  • HD-DVD Special - tomorrow only

    November 2nd at Wal-Mart, they will be selling a Toshiba HD-DVD player for $98 and it is one day only.

    Pretty sure I didn't imagine it, but I can't find the article now that mentioned it..

    Oh yeah - first come-first served.

    It's on Dailytech.

    I have the 360 HD-DVD add on for my PC. I don't have a HD-TV nor do I plan on buying one anytime soon.

    With that said I needed to watch Megan Fox in HD.

    Edit: Maybe it's because I am on a computer monitor but I don't really care much for HD movies. I can barely tell a difference from SD movies. It makes a major difference in my PC games but I just have no interest for it in movies.

      What does the HD-DVD player have and support? HDMI outs? ATSC tuner? DVD+-RW DL suppot?

        Hell... I dunno.. just passing along the info.. It's supposed to be a 'pre-black friday' sale. I think they've been selling it for under $200 - except for this one day.

            Limit one per customer. I got one, tried to get 4, but they said no. Best of all you still get the *Buy a HD-DVD get 5 free HD movies free* deal. So $100 bucks gets you a Player and 5 Movies, cant beat that.

            I heard Best Buy is doing something similar. To bad these HD-DVD players are discontinued models, but hey, 4 HDTV's and no players, it was about time they became affordable.

                Well it would appear to me that HD-DVD will now win the format war unless Blue-Ray pulls a rabbit out of their hat. My brother went to wal-mart this morning and he said they were sold out by 7. Plus the 5 free movie deal is awesome. I was all about having a full 1080p player with all the bells and whistles, but for under a hundred bucks, who cares? It's good enough. I'm just waiting for APEX to come out with their $39 hybrid player. JK, but ya'll know it'll happen the moment you spend $300 on a player.

                  I really don't see the point of buying a player that can't even do full HD- maybe it's just me, but if I'm going to buy a HD player- wouldn't you want it to be able to do HD?

                  Also- remember that America and certain places in Europe are the only areas where HD-DVD even has a chance- it's being grossly outsold by Blu-Ray pretty much everywhere else. If that weren't enough- even now, HD-DVD has more players around- but Blu-Ray disc sales are still 2-1.

                        Too expensive. The war isn't even over yet.
