Live From Las Vegas: Sony Announces New "Budget" Blu-Ray Player

Sony made the BDP-S300 official today. Which, for about $600, makes it the cheapest non-PS3 way to watch Little Man in high-def. It also upscales your regular-ol’ DVDs to 1080p, features component video output to 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i, and pumps out 8 channels of uncompressed audio. It’ll hit in the Summer, and won’t make a lick of sense as a purchase, since PS3s will probably be cheaper and easier to find by then.
