Korean electronics giant LG said Monday that its high-definition disk player BH200, capable of playing both HD DVD disks and Blu-ray disks, is now available in retail electronics stores throughout the U.S. as well as on online sales signs. An earlier hybrid model failed to offer interactivity support and was criticized for that omission. The new dual-format player carries a whopping retail price of $999 -- more than the combined cost of individual HD DVD and Blu-ray players when purchased separately.
