Default Can this Sony DVD Player play Blu-ray?

I found this on BBY website and I noticed on the back of it has a HDMI plug-in and I was just wondering if this Sony DVD player could play Blu-Ray DVD's. Link below.

If it did, there wouldn't be a format war.

So to answer your question...NO.

It's an upconverting DVD player, meaning it can only play regular DVDs and "upconvert" them to an HD resolution, although it's not going to look as good as Blu-ray or HD DVD at full resolution.

Thanks a bunch for answering, I wasn't sure because it had the HDMI plug-in on the back.

Yeah, upconverting uses HDMI because it's the only connection that they're legally allowed to use for DVD upconversion.
