It would be nice if it pressured them to lower the price, but I still think that the price is too high.

The average consumer is not going to spend that.

A week ago this would be huge, but because of the A2 and A3 pricing, not so much.

However if the curve keeps up then these players will be 199 to 299 next year.

I'll be dumping my two players for one.

If you took the time to read the article, it's the BH100, which cannot play HD DVD interactive features, or blu-ray profile 1.1 features, and has lots of problems playing Blu-ray discs and needs updates.
It's a very bad deal.
