Funai blu-ray player: $298 at Wal-Mart

Can’t afford the high prices for blu-ray players? well a slightly cheaper alternative has been spotted at Wal-Mart in the form of the $298 Sylvania or Magnavox branded Funai MB500 blu-ray player.

It looks like a 1980’s set top cable box, only supports blu-ray profile 1.1, probably sounds awful, and still costs $100 more than a great HD-DVD player did a few months back.

Thanks again Sony for buying your way to victory for your inferior product over HD-DVD.
