Sony and Nichia have jointly developed a smaller, less costly Blu-ray reader/writer module. The company expects the new laser unit, which is just 3mm thick, to appear in the company's 9.5mm laptop drives sometime this year. A smaller, less costly Blu-ray laser unit could undoubtedly reduce production costs for the PlayStation 3, allowing Sony to drop the price even further should it choose to do so.
