Yet Another Delay for Blu-Ray Players, Says Chinese Paper
And the delays keep coming for Sony's Blu-ray high-definition DVD system. China's Commercial Times newspaper is reporting that Sony's production facilities have not been able to meet the demand for the diode that generates the blue laser at the heart of the HD system. Both Sony's own plants and those of Japan's Nichia Corp., the only two suppliers of the diodes, have been plagued by production problems, the newspaper said. The supply problem, it observed, could not only delay production of Blu-ray DVD players for Sony and other manufacturers, but could also delay the release of PlayStation 3 models, now scheduled for November.0

Now granted this doesn't mean anything necessarily; they could iron out these issues and have accounted for this  slow ramp-up in their initial plans.  But it's also potentially a big setback; I don't see how they can let the PS3 release be delayed by a few weeks and potentially miss Christmas?[/quote]

This could be a reason why they are delaying Sony's own stand alone player. They need all the production they can get of these diodes to make enough PS3's

If they can't make enough Blu-Ray players to meet demand, well gosh, HD-DVD could just win the next-gen war (assuming that either takes off that is).  I personally hope that they are able to get production going; moreso because the PS3 coming out will mean more 360 games due to the fact some developers are going to hold off on releasing games so it can come out on every platform at once...
