Default Bluray for Toshiba?

As an HD DVD player owner I was always very impressed with the low price point relative to Bluray players. That Bluray has won the format war with such expensive hardware is almost a crime. Let's hope that Toshiba starts making Bluray players that come in under 200! PS3 won the format war - if it had come down to stand-alone Bluray players versus HD DVD players, HD DVD would have won hands down. If only Microsoft had put HD DVD drives in the Xbox 360...

That 'low price point' was Toshiba taking huge losses on every player in an attempt to flood the market. It pretty much killed any chance they had of getting any CE support and contributed to them losing the format war. It won't happen again.
