Disc players, laptops and the PS3. They've all got Blu-Ray now, but Sony's not satisfied. The Japanese megacorp wants its HD discs in TVs too.

Sony stepping it up once again. Watch some haters still hate them just because it's "Sony"

Some people diss everything Sony does because they're Sony.

Others diss everything Microsoft does because they're Microsoft.

The rest of us? The rest of us just play games and hope the first two groups will eventually lose their voices from yelling and crying and whining so much about.

Sounds like a winner. Though are they not worried it might cut into PS3 sales. Nah. Probably not.

As long as they work out quite a lot cheaper than a TV and a stand alone sold separately. Because having a BR player built in has obvious disadvantages compared to stand alones.

Oddly enough, just this weekend I was wondering when this was going to happen. I mean, VHS and DVD did it, why not Blu-ray?

I always worry about built-in media like that though. What happens if it breaks down? How much does it add to the cost? Etc.

Typically I stick with stand-alone parts as much as I can, so everything is modularized and thus replaceable. Which is why I prefer desktop computers to laptops.
