A while back we mentioned that Toshiba had plans to sell Blu-ray players overseas. Well the company made things official by joining the Blu-ray Disc Association. They will be releasing players later this year, though they did not specify which markets would be getting them.

You have to wonder how awkward it was for them to finally join the Blu-ray camp. After all, they spent years pushing HD-DVD and after giving up early last year they want to make players for the competition. As a consumer, I say the more the merrier. The more companies making players, the more room there is for competition. Competition, of course, (usually) means better prices.
