The format war wages on...

In a story from DVD Town, it looks like Samsung has delayed "its HD DVD/Blu-ray combo player" and it has decided not to manufacture the BD-2400 player any longer. This player was one of the high-end models.

It now looks like there will be "a December release of the BD-U5000 combo player in the US, with the European debut taking place early in 2008." The player will sell for around $1000.

Samsung only plans to "carry the cheaper BD-1400."
