Posted on August 2, 2007, William Xbox 360 HD DVD Player Sales On The Rise
Since Microsoft took $20 off the price of the HD DVD player and threw in 5 free movies, sales have gone up over 1000% on Amazon. It’s really a “no brainer” that sales have gone up, but I am not sure how long the upswing will last. Personally, I prefer Blu-ray so it’s a little frustrating that my favorite system is the 360, yet you have to purchase HD movies for it. I’m hoping that once Blu-ray wins the high definition war, that we’ll get a BR player for the 360. For the current price, the HD DVD player with 5 free movies is still a good buy.
We just learned what happens when you discount the price on the Xbox 360 HD DVD player and throw in five free movies. Our conclusion, they sell more than they did before. Looking through Amazon.com’s sales rank movers and shakers, the Xbox 360 HD DVD player’s sales increased over 1,000% since the $20 price drop. Who needs economics 101 when you’ve got Amazon.com. And if you’re looking to cash in on this super sweet deal, give your local Best Buy a try, some stores are offering it for $149.
