This decision has a lot to do with the current economic crisis our country is going through. People are also expected to have a lot less cash in hand this holiday season.
The Olevia BD-110 player will be lowered down to just $299. The Philips BD-7200 will sale for around $250, which is $100 cheaper than MSRP.
Will the price drop help the Blu-ray market take off from a rather slow rocky start? I personally don't think so.
