The folks at AVS Forum are reporting that Toshiba's HD-XA2 (the HD-A2's mighty brother) will be coming out next week. The XA2 was supposed to debut this year, but production delays forced Toshiba to opt for a January release instead. The $999 player (which will feature HDMI 1.3) ships on the 3rd and will support 1080p/60Hz on launch with firmware upgrades already slated for the following month. If only both camps in the next-gen battle would get their acts straight.
