Sony Overturns Blu-ray Line with Nicely Priced 3D-Ready BDP-S470 and BDP-S570

Sony got serious about home-theater Blu-ray at CES 2010, with a 3D, Wi-Fi, Netflix-powered monster with iPhone-app control. Sadly, the model we at Gizmodo praised is now pointless. But two cheaper ones-the $200 BDP-S470 and the $250 BDP-S570-are suddenly hot.

There are three reasons Gizmodo is posting this:

1) Because Sony just announced a new $200 Blu-ray model, the 3D-ready BDP-S470, which will cost only $20 more than the $180 BDP-S370.

2) Because Sony also announced that it would give the Wi-Fi-equipped S570 the very same 3D capability, in that very same firmware update.

And 3) Because we at Gizmodo don't get what's going on either. Why sell the bottom-line S370 or the high-flying S770 at all?

The story is too old to be commented.

It looks great when you are wearing the glasses. But on the flip side, if your that member of the family invited over to watch a movie in 3d, and don't have the glasses, you're screwed.

That's a terrific player.
