Rumor: Microsoft's Xbox 360 HD DVD Add-On To Hit 49.99?
According to engadget, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on will have a price reduction to $49.99 in the near future. I’m not so sure if even $49.99 is a good deal or not, considering it will be a paper weight down the road. If it still comes with the 5 free movies, then it would be a steal. There still is a decent library of titles for HD DVD but you have to consider the fact that an HD DVD player will be next to impossible to replace in the distant future, possibly leaving you with a pile of movies you can’t watch anymore.
Nevertheless, reports are already circulating that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 add-on drive could sink to $49.99 in the not-too-distant future, which may actually make it worth grabbing for the very respectable library of HD DVD titles already out there.
