PIONEER DELAYS BLU-RAY PLAYERS
September release comes with price drop to $1,500
By Jennifer Netherby 6/6/2006


JUNE 6 |
Electronics maker Pioneer Corp. said Tuesday it will push back the release of its first Blu-ray players to September and drop the price to $1,500.

Players were initially slated to launch in June and sell for $1,800, but the company decided to hold off to spend more time testing players and working on interoperability, said Andy Parsons, Pioneer senior VP.

“We wanted to make sure everything works well with various titles being developed with various studios,” Parsons said.


The news was somewhat expected; Parsons told VB in late March that a delay was possible (VB, 3-29).

The key points to this article are in reference to the Pioneer player being released in September of this year and at $300 less. While the articles are stating a delay (from the original May / June launch), many were posting and believing the launch wouldn't happen till after the PS3 or even this year.

As it stands now, with current information, Samsung should debut this month, Sony in August, and Pioneer in September.

Edit... By the way, this is in reference to Pioneer's standalone BR player. They had already shipped PC BR players last month.
