god...what was it they said in that game....KO! This is a niccceee stride for Blu-ray. A reputable and stable brand (not some small foreign firm) and a price point that is very very easy on the eyes and as close to HD-DVD.

This one has full 1080p support so its should be compared to $800+ XA2 in stead of the current $499 model.

What benifits does this model have over the PS3.

You mean the HD-A20. It does 1080P output and retails for $599. It should be out this Spring.

No I meant the XA2 - never heard of A20 - by that time some other Blu-ray player could come out - this market is starting to move especially with price of players. Remember that the current Sony Blu-ray player is $999 ( 900 on amazon ) and now this one is coming.

They announced the A20 at CES. And will be between the A2 and XA2 in features. The XA2 is already selling for around $750 and the A2 is in the mid to upper $300's.
But for $500 for the new Sony BD player, I'll bet the PS3 will still be a much better deal. A few months ago I was adamant about not using a game machine as a movie player, but after using it and seeing how fast it is, I'm sure it will be a while until there is a player that is just as fast.

The A20 and the S300 will be comparable units at the same price. That's alright. I doubt Sony will compromise like Toshiba did and release a model without HDMI or one that doesn't output 1080p.

I'm interested to know if the S300 has HDMI 1.3 and if it outputs 1080p/24
