    Might be old news so sorry if it is, I was in the sony store today and the First Gen Sony which is basically a brand label of the Pioneer player just took a $400 price drop in preperation for the new player from Sony due in the store in 2 weeks.

    For me this pretty much makes the First gen Sony a done deal, since the guys at the sony store said the new player thats comming out for $599 will NOT have an Optical output.

    Not to mention that the First Gen Sony is a Pioneer product and pretty much everyone agree's the Pioneer still has the best PQ but its the most expensive because of the Ethernet port & Media Center functionality.

    The price drop was $999 to $799.

    The BDPS300 is an all Sony product. Not a clone job this time.
