Another great company makes another great player! More power to the Blu!

The key to all of these players is price. They can announce all of the players they want but if the price is too high I don't know how well it would do. It is good news nonetheless.

YES YES Y.E.S!!!! More big name manufacturers and chinese/korean budget players and I think the victory will be swinging back this way <--------- GO BLU!!!

all of these players are really kicking a$$, even the ones that look like they will go for a low price beat half the hd dvd players in terms of quality.

damnsam77, victory never swinged out of our favour. MS making some desperate last dying wish moves isn't going to matter one way or the other. hd dvd got its cheap player and a exclusive studio, so what more are they going to add to IFA, an onkyo for 500????

i don't think it can be much more than $500. you got to figure cheap players are going to flood the markets pretty soon, really stepping up competition. sony is most likely going to lower the bdp-s300 price, i don't see how this can go for anything over $550.

The BDA would be smart to hit the market from every supporting manufacturer with the following spec line, over and over again: 1080p24/60 output via HDMI; Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD internal decoding; 7.1 channel support; with analogue outs; DVD upconversion and Profile 1.1 compliant. ...over and over again, and price on average, about ~$100 more than the HD DVD equivalent to remind Consumers HD DVD is cheaper for a reason: inferior goods.

Consumers will have a huge choice of players. Plus all of these companies are competing against each other for sales so prices will come down and they'll all be advertising their wares - it's all good for blu-ray

Excellent point! The more players the more competitive they will be on pricing.

Is this a European conference? All the players being announced seem to be for Europe.

Philips / Magnavox would be the company to watch to release affordable BD players. Good seeing philips starting to make them so then hopefully they will close the price gap between the HD DVD and BD players right now, another nail in the coffin.

We need to close the $200 gap guys....I am sorry, thats very important...we can have a ton of studios and manufactuer's behind us, the more players they make and sell, the cheaper the hardware becomes, but at the end of the day if we are to win this battle, WE NEED a $199-$249 player this xmas season, and by November at the latest. Possibily bundle them with a couple of free new releases (i.e. PS3 and Taladega Nights). Whats gonna be in stores for this holiday, Spiderman, Live Free or Die Hard, POTC 3....throw in a copy of Spiderman 3 in there and sell them for $200-$240 and we will seal the deal!!! Everyone has to make sacrifices, people poke fun at MS and HDDVD that they are losing the battle, they are giving away their players....in fact they are just playing the dirty pricing game, and they are smart for giving it all they got, so we need to stay competitive....I think the BDA got too comfy with the last 6 months worth of BD sale numbers crushing HDDVD, but now with Paramount and the Venturer $199 HDDVd players, they need to wake up and smell the coffee....DELIVER TO THE EVERY DAY JOE SIXPACK CONSUMER!!! HE Wants to go home, crack open his BEEEEEEEER!! Sit on his couch and watch an HD movie on his $799 1080i Olevia LCD monitor!!! Not everyoen in the world will spend $500 on a PS3 or an Elite Pioneer BD player...we cant lose touch with the general consumers....Thats why HDDVD is still in this battle, because they are not targeting HD enthusiasts, they are targeting the newbies that just picked up their Polaroid 30" 720p LCD monitor for $499 from Walmart!!! Wake up and smell the coffee BDA!!!!

Stockstar <--- yes you are right, Victory never swung away from BLU, but you know what I meant...the whole CRAPAMOUNT deal gave those bastards some momentum....we need to drain that HDDVD fuel tank, MORE BD movies sales, and cheaper entry level BD players that are 1.1. ready by xmas! I am sure, I am just preaching to the choir!

I think this will help for the lower budget segment of the BD player market. Phillips outputs great DVD players inexpensively and some you can hack to make them region free Another great CE manufacturer for BD players!!!

I have the BDP9000 and I like it a lot, but am also ready to upgrade to a new generation. Bring on the BDP7100. Give us some pics please!!!!!!!!!!

By the way HiddenDeths, the picture you see on that link is of the BDP9000 which I have, and not the new one.
