Blu-Ray launches May 23

March 7th, 2006 · No Comments


Eager to snap at the heals of , the camp has ear-marked May 23rd as the official launch date of the next generation disc system in the US. The first player will come from Samsung, the $1000 BD-P1000, while the initial disc selection from Sony and MGM will comprise Hitch, 50 first dates, House of flying daggers, The last waltz and The Fifth Element. More titles will dribble out in June.
With no PS3 on hand to counter the low-cost of dedicated HD DVD players, the early-adopter appeal of this proposition is difficult to assess. There’s no doubt that the Blu-ray camp continues to lobby strongly, but as an opening appetizer, this first BD offering looks relatively easy to resist.
