If the Xbox 360 is your gaming console of choice and you’ve been thinking of upgrading your HDTV to some high-def DVD gaming and viewing, starting Aug. 1 would be a good time to do so.
The HD DVD Promotional Group has announced that the price of the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive will drop from $199 to $179 at that time, and purchasers can be off and running on their HD DVD collection. Microsoft is applying the same deal Toshiba previously made on its HD DVD players, whereby purchasers can choose five free titles from a selection of 15 via a mail-in offer.
The price reduction coincides with the group’s touting of the upcoming HD DVD releases of ‘Heroes: Season 1,’ ‘300’ and ‘Star Trek: The Original Series.’
