Two weeks ago I got wind of a sub-C$400 price on Sony’s BDPS300. At the time I questioned whether that supplier was on the up and up, but now this past week any number of sources indicate that some price relief on Blu-Ray is in the pipe, at least on players. Even my local dealer pro actively called me up saying he had new pricing on the coveted Panasonic ‘50.
Finally some indication of long-term incumbency for HD-on-disc.
Movies on the other hand seem to remain at a relatively high premium compared to DVD which, although of no consequence to the movie renting masses, seems like poor reward for the movie collectors who have driven the market up to the present.
