Sony Delays Blu-ray Player. Again

Once gain, Sony is delaying the release of its stand along Blu-ray player, BDP-S1. It was originally scheduled for launch over 6 months ago, Sony's flagship Blu-ray player will launch this December, after the launch of the PlayStation 3, which of course, includes Blu-ray playback capability.

The delay is most likely due to the lack of blue laser diodes. Since Sony only has a limited supply of those, the PS3 has top priority over the BDP-S1 and other devices.

I have a nagging feeling that Sony isn't going to make it. Aren't they still in financial trouble?

Sony just has to many brand new projects they are trying to get out at one time.

New HDTVs and front projectors, Brand spanking new Blu-ray player that has to be done right first time out, trying to stay alive in the music player department (I think they just recently released a new line of music players), Keeping up-to-date with with their Laptop/PC line, and of course the PS3. Add to all the problems they cause themselves as well as the market - something (or somethings) got to give.

Sony is probably going to concentrate more on getting the PS3 out first then hit the high end market with their first Blu-ray Player.

I wouldn't worry to much.

...I wonder what they're trying to do... are they trying to be tricky? Or, can they really not release anything on time?

I think Sony only put the working doids of the Blu Ray Drive into the PLAYSTATION 3. And some of the working doids are are in the Blu Ray player. The future is in hotpoint! Nearly here!
