Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?
I think the price point is indicitive of preceive value of the product to the buying public.
The same thing happened with CD players. When I worked for NV Philips we sold the Magnavox (Philips machine in a magnavox packaging) for $300 at Christmas and by Easter they were about $125 and flying off the shelf!!
Not everyone is an audio or videophile like the members of our forums. I think a lot of this sell through is really utility
