RIP - Betamax


Active Member
Sony have announced they are ceasing the manufacture of Betamax VCRS due to the success of DVD. :(

Now remembering a quote from Sony "We'll stop making Beta when Vhs dies" byebye Vhs as well:cool:

I never knew Sony were still maufacturing Betamax VCRs
(for the home consumer market?).

I haven't seen anyone selling one for years.

If a recent newspaper article on this subject is to be believed, they sold 3,000 new ones last year (I think it said, in the UK - but I confess to finding that hard to believe).
