Agreed, but it is still dead technology like betamax, laser discs, mini discs, DAT tape, 8 track tapes, VHS and so on....

This is exactly where Blu Ray needs to be in pricing, then it will take off and replace DVDs

Default Re: HD DVD - the best deal in HD

While I agree that Blu-Ray movie prices are too high your dreaming to think they'll be $8-$12, you can't buy new release DVD's at that price.
You can get deals on Blu-Ray movies, I have around 130 Blu-Rays & 95% were bought on sale with an average price of around $17.

I'm glad you guys are getting great prices on hd-dvd movies but eventually they will be expensive coasters when your players crap out.

If it was me I'd not buy any more hd-dvd movies & save up for the inevitable 2 for 1 sales this holiday season on Blu-ray movies.
I'm sure there will be a big push to sell players & movies this year.

I think that by the time my 3 players die, I will have had plenty of time to enjoy all the HD DVD movies that I have. I still prefer to buy blu-ray, but not when the same title can be had on HD DVD for 1/3 or less the price of the blu-ray title.

Also, I saw at Fry's (for you X-box users) that they are selling the HD DVD drive for X-box for ~$39.

130 Blu rays at $17 whoa I am impressed, where did you buy them!

I bought a few blu rays from Frys at $13. Stargate, Terminator 2, ID4, and a few others. Amazon is still pricey even with 40% discount $25 average

Agree why invest in an old technology, I have a DAT that is not working anymore and tapes I can't play either!!

Let's hope so, I heard WB is supposed to lower prices they will have to if they want to move merchandise

I buy almost all my Blu-Ray movies online at Amazon, Tower, JR, Deep discount, etc.
The only movies I have that were not on sale were new release movies & those were still much less than the cost at a B&M store, all the rest were bought on sale & at buy 1 get 1 & buy 2 get 1 free.
If you keep an eye out for sales you can get them at good prices.
