One other question this raises is whether all these Blu-ray delays will affect the PS3 launch. If they can't even get a player that does only Blu-ray playback to market on time, something that does Blu-ray plus so much more may be in for a bumpy ride. – Jason Chen
Update: We got an update that says Samsung's launch is on schedule, and the player is going to be released next week. We'll try and post some more info as we get it.
