Just bought a non-3D bluray player this week, and thought I'd mention that the department stores and other main stores seem to have dumped all of their old stock non-3D stock for the internet merchants to sell. In other words, I couldn't even buy a non-3D bluray player from a major store outlet (Lotte, Samsung Dept. Stores, Shinsaegae, etc.).
Wondered if this is also starting to happen in the USA? In Korea, this all seems to be a part of the huge LED/3-D push the TV manufacturers (LG, Samsung) in the area are making.
Personally, I went with a 2D player, because prices have been reduced, and I don't see 3D taking off for a LONG time, or perhaps at all in its present form.
