Default Sony's next player

I have a S300 and a PS3. I have some problem with my S300. nothing big but I honestly like my PS3 better as a Blu Ray player. I am thinking about of bringing the S300 back to BB. I have a few days left until my 30 days are up.

I am thinking of waiting for the next Sony player. Any idea when Sony releases the 3rd gen. player ?

Nope, have heard nothing. But Samsung will be releasing their 3rd generation player in the next few months. I have the 1200 and it has the best picture in Blu ray and up-conversion of sd dvd's.

Well here is my predictions based on Sonys past release strategies.

December 2007 - New "high end" model is released for $650 (with better/faster Java support and shorter bootup times etc..) . The S300 is dropped in price to $300.

April 2008 - New budget model is released for $300, and it matches almost all the features of the highend model released earlier. High end model drops in price to $499

I don't think we are going to see a less than $200 player from Sony, anytime soon if ever. As people that buy Sony expect alteast some standards in build quality, and so they are smart to leave the lowend market for those small Chinese companies.

As I see it the S300 is a stable and quality built budget player. It really does not have any major flaws, other than that it does not have all the latest features. My only complaint is slow bootup time, and crippled resuming and bookmarking capabilitiees.Therefore I don't think Sony has to hurry that much in replacing it, they just need to adjust the price to keep it afloat.

SonyStyle.com just emailed me this morning that my S300 had shipped fedex and I expect it Tuesday Hope it's a good one.
