So my labors on a Blu-ray Consumer Guide for October were interrupted by a Playstation 3 issue, e.g., the Blu-ray function of the machine ceased to function, and I was briefly tempted by the blandishments of no-doubt fly-by-night non-authorized "repair" centers promising laser replacement for less than forty bucks on their ads, and then ominously requesting a walk-in for an estimate when actually contacted. So I bit the bullet and went through Sony its own self, which offered me two options: repair for around $125, or a NEW UPGRADED model for about $100. What a world. Of course I sprang (sprung?) for the latter in spite of being relatively hard-pressed to afford either. In any event, these things take time, and I wound up losing about ten days worth of domestic Blu-ray viewing so it looks like an October Guide is gonna...be a bit of a stretch. So it's more likely that the next Blu-ray CG will be something along the lines of a...wait for it...Holiday Edition. In which the Blu-ray of which there's a tiny picture of the box art above and left will be considered. Aren't you excited, sorta? Stay tuned.
