It's not like there has been any shortage of deals on HD DVD hardware over the past few months or anything, but now that Toshiba (and almost everyone else on the planet) has officially yanked support for the format, prices are beginning to plummet en masse. First on the docket is the HD-A3 at Circuit City, which now sits at just $99.99 and comes with seven free titles, two of which are 300 and Bourne Identity. So yeah, if you've been waiting for this moment to snap up the failed format for cheap, hop on in -- but if we were betting souls, we'd say holding out just a wee bit longer would actually be in your wallet's best interest.
If your already invested in hd-dvd there will be some killer deals out there for a back up player & soon the software will be dirt cheap.
I saw the Toshiba HD-D3 at Sam's last night for ~$128. I am waiting to see the price drop more on players so that I can get a back up player or just one for the office. It has definitely got to be one that supports 1080p.
