Sony: Here is a good reason to finalise your "standard" before going to market….

I was reading an interesting post on two new Blu-ray releases.

It seems that there are issues with BD+ on existing units. And of course since Ethernet ports are optional for Blu-ray players it is non-trivial to perform a firmware update.

I can see some punters getting pretty pissed off trying to update their players, this can only serve to help the HD DVD camp.

All of this comes about because Sony were well behind HD DVD on finalising their spec and didn’t want to let the HD DVD guys enjoy the lead. So, they rushed the standard to market without finalising it and now it looks like it is going to bite them in the ass….
