No Delay For Samsung Blu-Ray

Just yesterday, news about the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray Disc Player release being delayed spread around the internet like wild fire, leaving a lot of Samsung customers disappointed. But this news sure will put a smile on their faces. The reported delay is NOT in the US market (I repeat not in the US) but in the UK, where they'd have to wait until autumn. As proof, right now, Amazon is already taking on pre-orders for this product. It sells for \$999.99 and is supposed to be released 2 weeks from now.

I guess that's why Sony is still releasing the movies next week.

$999.99. It's funny how they don't want to add that penny so it could look like it doesn't cost a $1000.00. I'm Sold.

True, it's that way for everything though. This player looks nicer than Sony's player, IMO. Looking forward to seeing both in person though.

Five Hundred Dollars for HD-DVD....
You do the math :)

1 HD DVD + 1 HD DVD = 2 HD DVD.

I like the 5th element, but it's not a grand kind of like.

Too little, too late, you're dead. Trust is gone and not coming back.

It's ugly, but I think they deserve a second chance only because they, at least, admitted they took a wrong turn, and they want to straighten things up. unlike for example, Nvidia.

Remember, competition is good for the consumers. we don't want them to go out of business, but to do things fairly.

It's only a matter of time until something else disagreeable becomes policy. The stage has been set. Stone has been cast. Can't rewind time like you can in their game engine.

Not sure why the downvotes...probably people who have 0 dev experience(or socialists lol). Competition is essentially for quality products.

Get out of here being logical and level headed on the internet. You can only spread hatred and be obstinate with zero exceptions. Obviously nobody being overly dramatic and critical has ever made a mistake. Otherwise they wouldn't be so quick to place permanent judgement on anyone....
