Sony: New Blu-ray players in the second half of 2008

Sony will continue its line of Blu-ray players until late summer or early fall 2008. The current players do not support profile 1.1 or BD Live.

The company said that two new players are planned to replace the current line-up. The models are dubbed Sapphire 3 and Sapphire 4. Both are similar, but the latter will have more elite audio abilities. They will both support profile 1.1 and BD Live.

Pricing was not available at press time.
