$300 if that keeps up this soon in the game the price difference between a Good Blu-Ray player and Good DVD player are gonna so minute that consumers might as well jump ship to a HD standard and Blu-Ray will be there. Great for sony and for PS3 owners who don't have to worry about the built in Blu-Ray player going by way of Beta-max.

Remember the $200 HD-DVD players will be released in the summer. The cheapest Blu-Ray player will be the Sony $600 oneOR A PS3. I think this year will be the true battle between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, as they are approaching the magic price points that consumers will actually purchase them. Personally, I have been holding out to see who will win. It is still too early to call it.
