Default New Sony Blu-Ray players with WiFi

Sony BDP-S560


Sony BDP-S360


From CNET,

Standalone Blu-ray players have finally started catching up to the Sony PlayStation 3 for Blu-ray playback, but Sony's game console is still the only Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi.
Luckily, that appears to be changing in 2009, with both Samsung and LG announcing wireless Blu-ray players at CES 2009. And Monday Sony announced its own wireless Blu-ray player, the BDP-S560. The BDP-S560 includes 802.11N Wi-Fi, which means you'll be able to access BD-Live features without dragging an Ethernet cord into your living room.
The wireless connection can also be used for firmware updates and accessing photos on other DLNA-enabled devices. The press release doesn't state whether music or movies can be streamed, but we assume it's limited to just photo streaming, like the company's DLNA televisions from last year. Photos can also be accessed via a front-panel USB port.
The BDP-S560 will include onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, but the press release doesn't mention whether it will have 7.1 analog outputs like its predecessor, the BDP-S550. The BDP-S560 will be available this summer for about $350.
Sony also announced the step-down BDP-S360, which lacks Wi-Fi and the front-panel USB port. Not many details were released on the BDP-S360, except that it will include onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio and feature a $300 price tag when it comes out this summer.

The new Sony player with Wifi does not have 7.1 analog outputs the Sony Style site has a picture of the back of the unit it does not show 7.1 outputs.

While I'm quite adamant about whether or not I would ever need a WiFi on my player, this is a pretty cool deal - if not a bit too expensive that is.

I guess this is for BD live. My Blu-ray player has both wired and wireless. But then it is a HTPC. I guess that's cheating a bit.
