Report: Blue Laser Shortage May Affect Blu-ray/HD DVD Battle

Optical drive manufacturers have indicated that yield rates for blue laser diodes have been much behind demand. This shortage has forced Sony to suspend its blue laser shipments so that they can be used in the supposed 4 million PS3s being produced this year.

Not really for PS3 since Sony just delayed their standalone player, so PS3 doesn't get hurt just Sony's other Blu-Ray players/recorders.

But it does suck all around, it COULD influence the PS3 shipment.

Actually, what I am thinking, is that Sony bought so many of the the blu ray lazer diods for the PS3, that it is actually causing a shortage for stand alone players. I could of course be wrong, and that might be speculation, but it makes perfect sense to me...
