Blu-Ray tells their first adopters to bend over as the players they bought are now obsolete so to speak and cannot take full advantage of Blu-Ray's features
None of the first Blu-Ray players, the Profile 1.0 players, can be upgraded to Profile 1.1, which was finalized recently, with the exception of the PlayStation 3. Likewise, Profile 2.0 is expected to arrive in October bringing Internet connectivity that Profile 1.1 players lack.

Representatives at the Blu-ray booth at CES said that the PlayStation 3 is currently the only player they would recommend, due to upcoming changes to the platform. But Pioneer, Samsung, Panasonic and Sony have all been selling standalone Blu-ray players to customers.

So what do you do if you were a early adopter of Blu-Ray hardware?

Your basically out of luck, and will have to buy a new player to enjoy all of the benefits of Blu-Ray.
