Good stuff... get them sent over as a gift or sample
Otherwise I think the limit is about £18 or you may be charged

Great deal am going to order a couple.
Surely a Blu-Ray fan boy is going to come on and tell us HD-DVD is dead and we are wasting our money soon.

hd-dvd is dead and you are wasting your money

Definitely dead, definitely wasting my money. Six movies for £55 on a hi-def format that I already own a player for (that cost me under a ton).

Long may HD-DVD die, thats all I can say.

Just ordered The Fast and the Furious and Shaun of the Dead

The engadget story is interesting, but as they state at the very beginning they are not always right. Tivo, which they refer to, is still around and is trading at 2.5x the share price that they were when put on 'deathwatch'. Obviously, this a company that does nothing else apart from their core product.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. It is commentary rather than hard fact and as such is open to bias, rumour and misinformation.

Nice, as long as I keep getting cheap films, it can come last in any race it wants to.

Here's the bottom line people.

HD-DVD is DEAD. There's no ifs or buts about it, it's dead. In America all the national chains are falling over themselves to announce that they are no longer stocking HD-DVD (Wallmart, Bestbuy, Netflicks the list goes on) now that but one of the major media companies have switched to Blue-Ray. As a result of this at the big annual tech show in Vegas the HD-DVD guys cancelled their entire presence at the show, this is not something you do unless you have accepted defeat!

But the flip side of this is.. there's gunna be a lot of HD-DVD bargains over the next 6 months as everyone tries to jump from the sinking ship and get rid of their stock. So for bargain hunters like us theres an opportunity to buy a bunch of films in High Def for very cheap prices. So in that respect HD-DVD dying might actually be an advantage for us.

So long as you understand... Any money you invest in HD-DVD now is money invested in a format which will be obsolete 6 months from now. Of course you can still play the disks for years to come, but do you want an extra box under your TV for years to come for a handful of films? What if your player breaks are you then going to hunt on ebay for a second hand replacement? Just be aware of the issues attached to buying what is a dying format.

Then why did they spend so much money advertising during the Superbowl recently? You don't do that month's after you have 'admitted defeat'

Yep that's what we are all doing. Also on the flip side it could see the format win the war if the uptake or discs and hardware rises consistantly. The HD format is cheaper to procduce, so has allowed it to undercut BlueRay hardware/discs. Obviously there is a time that you can't afford to do this anymore. The BlueRay camp is in the same position as well, taking a loss on signing studios up exclusively. Can they keep affording to do so too?

People can watch DVDs on the hardware, upscaled with marginal difference compared to a HD DVD or BlueRay player. Obviously there is a difference, but it's not big enough really for every HD owner to buy a BlueRay player. We all know how many DVDs are out there for £2

If the hardware breaks, dual format players are available, and as you say you would be able to pick a HD player up from ebay or stock clearences.

It's only as recent as this week that the format war has been decided once and for all. When in the space of 3 days the 3 biggest suppliers of DVDs in America announce they are dropping HD-DVD there is no coming back. Just check the tech news sites and now on a daily basis now there are new companies announcing they too are dropping HD-DVD. Its a massive domino effect.

I'm not saying HD-DVD is bad, like I say there's a lot of bargains out there. I'm just trying to make people aware they are buying into a dying format. I'd hate for someone to see all these cheap HD-DVDs on this site and assume now is a great time to get into the format, unaware that actually the reason they are going so cheap is because its fast becoming a sinking ship.

If you are aware of the facts, then feel free to buy. There's a lot of hot bargains around at the moment.

I see walmart are the latest big name to dump hd-dvd, expect lots more of these "bargains".

NEW YORK, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc on Friday abandoned the flailing HD DVD format, potentially ending a war over next-generation DVDs as it joined Best Buy and Netflix in supporting rival Blu-ray technology.
The format war between Toshiba Corp-backed HD DVD and Sony Corp's Blu-ray, often compared to the Betamax-VHS battle in the 1980s, has slowed the development of what is expected to be a multibillion dollar high-definition DVD industry.
It also has been a thorn in the side of retailers, which have had to commit shelf space to devices from both camps even as they field complaints from customers frustrated that some films come out in HD DVD while others are released in Blu-ray.
Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, announced the move as a phase-out at 4,000 U.S. Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores by June, saying it was responding to consumer preference.
Wal-mart's on-staff movie and gaming blogger put the future of HD DVD in stark terms.
"So ... if you bought the HD player like me, I'd retire it to the bedroom, kid's playroom, or give it to your parents to play their John Wayne standard def movies, and make space for a BD (Blu-ray disc) player for your awesome Hi Def experience," Wal-Mart blogger Susan Chronister wrote in a posting.
Consumer electronics chain Best Buy Co Inc and online video rental company Netflix Inc defected to the Blu-ray camp earlier in the week.
Next-generation DVDs and players, boasting better picture quality and more capacity, were expected to help revive the $24 billion global home DVD market. But Hollywood studios had initially split their alliances between the two camps, meaning only certain films would play on a consumer's DVD machine.
The balance of power, however, tipped toward the Sony camp in January after Time Warner Inc's Warner Bros studio said it would only release high-definition DVDs in Blu-ray format. With that, studios behind some three-quarters of DVDs are backing Blu-ray, although some release in both formats.
Toshiba responded by slashing prices of HD DVD players, but Wal-Mart's move cast doubt on the success of that strategy.
"Where are you going to sell the cheaper high-def format if not at Wal-Mart?" said Stephanie Prange, editor in chief at Home Media Magazine, who in January had cautioned against declaring Blu-ray the winner.
"The dominoes are falling pretty quickly .... I think it's over," she said, tallying up previous wins for Blu-ray at Target Corp and Blockbuster Inc as well.
Blu-ray also has support from News Corp's 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Co and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. Sony's PlayStation 3 game console can also play Blu-ray films.
To be sure, Toshiba has secured agreements with studios including NBC Universal's Universal Pictures, Viacom Inc's Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.
Microsoft Corp's Xbox 360 also currently works only with HD DVD. However, Microsoft said in January it could consider supporting Blu-ray technology at consumers' behest.
Blu-ray said the Wal-Mart move showed its format had emerged the winner.
Toshiba could not be reached to comment on Wal-Mart's move, while earlier on Friday, the Hollywood Reporter quoted unidentified industry sources as saying [COLOR=Red]Toshiba was widely expected to pull the plug on HD DVD in the coming weeks.[/COLOR]
Toshiba spokeswoman Junko Furuta said none of what was reported in the magazine had been decided. "We cannot comment on speculation," she said. (Additional reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka in Tokyo and Peter Henderson in Los Angeles; editing by Phil Berlowitz, Gerald E. McCormick, Richard Chang

to be honest i never have understood the idea of watching the same film over and over again. every time you watch it it loses its magic, so i have never been in to collecting movies. this is why i dont understand the value in sticking with hd-dvd , since all my movies are going to come from blockbuster and they only stock blu-ray. If you stau with hd-dvd , at some point , maybe next year when paramount and universal are out of thier contract , you will have to buy a blu-ray player anyway if you want to watch new movies , and then you will either have to have 2 players connected to your tv or you will have to replace your film collection .

Isnt that contradictory, you say you dont like movies over again, but then you say theres no point getting HDDVD as stores stock blu ray?

Buy a Blu Ray player to watch new movies? um DVD sales still spank out HD sales.

In which case he may as well post in every bargain thread here which advertises a DVD, HD-DVD or BR. The fact that he rents over buying has nothing to do with a format or that HD-DVD may be dead.

Yeah, we are fanboys towards one type of plastic disk over another. :whistling:

I cant speak for others, but my posts are aimed only to educate people. So long as you know HD-DVD is on its way out then feel free to buy them, just be aware of this fact.

WHy post on here if you are not into buying movies? A lot of people are so respect them. For your information I already have a PS3 and buy Blu-Ray DVDs but have a laptop with a HD-Drive and I am delighted to be able to buy HD DVD's cheaply and certainly won't be buying them on Blu-Ray when they come out after HD DVD has gone.

Toshiba, Universal and Paramount will make a joint announcement regarding their withdrawal from the HD DVD format on Monday or Tuesday, ending the format war good and proper.

Are these discs definitely region-free or is there a chance some of these could be Region A discs?

...Oh wait, wrong format. Never mind.

They certainly are although 99% of the players can be made region free therefore making region coding irrelevant.

Toshiba Cancels HD-DVD! Format War Over!

Blu-ray
+ View Large Image
It is over! The format war between Blu-ray and HD-DVD has come to an end! On NHK, Japanese TV, a reporter for the channel has made the announcement that Toshiba will halt production of HD-DVD players and conceding a loss to the Blu-ray group. He said that Toshiba will be making the formal announcement within a few days.

With Blu-ray featuring a commanding lead over HD-DVD worldwide, the choice was beyond obvious. It's estimated that Blu-ray commands 90% of the high-definition market, and with 10 million PlayStation 3s out there, it's certainly a big boost for the format. Additionally, with retailers and studio support dropping left and right, HD-DVD had no ground to stand on anymore. Toshiba will continue to liquidate HD-DVD stock, but production has been officially ended.

This loss could cost Toshiba an unspecified figure of hundreds of millions US dollars. Hopefully, Toshiba will be able to recooperate much of that loss with their Blu-ray products. As we reported earlier, it looks like Toshiba is planning Blu-ray players of their own to go on sale this Summer. :whistling:

I'll take that bet - £5 says that there are NO OFFICIAL annoucements by either Toshiba, Universal OR Paramount by the end of Tuesday. (i.e midnight Tuesday).

Hell, if you want I'll even allow Tuesday midnight Pacific time (i.e. Wednesday 8am).

Doesn't really matter when, if its the end of Tuesday or not. There will be an announcement though sadly, by Toshiba at least. Such a shame as HD DVD has eveything, price, multiregion, HD audio, online updates, HDi bonus features etc.

Reuters won't have made up a rumour, they are one the biggest news agencies on the planet and they dont rumour monger.

Reuters are reporting a rumour. It's an unnamed source confirming details of a story at the weekend when no official communication can be made doesnt strike me as being the most reliable of basis for stories.

The rumour has be passed around all the forums and blogs, but only over this weekend. I will reserve my judgements until the week starts as I imagine Toshiba PR are going to be bombarded for info tomorrow am, so there will have to be an official statement either way and more importantly, we'll be able tosee how the city reacts to the rumours. Lets face it, if Toshiba pull out, there going to lose millions and not to mention Paramount and Universal too.

It will not be a lightly made (even though it is almost inevitable) decision and I'm going to wait for the official line rather than second guess everyone else when I'm not in full possesion of inside info.

EDIT:

The reason for my bet was not that the decision won't be made, but that somebody is stating a fact which cannot be verified. As such, I was calling them on it.
