it´s already down to the price M$ said it would be in most countries
except over here (who knows it will happen over here, Amazon only reduced it to 64.99 GBP)
To quote gamerscoreblog.com:
"in most regions, you can pick up the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player for an estimated price of $49.99 /€49.99 (and equivalent local currencies)."

If you buy from Amazon.de you also get 2 years warranty which you don´t
get if you buy over here.

LOL people still vote cold...Nice
Fanboys are just everywhere.
I have a Ps3 at home and a 360 HD DVD addon.
For 40 Pounds you CANT complain cuz it plays HD DVDs
AND upscales normal DVDs. And if THAT is not a decent price
then I don´t know....

as in the OP is worth it to people who want to pick up a cheap player and HD-DVD's while there still available.

Voted Hot

Worth picking up if you want to get a few Cheap HD-DVD disc's but will be as useful as a Betamax VCR in six month from now.

Incorrect. It plays DVDs, which will be around a lot longer than six months. Also, for those of us with an EEE PC or similar with a need for an external disc drive, this is a great unit.

The 360 does the upscaling anyway if you are using hdmi or vga.

why are my HD DVDs going to stop working 6 months from now?

This is a good price compared with how much some places are trying to sell them at but do you really want to be watching a DVD through your 360 - I think 360's are so noisy - I've got one and its great for gaming but you want to turn it off when your watching the telly! Maybe its just me but it gets on my nerves!?

Microsofts official blog, states that $49.99 or 49.99 EUROS is now the rrp.

Suggest this is in fact therefore a cold deal and wait until all uk dealers drop their prices in the next 24-48 hours

because the format is basically dead. Your discs will still work but they will stop being made. Toshiba has already said that they are stopping manufacturing of the players as well.

So that means that the players and discs will automatically shut down and never work again? :roll:

he never said they would !

a betamax vcr is still useful for watching betamax tapes!

in fact as it can still record therefore get new material, it is more useful than an hd-dvd player will be therefore it isnt even a put down!

@Sparksalot, do you honestly think the readers of this don't already know that? In fact, don't you think that's exactly the reason this is so cheap?!

@ikduncan, I'll believe it when I see it. You seem to forget this is fortress Britain where we are expected to pay over the odds...

nope but all those hdi online features, hd-dvd fan boys love to go on about, will "probably " not work as the websites they rely on wont be there soon enough..

Nice find, Amazon.com have them at $59.50 (£30.25) and Best Buy have them at $49 (£24.90). No news on what they will drop to over here yet though.

It's the cheapest price available to the UK at the time of entering.. how can you call that a cold deal??

i actually called amazon.co.uk this morning and asked them to confirm when they are going to reduce to the new rrp, i was told they will check with MS and will confirm the price cut.

You can buy a HD-DVD from any country as it'll work on your 360. The HD-DVDs are also region free so you can order them from any country.

cos its been announced it will come down in uk, and will have better warranty, and amazon price match etc etc, no shipping costs etc etc

"$49.99 /€49.99" (and equivalent local currencies).

lol 49.99 quid then no doubt

voted hot for EU price

makes much more sense to order one from amazon uk now, and use the 30 day price match to get the money back.

No one announced that it will come down in the UK.
It might, but no one has announced it.

And even if it comes down to 49.99 GBP over here, the Amazon.de deal is still cheaper
and the warranty is longer. (2 years compared to 1 year over here)

Whatever, have i been proved wrong with any of this hd-dvd nonsense in the past? evetrything i have said has come true, so if you wanna get one now go for it, you ronly looking at a few quid difference i guess at the end of the day.

I predict uk price will be £39.99 with free shipping however!!

With the cheap films posted yesterday, this is becoming a really cheap way to get into HD.
Voted hot hot hot!

if you buy it from the US you'll get it a lot cheaper.

ah yes - but risk import tax!
buying within the EU = no import vat

If it came down to 39.99 GBP over here ...
That would make the one from germany cost about 67 pence more ...
But you have an additional year of warranty.
Very good selling point when it comes to M$ products.

:whistling:

I have a 360 without HDMI port, it just has the compenent cable, if I buy a 360 HD Player, will this upscale, does the 360 have to be powered on to i.e. noisey fans and all?
