Default Microsoft discontinues Xbox 360 HD DVD Player

Microsoft to stop manufacture HD-DVD add-on for Xbox 360 and abandon HD-DVD.

Xbox 360 HD-DVD add-on is now worthless!

They will actually go up in price now, because you need one to play all those hd-dvd movies that are going to go for cheap. While some will say, just go get a blu-ray player, and I will at some time. I am not paying $300-$400 for a dvd player, I'll wait till they hit the $200 mark.

lyme, im not sure how many people YOU know who will buy a hd drive now to play current and older stuff.. but chances are they don't own one not because of price..but because the current library hasnt given them reason to buy one yet.
