Well, the players may not be here to play the discs but that isn't deterring Sony from releasing their new Blu-ray titles on May 23.

According to Home Media Retailing, according to "Home Entertainment president Benjamin Feingold vows to stick by his previously announced May 23 street date for the studio's first batch of Blu-ray Disc titles, despite reports that the next-generation hardware needed to play the discs likely won't arrive in U.S. stores until the following month, at the earliest."

Also, Samsung might wait until June to make its first player, the PD-B1000, available in stores. The player was supposed to ship May 23.
