I knew that Sony had had some promotions in Europe for consumers to trade in their HD DVD player for a BD player. Though I can not understand why they would start a new such offer now in Switzerland:
"if you buy either the BDP-S500 or BDP-S300 Blu-ray player before the end of March, you'll then be able to send in your HD DVD player for Sony to recycle and receive a discount of 200 Swiss Francs (about $190), plus both the Spider-Man trilogy and Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy on Blu-ray." http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/03/04...s-in-switzerl/
Why would they do this now? Never happen here!
Apparently Circuit City is letting customers return their HD DVD players (purchased within 90 days instead of the usual 30) for a full credit. http://gizmodo.com/363974/circuit-ci...-says-employee
