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

I guess the ultimate question is: have they been negotiating with studios this time and are they close to a deal?
Well actually
1. They did have a price cut on players
2. The week after the BOGO sale at Best Buy & Amazon they were only 26% to Blu-Rays 74%!
Granted that's up from the previous weeks 82%/18% & 83%/17% but not by enough to really matter.
That's hardly "a bunch of software sales".
3. The Super Bowl ad was to local markets not nationwide

If hd-dvd is really about to fight back they better get on with it!!

With the Amazon BOGO sale continuing this week if those numbers don't go up big time, well you get the idea!
