HD DVD add-on for XBOX360 is dead.

I couldn’t report on the death of HDDVD cause I wasn’t here. Anyway now I am sad to report the death of the HD-DVD add on for the XBOX 360. It is no longer available.

XBOX360 HD DVD Player now $129.99

Linky Winky just in: The Xbox 360 HD DVD Player price has dropped from $179.99 to $129.99 (U.S. MSRP.) This new price is effective immediately in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Combine the new price with the 5 free HD DVD offer and it’s a pretty good deal.

OMG! HD-DVD has more features

HD DVD Fights back!

Amazon has a High Def offer with movies for as low as $14.99!   Get them while you can! (unless you have blu-ray… or don’t have anything….)

This is after Warner went Blu-Ray exclusive.

Is this a good move? Or is it just a waste of time? Drop in a comment!

From Engadget:

The HD-A3 MSRP has dropped to $149.99, the 1080p-capable HD-A30 to $199.99, and the top of the line HD-A35 to $299.99. Combined with an extended “perfect offer” of 5 free HD DVDs with every purchase, Toshiba’s HD DVD Concierge service, and a sudden 50% off sale on Amazon, it seems this format will not go quietly into the dark. Fire sale to clear suddenly obsolete inventory or real chance to hang onto its remaining supporters? This could be the best — or worst — time to pick a side in the HD war.

Press release after the break:

Microsoft following Warner?

  —–> ?

With the announcement of Warner Bros going Blu-Ray and murmurings of Paramount going the same way, Microsoft has revealed that should the tide turn towards Sony’s technology it would consider supporting the Blu-ray with the Xbox 360. (Duh!)

Microsoft has previously aligned themselves to Toshiba’s technology, offering an HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360. So this means its R.I.P for the built-in HD DVD drive?

More and More blows to the HD DVD side….. Could this be the final call?


CES 2008 | Sony | Handycam HDR-SR12

The two top-of-the-line models, the SR11 and SR12, both incorporate Sony’s highest-resolution 1/3.15-inch 5-megapixel ClearVid CMOS sensor and the Face Detection capabilities which debut in the 2008 camcorders. Other specs include a 12X zoom lens and 3.2-inch LCD. The two models differ only by hard disk size: 60GB for the $1,199 SR11 and 120GB for the $1,399 SR12. Both are slated to ship in March.

Replacing the SR5 at the $999 price point, the SR10 keeps the same 2-megapixel CMOS sensor and 2.7-inch LCD of its predecessor, but ups the zoom to 15x. It too should ship in March.
