Don't know why such a statement would/could be made. Maybe their experience with the poor sales of the pricey first gen Samsung player left an unpleasant taste in their mouth and a large surplus. They might feel at that price point comparably they wouldn't see much of a desire for it and now they've staked out the pricing point as the PS3/Xbox 360 HD DVD addon/A2. Phoning a local BB I simply didn't have a commitment but not outright rejection.
Of course as I stated here in Winnipeg, I've never seen the Sony or Panasonic players so again it appears the Samsung player has left a poor residue in their collective mouths on the price point issue.
