    Im looking forward to these new HD players, but this player doesnt even do 1080P… No DTS HD either?

    I also want to know about region coding regarding both DVDs and HD DVDs.

    And according to other sources its only supposed to cost 500 bucks, not 800.

    I assume this will come out in Japan for about 5 man?
    Otherwise ill give this a great big miss.

    I wish ! I would love to loose some money , But I will bet for a Yodobashi Camera in Shinjuku

  • AML

    Saw this player in Yodobashi in Akiba, but they were already sold out.
    Price is ineed 10 man yen.

    It only plays region 2 HD DVDs and DVDs. So no multy region.

    Also no actual HD DVDs out yet so theres nothing to watch on it other than upscaled DVDs.

    A bit pointles I think. And also a very overpriced player considering it doesnt do 1080p.

    I thought it was agreed that Japan would join Region 1 for HD DVD and Blu Ray?

    I thought too… I will ask toshiba regarding that

  • AML

    Hehehe, I went and ordered this player. :D

    The opportunity to start buying and watching HD DVDs now is just to great to miss.
    After all, I did stop buying DVDs about 4 or 5 months ago so I need something to watch!

    And hey, as the borg like to say: "Resistance is Futile"
