I think the smartest thing Microsoft could do is release a Blu-Ray player that's 200 dollars. Not just for the X360 but an all-around player. The most people you can sway away from buying a PS3 the better for them. And better for us too!

It still blows my mind how people got a $400 over a $150 player.

maybe customers were told to get blu-ray OR customers knew blu-ray has more studios, more movies to choose when only two major studios backing hd dvd. maybe price doesn't matter and they say "it'll be good investment". i don't know about profile 1.0 if they were aware of. maybe hd dvd didn't have enough advertising. who knows how they end up buying blu-ray players for $400 or so. but hd dvd players sale did beat blu-ray players sale...

i'm still waiting if microsoft is going to announce blu-ray addon for xbox 360. if they plan to sell it for $199, that will force other makers to drop price on current blu-ray players. then everyone will be happy.
