Next Gen Blue-Ra/Combo players = when?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am just scanning the latest threads now, after a month of abscence from this forum, so I apologize if this has been answered all ready..

But when will we begin to see 4X or more Blue-Ray writers selling for $499 or under? I'd prefer to get a combo drive.....but I already have the XBox HD DVD player. Now I need a Blue-Ray one..

But I just know that if I buy the current $599 2x writers, an announcement will be made later .

I think it makes sense for them to arrive late summer or fall. Let's be realistic, it's been only a few months since most of the players (except Samsung) came out. They want to give some shelf space to these 1st gen systems, and I think they'll wait as long as they can for the 2nd gen machines to see how low they can price them at.

There will always be something new in the horizon. Planned obsolences. You just have to make a decision.

Combo player at below US$500? You might wait at least 18 months, that is if the war lasts that long.
