sony,Pioneer and now Samsung delays blueray players
Sooo... does anyone think this a good sign for the ps3?????

Yep, something's wrong. Or they think HD-DVD isn't a threat because of their mediocre launch and want to wait to bring down costs a little...

So.... you can buy blueray movies but not the player? WTF..................

There's much, much wrong about this technology. Nobody needs it really at the moment and the coming 5 years and Sony tries to push it nomatter what.

They risk a lot with it. Not even the BetaBluRay technology but also the PS3. That are a lot of large risks all together for Sony

These delays are way to close to the release of the PS3. So how confident am I going to be about the system when I can't really see for myself if blu ray is worth it. If they are having problems even with movies to play right, then how can I trust a game on that technology.

Ben 10 Omniverse 2 followed the commendable original title with a lacklustre cash-in. Such a shame for the kids.
