You can blame the economy on Pioneer's plasma division's death, but even before the economy fell Pioneer never made a decent profit in their plasma division. They were expensive to make.

That being said, I do not expect the 9g Kuros to be beaten anytime soon.

There has been no indication that Pioneer has any intention of resurrecting their flat panel division.


Makes no sense in ripping off a scab with the what ifs.

The Pioneer technology may not have been able to meet the new energy consumption restrictions. In this case, the hypothetical answer is the same as reality: no new plasmas from Pioneer.


There is not much of a market at the $2000 price point, let alone the $4000 price point, for 50" plasma displays.

What do you think Pioneer would have unveiled at CES 2011 if they never left the plasma business? Specs?

Really, why are people scrambling to pay that and more for the last of the 101s? I would gladly buy a 500M or 101 today for $2,000, if I didn't already have one.
