We all got a good whiff of Blu-ray Profile 2
with BD-Live at CES
, so the only thing to check out with Sony's new BDP-S350 and BDP-S550
was their size and shape -- we're pleased to say these babies seem significantly smaller than most Blu-ray players out there, and won't look as out of place. Unfortunately, the demos were cooked and they were actually using a PS3 playing a DVD to show off BD-Live "running" from an S550, which was kind of cheap to say the least. Still, if ever there were stand-alone Blu-ray players to get excited about -- and a time to get excited about them -- this is it.
