Now that the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray is over, Sony will go against others Blu-Ray manufacturer... ^^
Cuz, $349 it's a good price, but for more 50$ you will have a good Blu-Ray player, a videogame console, web browsing, etc, etc...

Said that Sony showcased 2 BD-LivE players.

IT wasn't at the conference but it was there.

Also, Ps3 will get a Firmware update to support BD-Live in the near future!

The more the player, the cheaper it'll get!

No WiFi and no PS2 BC, but with 65nm RSX and Cell. They should price it at $299 to bring the rest of the players below that.

But that would only cater to a very niche group.
To sell to the masses you need a price that will sell to the masses.
And $300 bucks or higher doesn't work.
I'd be scared to buy a Philips BD player. We sell their tv's and we get them back on a daily basis.
