Pssst. Hey you. Yeah you buddy. Wanna cheap Blu-ray player? Amazon is selling Samsung's BD-P1000 for a mere $499. While we still don't know what side is going to walk away from this whole war thing, less then five hundard dollars seems a bit easier on the pocketbook to enjoy movies on your HDTV even if the format doesn't last forever. So if using the PS3 as a Blu-ray player doesn't interest you but you still want a cheap Blu-ray player, this offer might fit the bill.
