I guess I didn't pay attention to when the the 5 free deal started since I already had my player & it didn't apply to me.
I don't remember any BOGO at BB last summer but I did buy a bunch at the Amazon BOGO deal.
I started the Blu-Ray sales thread at the first of Nov which is well within the holiday time zone & that's when I bought all my BOGO.

The point is sales end at some point, they don't go on forever but they will return.

Sweeny should sell well in Blu.

You do know that Warner holds the distribution rights for it outside of the US.

It's HD-DVD that doesn't.

Sales last week for HDM combined were horrible. You'd think they'd have sales going on to make their numbers look decent.

If bluray wants to take over from dvd this is incredibly stupid.
