    spandexman, that's two threads in two seconds that I've read where you are breaking the "five word minimum" rule. Forums are to discuss things, so start the discussions rather than just posting news links.

    I still think at $199, it's a bit of a rip-off, but then I guess it is optional.

    Just too bad it's King Kong and not Lord of the Rings.

    I disagree, give me King Kong any day! Still, different people, different tastes and all that! I would gladly write "Bored of the Rings" if I had the chance...wait, I just did

    I'm still not convinced to buy it even though its a good deal. I still don't want to buy till there is a winner of the format war. Also, I really didn't like King Kong all that much.

    I'm definetely getting one, just the sheer number of titles confirmed for HD DVD is enough for me

    129 for uk is incredible price, practicaly pocket change and well within mass market.

    With KK and media remote it looks even more of a steal.

    For the first time HD-DVD looks like a competative format

    This is actually a good deal and alot more HD-DVD titles will be released this holiday. The sales of HD-DVD players are going to go up this holiday. Because I allready have a 360, this offer is looking better then a stand alone player.

    Yeah and once I have that the Ps3 looks alot less atractive.

    I'm thinking I'll get the HD-DVD drive and then wait untill PS3 starts to perform and pick up one 2nd hand for half the price in a year or so. Any one want to buy my UK preorder????

    Keep in mind the universal remote is $20.00 and a HD DVD movie is $35.00. So its a pretty good deal.

    I hated king kong, why couldnt they let you choose the free movie? For gods sake I'd rather have tokyo drift, I HATED king kong.

    I'd prefer full metal jacket, goodfellas, or even dazed and confused

    for all those saying it's a good deal, you realize you need either a 360 or a pc right? and the us price is in line with the $500-$600 ps3 if i see any of you rippin on the ps3's price i'll know who the hypocrites are and who aren't. enjoy though.

    Its because you have a CHOICE to buy it, truth is %10> of xbox360 owners will actually BUY it, those people arent FORCED to spend the extra $200

    I'm no longer Sony's core market. I bought a 360 because I didn't want to wait a year and a half before playing in HD on my plasma.

    for me it looks cheap as chips but if I had waited for the PS3 it wouldn't.

    It does however make me think twice about getting a PS3 as well.

    for 200 € i would rather spent another 300 € to get the ps3 if i really need next gen dvd. i burned myself once with a saturn vcd addon, won't do the same mistake twice. of course i am waiting. here in germany sdtv is still the norm. with all this aacs and hdcp crap i will prefer dvd for now.
    When it comes to porting Final Fantasy XIII to Xbox 360, Square's of the opinion that it's not the size of the disc that matters; it's how you use it.

    For someone like me who has a 360 and is definitely getting a PS3 this is totally worthless. You better believe that 200 bucks is going towards a PS3 and not an add-on for my 360. I'm already going to pay 600 for a console, I don't need to have paid 600 on each of the two.

    If (I stress if) Blu-ray fails, at least you have cheap HD-DVD option

    Bluray fails IF the PS3 fails. We'll have to wait and see if that happens. Aye?

    I guess this is a good deal. I loved King Kong. I just don't know about buying this add-on when the money could go towards a lower end PS3, even though i'm waiting for the 60gb PS3.

    I'll ask my bro if he wants the HD-DVD add-on as the Xbox360 is mostly his, even though I pretty much own it. <--- don't ask how that happened.

    YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOU OPPIONNION.
    mY OPPINION IS THOUGH, THAT BLURAY WAS NEEDED FOR PS3. LOOK AT LIAR. THAT ONE DEMO LEVEL WAS 4 GB ALONE ( LAIR RUNS 1080p NATIVE, AND SOME THINGS LIKE THE "GREAT PLANES DRAGON" ( I BELIVEE ITS CALLED) HAVE MORE DETAIL THAN EVEN THE E3 2006 TRAILER SHOWED ( GO TO THE IGN INTERVEW FOR MORE DETIALS)
    rESISTANCE IS ALREADY > 22GB AND DEVS BELIEVE THAT IT'LL BE !35 GB. THIS IS WITH COMPRESSION TOO, AND THESE ARE 1ST GEN GAMES
