Sony is actually blaming the delay on some difficulties in the copy protection on Blu-Ray discs.
I have to question that story, however. If you read the HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray comparison articles that I linked to in the Video Games - General
forum, it says that both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are using the exact same copy protection process. And I have never heard a peep about copy protection issues from the HD-DVD camp. There are in fact HD-DVD players ready to go to retail this spring, I think. Is the article wrong, or is Sony flat-out lying about this?
