If you're like me, you've been waiting for that magical moment to jump on the Blu-ray bandwagon when prices dip below the mythical $150 price. Since they've won the format war, there has been no sign of the player prices dropping save for a few sparse Holiday sales last year. Well, according to Bl-ray.com however, the days of $99 players will soon be upon us thanks to the format finally being introduced to China.
I never thought I'd say this, but thank God for the Chinese and their shoddy manufacturing! The beauty is that this is not foreseen to be just a bargain holiday price; this may be the norm for the entry level Blu-ray players, officially bringing high definition home movies to the plebes like you and me. While I'm not a die hard pusher of the new format, I do look forward to expanding my library when it becomes affordable.
