Default Re: HD DVD about to fight back...

Toshiba wouldn't spend close to 3 million in a Superbowl ad to firesale their players. It wouldn't happen. There is more to this.

Since the Warner decision this is what I have seen the BDA do.

Put closeout obsolete 1.0 players back up to $399.

5 free movies with the purchase of a new bluray player is gone as of tomorrow.

BOGO for bluray at retailers are gone. The best I have seen is $5 off $30 titles

These actions alone have bluray never go beyond that of a niche high end product in the marketplace. If they continue down this road they will never compete with dvd.
