Sony: $299 Blu-ray Player In 3 YearsCompany executives say price declines will follow DVD history.
By Phillip Swann
Washington, D.C. (January 17, 2007) -- Waiting for those $999 Blu-ray players to drop under $500?
Well, you may have to wait awhile. Sony says it could be three years before the player drops to $299 or $399.
In an interview with CNET's News.com, Sony President Stan Glasgow noted that DVD player prices took a few years before they reached more affordable levels.
"If you go back to when DVDs came into play, it took about three years until they got into price points of $299 to $399. I suspect it's about the same thing here with Blu-ray. I think it's going to take up to three years to get down to those price points, possibly a little longer," Glasgow said.

Blu Ray players: Not until the PS3 hits that price point, ie not for a long long time unless Sony changes their current 'PS3 is lowest priced BD player on the market' strategy.
