Sony BDP-S470, BDP-S570 First 3D Blu-Ray Players

sony bdp-s470Right now we can’t escape from the 3D invasion, with every manufacture plugging their latest 3D devices.

The Sony BDP-S470 will be Sony’s very first 3D Blu-ray player, and it will ship later this month for just $200! There is one small catch though, while it will ship this month, it’s won’t be 3D ready until a 3D blu-ray update is delivered via Firmware update in the summer.

This shouldn’t be a problem though, as we doubt about 3D blu-ray discs will be available before then, and it will ensure it’s running the latest 3D standards.

The Sony BDP-S470 can play back BD, CD, DVD and SACD along with other media via the USB connection. Bravia Internet Video also also supported for Internet connectivity and media streaming.

BD-Live is also supported about with 1080p Precision Cinema HD Upscaling of DVD and Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio decoding.

The Sony BDP-S570 will also be available this month for $50 more at $250, which comes with 1GB of built in memory and WiFi. I feel that these players are very well priced for offering the latest specifications and 3D capabilities.
