Sony are the latest with a Google-powered connected Blu-ray player as well as the NSZ-GS7 Network Media Player. The NSZ-GS7 Network Media Player and NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray Disc Player arrive in Summer in the US and Europe.

One of the more notable improvements is a touch-sensitive remote control with backlit QWERTY keyboard and three-axis motion sensor for gaming. Sony’s NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray Disc Player also includes a voice search feature, if all of that clicking feels like too much work. NSZ-GS7 Network Media Player
