Lack of titles even when release earlier...still have to wait for the titles to come out in Dec iirc? But its good to know many manufacturers churning out the goods sooner rather than later.

Ya, at US$3,327 is madness. Also need a new thicker Premium grade HDMI cable and new 4K projector with HDR and wider colour space.

Of the lot, I might be keen on Kingsman and Maze Runner...

If they had Fifth Element on true 4k and Atmos, that will certainly be a keeper..

SO close, yet so far.

Saw on the shelf...it's available BUT THE MENUS ARE ALL IN JAPANESE!!  No go!



No Blu Ray Software.  They use this as a 4K video recorder for TV programs for now.

Kings men - now out on 4K .. For preorder at usd 29.99
Not too bad if anyone is an early adopter.
I think the makers are keen to keep things more affordable than when Blu Ray first came out ..

So for a HT enthusiast with moderate funding, one can get 4K for under 10k with a 75-75" flatscreen, a 4K player and spend the rest on discs...
Of course if we wait it will get cheaper. And for an even bigger screen a projector and 4K player can still be hard for under 10k..

Those folks who have no intention to upgrade their non HDCP 2.2 AVR's anytime soon will opt for the Panny player due to it's twin HDMI output feature. I'm hoping it's launched for less than US$500 in spring and will gladly pick a unit up during my next US trip.
