A company spokesman confirms that it won't be available until December.
Sony will delay the release of its Blu-ray HDTV DVD player, the BDP-S1, until early December. The device has already been delayed once, and rumours are that a "software issue" inside the device are the cause for the latest postponement.
"We want to make sure that the end user has an enjoyable experience (with the player) when it is released," he said.
The high-def DVD player was originally scheduled to launch in late spring. This date was then moved forward to late October, and now for the start of December.
The retail price is expected to be $999, the same price as other Blu-ray players already on the market.
