Posted on February 26, 2008, Chris Xbox 360 HD DVD Player Now (For the Most Part) $50
In a move that makes me continue to weep about paying full price late last year, Microsoft has announced that, in most regions, the HD DVD add-on for Xbox 360 is now $49.99. A few details about the accessory, as posted on Gamerscore Blog:
- Supports existing HD DVD movie discs (more than 400 titles currently available in the US and 1,000 internationally) – many of which are combo discs that also include the DVD versions of the film
- Includes the Xbox 360 Media Remote Control (a $20 value – US ERP)
- Includes the King Kong HD DVD (a $20 value – US ERP) (Available in North America Only)
- Plays standard DVDs, allowing you to have a game and a movie ready to play at all times
- Provides an additional USB port for your Xbox 360 and includes USB 2.0 cable
In addition to King Kong, that five free movies offer is still valid as long as you purchase it by February 28 and get your request postmarked by the end of March. Like I said yesterday, an HD DVD player, remote and six HD movies is a pretty good deal for $50.
