    No more advantage for Sony, Microsoft will adopt blue ray

    I saw aftermarket blu-ray disk drives for $299 on some computer parts website.

    Players would be as cheap as adding moderately low-end mobo/processor/RAM/firmware/graphics components and putting it in a box.

    Take your cheapest 1080p-upconverting DVD player, currently about $40, then add $280 for the drive price difference. $320 net entry-level blu-ray solution.

    And the drives will only get cheaper, in a hurry, now that both the manufacturing and consuming worlds are aligned on one format.
