    Xbox 360 HD DVD player sales rise 1000% rise due to price drop

    Xbox 360 HD DVD player sales rise 1000% rise due to price drop

    http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=19435
    Leading internet Amazon retailer has experienced a 1000% sales rise on the Xbox 360 HD DVD player peripheral following an Official price cut and inclusion of five free movies. The price cut may have only been $20 but its seeems to have got gamers going crazy for some High Definition movie loving.

    Impressive, I would of bought one, but I want to invest in the dominant next-generation platform, which still seems undecided.

    I'm not into the whole "next generation" of movie watching thing be it Blu-Ray or HD DVD. I could care less about either, but good for them if it helped the sales.

    HD movies are expensive at this point and the selection (well locally here for Blu-Ray) is pretty unappealing but the image quality from the PS3's Blu-Ray player is staggeringly good, as is HD DVD I would imagine. It's worth a look in.

    I've seen both Blu-Ray and HD DVD and I don't care for either. Sure it looks good but I don't really care.

    considering they sold like NONE in the last month selling 5-10 more would equal a 1000% increase so who cares..

    HD-DVD is dead been dead just clearing out stock, and those who think otherwise are plain and simple hoping hd-dvd does something dramatic but with almost EVERY major retailer stocking on BLU-RAY players on shelves starting August and everyone basically expect universal supporting the format its over..

    on a side note:

    PS3 80GB sales increase 5,685% at Amazon does that mean Blu-Ray is better?

    *Explosive SIGH!* Seriously...why are people STILL being fooled that you need HDMI for 1080p? Both Component and VGA are quite capable of the required bandwidth for 1080p...

    Anyway, that's the A/v-phile in me being quiet....for now.

    1080i and 1080p contain the exact same amount of detail at 24fps in the case of movies, unless of course your TV fails at proper de-interlacing.

    all X360 models can output 1080p through vga for movies and component, vga and hdmi for games.

    imo both Bluray and HDDVD media is waaay to expensive and both have a poor movie selection.

    I'm holding out on buying any new HD format for awhile just because I own over 300 dvd's and have a really good Samsung up-conversion dvd player I bought last year. I'm just not ready to invest in a new format at this time and start a whole new collection of HD movies.

    You cant tell the difference between 720p & 18080p unless you have a tv bigger than 42"

    I was looking at these the other day in a store, and concidered running them through VGA.
    But I only watch a movie once and then I'm done with it, so it all seems like a waste atm.

    Wow, they sold 100 units. :P j/k

    Good job, Microsoft, on keeping up the good fight. Maybe they can sway some support their way on the HD-Dvd side with these sales.

    Ugh... I wish people would stop using Amazon as a benchmark of how well something is selling. It is not a good representation at all.

    Agreed. It was a similar situation with when ps3 clearance sale began.

    Don't mean jack unless you know what stock they had before.

    Likewise unless you know how many units amazon were selling, a 1000% increase could be 20 units.

    No lie, so what did they base this on (how many did they sell)?

    I have a hdtv and the high def stuff is great and all that, gaming in particular... but the other day I watched a regular DVD upscaled on 360 and it looked amazing. DVD aint going anywhere anytime soon and by the time it dies downloadable content will be the norm.
