Was in Blockbusters this evening and they had the Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drives in brand new for £2.95. They were labelled up as pre-owned but were still sealed, having been transferred from new.

This is nationwide and in store, but wont last long at this price! Also not sure which stores have them but my local (Tile Hill, Coventry) had some!

To check if your nearest store has any, phone Blockbuster CS on 01895 236760.

yes
If you want to use as an hd-dvd drive you will need the udf 2.5 driver udf2.5+ some utils

Sorry if this is a bit dense but is a HD drive the same sort of thing as a Blu-ray drive or is it just a normal DVD drive ? Thanks
#11
It plays DVD's and HDDVD's.

If you can find one that this is the deal of the century.

It is the same as Blu-ray but it flopped as it was competing against blu-ray. They don't make any more HD DVD's any more but there is a couple of hundred HD DVD movie's out there for about £3 each. Plus they can upscale normal DVD's as well.

God dammit, why so many in-store deals? Don't they know that nobody goes to the shops any more? That's why my Blockbuster closed :thinking:

Blu-ray and HD-DVD were 2 competing formats to supercede the DVD disc, ultimately blu-ray won and the HD-DVD format backed by microsoft is quickly becoming the new betamax.

The quality on the HD-DVD discs is still on par with blu-ray and you can pick them up really cheaply now, but no new titles (AFAIK?) are to be made.

The thing that makes this fantastic is, as said previously it can double up as an external dvd-rom which if you have a netbook is an absoloute steal at £3, even if you don't it still a handy thing to have if your drive breaks etc.

While the price is obviously crazy hot, i'm not going to vote because blockbuster (for the most part) shed it's HD-DVD stock (discs & drives) almost 24 months ago.
Don't make a special trip for this, as you will almost certainly be disappointed; however if you are passing by there's no harm in popping in to check!
#18
Wow, crazy hear from a deal whereby about 4 people will get one.

That's what I'm thinking. It's an XBox 360 component so it's statistically guaranteed to break at some point. If I can get one of these, I'll just bin and replace lol :-D
#20
if this is really nationwide its is very very hot,

I will check my blockbuster tomorow and if they have it in stock then heat and rep will be added. Most of these deals are always store specific and very few in number anyway. got a product or sku number please?
#21
And pretty sure some tw8t will buy the lot in a store if they are in stock like happened with the blu-rays @ my local game station over christmas!
#22
Hot if truely nationwide, highly doubt this tho, will probably only be a few stores
#23
Worth it just for the remote!

4 people is an overstatement :-D

I'm glad that was the first post rather than the usual "Dead format - Cold" rubbish. :w00t:

It's just a drive, it doesn't do any upscaling. Upscaling is done by whatever you plug it in to.

OP only ever posts Blockbuster deals :? self promo :whistling:
#27
Even tho my blockbuster is only half a mile up the road, I won't even bother looking.
has anyone actually found this? As can't see this possible
#28
Another one in a million deal with no actual proof of it existing, yet its getting hotter by the second.

This site is turning into complete trash lately :thinking:
#29
Hot if you are lucky enough to get this.

Blockbuster prices are nationwide, not store specific. Never happy though, it seems.

What's it to do with you? Are you always this irritating to members with low post counts that may well work there?

Nothing worng with an employee giving a head up on an deal... but this one is suspicious.
OP only ever posts and comments on his own Blockbuster deals .....
Maybe they;re hoping you'll pop in looking for a cheap HD that doesnt exist, and end up renting a load of movies instead :whistling:

This deal has nothing to do with what the xbox 360 can or cannot do :?

well id actually does, but instead of trying to be clever why not just tell me what it is for or does?
#39
Yeah, i've got one and you can't boot xbox games from it. Anything else is fine.

This plays HD-DVD's.

They don't make HD-DVD's anymore - see here

Hence the price.
