We can do the whole “less filling, tastes great” debate all day, but when it comes down to it—HD DVD made a killing on Black Friday.
The HD DVD Promotional Group says post-Thanksgiving promotions have put total sales for players around the 750,000 mark. Those figures include the sales of Xbox 360 consoles, with the add-on HD DVD drive.
Hey—I finally caved in and bought one. At the price Amazon.com was selling them (with 10 free movies!), I just couldn’t resist.
Estimated price cuts found some HD DVD players starting around $200, says Twice. (I got mine for about $50 less!) Blu-ray, on the other hand, starts around $400.
