After looking at the S360 offer, noticed the S560 with built-in WiFi. Seems an excellent price. Can't find it this cheap anywhere. Available for home delivery only. Worth considering as nowhere seems to have the S360 in stock!!

In addition to built-in 802.11n WiFi, the Sony BDPS560 Blu-ray Player boasts a range of features to help you get the most from your home entertainment.

Certainly looks a good price - am looking for the 3d upgradable model myself (470 or 570) but for a wifi enabled player from a reputable manufacturer who'll update the firmware regularly you won't go far wrong.

You're right, 3D is definately where it is going and I think you will see many standard BD players tumble in price in the near future.

Indeed 3d wont be for everyone though, If you have watched it at the cinema, like avatar for a few hours, it can get uncomfy.

I bought one of these from a Co-op deal way last year for even less!

TBH not really worth paying this sort of price nowadays just to get wi-fi. If it was me, I'd go for a newer model [like the 370] instead.....

But if you have a old amp this has analogue outputs thus no need to upgrade to get hd sound which you don't normally for a player at this price.

I was in the same boat, wanted the built in wifi rather than splash out on the dongle.

I listed the 570 here £199 delivered in case you're interested.

I've heard so many positive things regards the S370, but would like 3D also. Does anyone know if the S470 is identical to the S370 with the exception of 3D capability?

It's also this price at Dixons online in case the PC World price dies....

I can only see from one eye, so 3D Is no use to me, but
iv'e heard that there is an upgrade to the PS3 software out soon that will enable it to play 3D blurays,
So If you've got a PS3 no need to spend any money.

Can I clarify taht - my amp (Yamaha RXV396) has no HDMI inputs so a big issue for me a the mo is that I can't pass TrueHD sound to it from my PS3. So I am reduced to Pro-Logic sound on my blu rays at the mo.

Will this player allow me to get TrueHD sound over one of the inputs into my current amp?

Where did you read this?? I was under the belive that the PS3 has been firmware updated to output a 3D image (such as for gaming) to a suitable televison if needed, but the blu-ray player itself is not capable of reading 3D blu-rays.

Can anyone confirm which is actually true please, as misinformation on sites such as these can prove costly for trusting members.

The Sony BDP-S560 does not have 5.1/7.1 analogue out. Just looked it up on the superfi site.
I think the BDP-S760 has the analogues out.

I totally agree with what you are saying. I am not overly bothered about 3d either at the minute, but that seems to be the way the industry is going and everything non-3d is already tumbling in price!!

As far as I know this will not do any streaming over the net. Only for updating firmware or BD live

I suffer from agoraphobia/vertigo problems, never been on an aeroplane etc so I really thought 3D would make me sick, I loved Avatar (er the 3D effects) though and I didn't feel sick at all. So if I can stand it I think most people can, at least that's my theory.

The deal I posted is still available and it's the same price

The PS3 firmware upgrade was released in April. It's ready to rock n roll. 3D game releases are imminent - some announcements already this week at E3.
