Sony’s BDP-S300 Price Drop

If your in the market for a Blu-ray player this will be some news you will like to hear. Sony has announced a price drop on their BDP-S300 Bu-Ray player. Cutting $100 from it’s original price of $599, the BDP-S300 is now cheaper than the Playstation 3, and now makes it the cheapest Blu-Ray player on the market.
Many people have been known to use the Playstation 3 as a Blu-Ray player as it’s cheaper, and of course can play games, but many people will appreciate the HDMI 1.3 playback and traditional remove control and features from the BDP-S300.
Although, to be honest, I do not think it is the price of these players that are putting people off, it’s the HD war between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, no one wants to pay over $500 on a player than might be a dead format (or a big time underdog) in a number of years.
