Sony Cutting BDP-S350 Blu-ray Player Price By $100: Rumor
The HD Guru, citing an unconfirmed report, says Sony will drop the price of its flagship BDP-S350 Blu-ray player by an impressive $100, bringing the price down to $299 as of September 28. Whether or not that's a permanent pricepoint remains to be seen, if the rumor is actually true. Sony will also delay the release of the BDP-S550 until October 8 and price it at $399, $100 below it's initial MSRP.
Second-tier Blu-ray manufacturer Funai, which sells under the names Philips/Magnavox, Insignia and Sylvania in North America, is also rumored to be dropping its player prices to $249 as of September 8.
We've always maintained that your best Blu-ray buying bet is to go with the PS3, but if the rumors are true and you're looking for nothing more than disc playback our feelings may be about to change.
