Sony To Drop Blu-ray Player Prices On September 28th!?

Can anyone confirm this report by HD Guru?

According to an industry source citing an unconfirmed report in the trade publication, Consumer Electronics Daily, Sony will be dropping the price of its leader Blu-ray player (BDP-S350) by $100, bringing the retail price to $299 on Sept 28, 2008.

In addition, Sony’s step-up Blu-ray model the BDP-S550, will be delayed in the US till mid Oct. 08 and be introduced at $399, a reduction of $100 from its previously announced price.

The source (citing CE Daily) says another Blu-ray maker, Funai and its labeled brands (which include Philips/Magnavox, Sylvania and Insignia) will drop the retail price of their players $50 to $249 in late Sept. 08 as well.


I'm not really sure how exciting this is anyway as you can already get the BDP-S300 for $229 from Amazon.

Looks like it was true. It's even $299 on Sony's website.
