The new £80k Blu-ray player that's already out of date
Here’s something that definitely won’t be added to the Bitterwallet Christmas List – a Blu-ray player that costs a cool £80,000
It goes by the name of the Goldmund Eidos Reference Blue although if you ask us it looks like a reel-to-reel tape recorder from Ancient Greece. But with a price tag like that, you’d expect it to be a shit-hot piece of kit, right? Wrong.
Somewhat foolishly, the makers have forgotten to equip the thing with Internet access or the new BD-Live feature. So it’s about as useful as… a reel-to-reel tape recorder from Ancient Greece
Luckily for Goldmund, they’ve only bothered to make 50 of the things, but are there really 50 people in the world rich and thick enough to get one of these? If you’re answering yes and have one, do yourself a favour and smash it it smithereens. Actually, erm, send it to us and we’ll do it for you.
