Blu-ray's Not Getting Any Cheaper With Sony BDP-S350, BDP-S550 And Eidos 20 BD Blu-ray Player Announcements
How much do you think this little box costs?
We'd be willing to bet money that you weren't even close because it costs a whopping $17, 000. Yes, that's right, Goldmund's new Eidos 20 BD Blu-ray player will cost you that much when it's released. Of course, like most new products leaked onto the web, no date has been announced as of yet. Not to many details have been released either, but at $17,000 we'd hope you'd be witness to one of the greatest HD movie experiences ever.
Sony announced the upcoming release of two new Blu-ray players as well, the first to support Sony's BD Live service which allows you to download bonus materials and games from the internet and enables picture-in-picture viewing. Sony will first release the BDP-S350 sometime this summer for "around $400" but won't support BD Live until the fall when it's expected to officially debut. The BDP-S350 will feature an ethernet port for connecting to the web via your home broadband connection. The second player, the BDP-S550, will be released in the fall after BD Live is available and will be priced at "around $500". Looks like Blu-ray players won't be getting cheaper anytime soon.
