Even though this is only \"HD Trailer Tuesday's\" third run since we started it back up, we can honestly say it is going to be hard for any other week to beat the quality of the three high-def trailers Apple added this week.

Samsung has now confirmed rumors that the company's BD-P1000, its first consumer Blu-ray disc player, will be delayed from its original ship date of May 23 to sometime in late June

I think we've heard this before, but in case you missed it the first time around, word on the street is that high-def gaming will be the primary driver for HDTV growth.
