Sony Delays First Blu-ray Player... Again?

Sony BDP-S1 Blu-Ray Player

In what is fast becoming a regular occurrence, Sony has once again delayed the arrival of their first-gen BDP-S1 Blu-ray player, this time until the end of the 2006.

Originally expected to launch as far back as May, Sony has already postponed the arrival of the highly-anticipated deck numerous times.

As of last week, the Sony Style site had listed a mid- to late-October shipping date for the BDP-S1. The site now promises delivery by early December.

Though speculation is that Sony may be holding back the unit as to not take emphasis away from the upcoming worldwide launch of the Blu-ray-driven PlayStation 3, Sony has not offered as of yet any public comment on the delay.

We'll certainly keep you posted when the BDP-S1 at last starts shipping to stores... or at least until the next delay.
