Well here's news via Digital Media Thoughts that the cost of the HD-DVD player for the Xbox 360 is suddenly cheaper. I bought mine about a month ago. I don't suppose they'll grandfather me in? Probably not...

"Today at Comic-Con International 2007, Microsoft Corp. announced it will lower the price of the popular Xbox 360(TM) HD DVD Player from $199 to $179 ERP (United States only) starting Aug. 1, 2007, and will add five free HD DVD movies for anyone purchasing an Xbox 360 HD DVD Player between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30. In addition, Microsoft further solidified the Xbox 360 as the ultimate high-definition (HD) entertainment platform, with key announcements around the HD DVD launches of "300" from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group and "Heroes: Season 1" from Universal Studios."

This is a great deal, but let me give you even more incentive: most of the Xbox 360 HD DVD drives on store shelves also include the media remote, and King Kong on HD DVD. On top of that, through the Xbox Live Rewards program (which is free), you can get an additional 10% off at Circuit City. So to sum up: the drive, the remote, and six movies, for just $162. Hell of a deal!

<i>Hell of a deal</i>

Since when is buying a known piece of crap at any price considered "a deal"?

I guess if you were suckered into buy one of these you might feel better if you can add to the victim list - make ya feel a little better?

I wouldn't go that far to call it crap, I know a few people who have never had a problem with their xbox. I don't own one myself and never will but I think calling it crap might be taking it a bit far. =p

JustaGod: Thanks for the kind words. :)

I don't feel like a victim, and I knew the format wars were in full swing when i bought it. And it's hardly a piece of crap. but again thanks so much for your contribution to the antisocial.

Dave: I agree. :)
