Sony Blu-ray later rather than sooner

October 15th, 2006 · No Comments

Sony UK says it will not launch a player to compete with first generation decks from Samsung and Panasonic. “It’s a question of later rather than sooner, when it comes to Blu-ray for us,” admits the brand’s Eric Kingdon.
“We won’t be talking about any product introduction until March 2007 at the earliest.”
Sony says there’s little point in promoting Blu-ray until PlayStation 3 is launched in Europe. “Sure we’ll be using Japanese Blu-ray players at our high definition industry events but we’re not going to be talking up the format. When we launch it will be a product similar to the BDP-S1, but not exactly the same.”
