More blue-laser diodes are a good thing. Supply shortages contributed to the PS3′s smaller than planned roll-out, as well as delays on other players. And more supply tends to mean lower costs, which will be helpful in bringing down the costs of the systems. This stood out for me:Samples are available for about $85 apiece. Now, I’m sure pricing is lower in quantity, but that just shows how expensive the components are for both BD and HD DVD and why decks are so expensive at this time.
