigger tool than those fanboys you hate.

JoySticksFTW3517d ago

Awwwww....

Poor Fcc. Those fanboys are so so mean. :'(

"I wanna take nails and drive 'em in a fanboys eyes! grrrrr!!!!!"

Ahahaha Keep Crying! It's funny! :D

bigshynepo3517d ago

Things that earned you red bubbles...
1) "I hate you all and I want to drive a nail through your eyes with my thumb."

What, did you just finish torturing your cat and still have rage to get out? I'd be surprised you have a girlfriend with a mentality like that.

2) "This is partially also why I don't want or like the PS3, that and the ridiculous price for a machine that doesn't make the 360 look like roadkill on a highway, way to ruin reputation N4G and fans."

It's marginally more expensive because it has marginally more features. (not just blu-ray, other features & benefits as well)

3) I still f*cking hate Blu-ray and it's fans

Again with the generalizations. Just because fanboys are the ones who post doesn't mean they are the only ones who can down rank you for being a dipsh!t. You sound like the major fanboiez you hate with all your extremist opinions. Funny thing is, you actually write like you think you're more mature then them.

Si-Pie3515d ago

Why dont you just ignore the fanboys as I do? Its mostly stupid little kids anyway who have no life yet and thinks the world revolves around their console. I think this article which I read the other day describes them quite well --- http://www.bruceongames.com...

So just ignore it and have the console which plays the games you like.
But back to the article this is a very good price but being im in the UK I doubt I will see it here that cheap!

have one of these and a Xbox 360 is the way to go.

having both still cheaper than the ps3 and way more quality in gaming , a real blu-ray player itself which will outform ps3's

Nineball21123517d ago

You're entitled to your own opinion, but that doesn't make it right.

The PS3 is one of the best blu-ray players (if not the best) because it can always update it's firmware to the latest standard(s).

Also, since the vast majority of PS3's are connected to the interwebs, it'll update when the latest upgrade is available.

Having said that... yeah, if you don't have a PS3 and only have a X360, then picking one of these up would make a great deal of sense.

Sony Rep3517d ago (Edited 3517d ago )

More money for Sony... :)

aiphanes3517d ago

you can get a PS3 for $399 at walmart this weekend and then get a $100 walmart gift card!

So technically the PS3 is $299.

"have one of these and a Xbox 360 is the way to go.

Funny how the VideoPhiles disagree with you.

http://reviews.cnet.com/bes...

Just about 4 months ago, PS3 got DTS HD-MA decoding on the PS3, making it one of the Best systems to watch a blu-ray movie in thanks to its superb audio and Video. It is also one of the first Boxes to support BD live(Profile 2.0, aka the final for Blu-ray Movies) right out of the box. It also supports Profile 3.0, for those who want to listen to High Quality Audio on BLu-ray.

Im still waiting for people to talk about how Netflix has superior Video Streaming to BLu-ray, that way they can get ripped by everyone on this site.

If you are a gamer and love to watch movies, do yourself a favor and get a PS3, it doesnt hurt to have both consoles next to each other.

IF you are not a gamer but loves movies, then get the Blu-ray player.

I am a gamer and love to watch my movies in Full HD, so i got myself a PS3.

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3517d ago

+I don't need one because my AMAZING Games Console the SEXY;)PS3 can play Blu-ray Movies to!!! ;-P

LoVeRSaMa3517d ago

BLUR111

are you retarded?

PS3 still has the best Blu Ray player due to firmware updates.

Oh, and its a gaming console, the most powerful gaming console made by sony..

How dare you even thing that the LOLBOX360 + Phailo 3 can even compare.

Tool.

I thought Blu-Ray was dead!

/end sarcasm

P.S. Prediction: Blu-Ray is dead article to follow this one within 24 hours. Can't have people buying into a dead format can we?

Venomish3517d ago

hahahah :D
they just cant stand blu-ray being successful

ReBurn3517d ago

Don't worry, within minutes of the "Blu-Ray is dead" article there will be a "Blu-Ray is the best thing ever!" article. Then Sony will come over and fill your tank with gas because they love their customers so much.

My point is that this is a never-ending cycle. Fanboy versus fanboy and to the death. The internet is a dangerous place.

Omegasyde3517d ago

Yea talk about the internet being a dangerous place, I just got genital warts from going to a XXX site.

;)

pp3517d ago

Great thank god no need to buy a ps3

Elvfam5113517d ago

It's still Sony behind it Xbot

0verdrive3517d ago

wow pp must stand for pretty pathetic

that he has to mention gears in EVERY post that he posts, even when the article has nothing to do with gaming.

get a life

FCC3517d ago

The difference is: Sony didn't hype this Blu-ray player to abysmal status.

morganfell3516d ago

Let's compare. Are there any HD DVD players that beat the 360 in price? And part two of that question, does it matter?
