Almost a year to the date after HD DVD received the mortal blow that killed off the format, a few last resources are selling off their remaining stock. If you have an HD DVD player, why not grab a few of these specials - although it "lost" the battle, it still is a great-looking format.
Right now, Blockbuster is selling over 300 HD DVD titles for just $7.99 apiece. Everything from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Zodiac. There are some really good titles on the list so if you're looking to get a little more use out of your player, this might be just the way to snag a few good discs. No word on how long those prices are good for, but can't imagine them raising the price anytime soon.
This other offer is a little more time-sensitive . . .
If, for some reason, you want to buy an HD DVD player, Frys has an Xbox 360 HD DVD player, for just $49.99. Worried that you won't find discs for it? They're throwing in the box sets of Heroes: Season One and Battlestar Galactica: Season One at no additional cost. BUT - that deal ends tonight at midnight, limit one per household.
So, go to Frys and get the player, then point your browser over to Blockbuster and stock up on a few hundred HD DVD titles. No time like the present. —Leslie Shapiro
