Samsung Delays BD-P1000 Blu-ray Player Yet Again

After pushing the launch date from May 23rd to June 25th, Samsung confirms that their Blu-ray BD-P1000 isn't going to be released until September.

Sony's BDP-S1 is also delayed until August, so consumers are left wondering whether these first generation Blu-ray machines are going to work out or be sort of a bust—like how Toshiba is fixing its HD DVD players using a firmware update.

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.

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.
