301 Disc Sony Player - Woah Momma!
You read it right, Sony are to release a 301 multi-disc DVD player! Supporting the 'Jacket Picture' feature of DVD whereby a picture of the box cover-art is embedded into the disc, the new machines will support advanced disc management functionality for those of you with 'larger than average' collections. A disc will come bundled with the machine containing art for 350 of the most popular DVDs.
Another nice new feature, and one lazy gits around the world have been after for a while is the ability to turn over double-sided DVDs without getting up! Brilliant!
Two machines will be launched, the DVP-CX870D for $899 and the DVP-CX860 for $699. No news yet as to a European launch.
