    Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive addon

    Do you think it is worth buying a spare HD-DVD drive now they are selling for around 17-20 quid.

    They are getting harder to find and I dont want to be stuck with a load of HD films with nothing to play them on.

    You'll be able to pick them up for years on fleabay.

    spare is the crucial word in the OP's post I reckon

    I think I am worried because they aren`t making them anymore and if I dont get one now they will shoot up in price then they will become harder to find.

    If there's a lot of HD-DVDs that you want for £3-£4 then it's worth it.

    I bought one but then found most of the movies I liked on HD-DVD, I already had on DVD.

    I doubt they will ever shoot up in price. After all did Betamax do that?

    The answers NO.

    Standalone HD-DVD players exist, it's not just the 360 add-on. There's at least one combo drive on the market that reads Bluray and HD-DVD.

    I can't see it being a problem imho.
