laserdiscPioneer has announced that they will halt production of laserdisk players once the production of the last 3000 units has finished.

My my, Laserdisks was introduced in the 1980’s and I actually thought that production of players had stopped long ago as laserdisks (the media) was no longer being produced.

I sadly never owned one which is a bit of a shame as the quality was supposed to be better than DVD, but with the introduction of HD, I guess time finally caught up with the aging Laserdisk.

Anyway if you just have to have a Laserdisk player then this is the last call unless you are Ebay’ing, or maybe you should join the new millinium and try on Blueray.

RIP Laserdisk 🙂
