First Sony HD-DVD: Already late!

Sony was preparing a worldwide launch of its first High Definition DVDs (on Blu-Ray discs) for the 23rd of May. They decided to move it into the future. For a good reason:

“The majority of our retail base and hardware partners have requested that we reconsider this date to better coincide with the first commercially available Blu-ray-compatible hardware”

In other words: On the market, there’s no DVD player able to read those Blu-Ray discs…


  1. But another division of Sony, just announced the availability of recordable media for BluRay. Maybe these ones did not have the pressure from outside the company…
