History of Sony Blu-ray Players

As the Blu-ray specification changed, so the early models such as the BDP-S500 became quickly outdated, which proved to be an expensive and somewhat annoying consequence for the early adopters of the format. One of the pioneering players of Blu-ray though happened to be the humble PlayStation 3 games console. This took full advantage of it’s online firmware updates to keep the console as one of the most futureproof and feature rich on the market at the time. The Playstation 3 is still a well respected player even a few years later, but it has been surpassed now in terms of usability and performance both by the other Sony Blu-ray players, and the players from the other big brands. Sonys latest range of Blu-ray players now not only are fully up to date with the latest profiles, and new features like built in wireless connectivity and quick start modes, but they also have a selection of 3D ready players available so you can enjoy pictures that not only are amazing quality, but that also jump out of the screen at you!
