Default What is the sweet spot price?

I was looking at DVD player prices and what do you think is the sweet spot price for HD DVD to replace DVD player sales?

It looks like $99 is the typical price for a quality upscaling DVD player. Does the HD DVD player have to meet that price or do you think it can come in at $129 or so because it is HD.

I actually think that even $150 would do it. Think about it this way.. a lot of people are still willing to buy upconvert DVD players at the $99 price. If they're willing to do that, I think $150 for a even better technology would be one where a lot of jp6 comes into play.

i think $150 or $199 are sweet spot prices. or course the cheaper option is always better, but i don't think they will dip that low for a while (unless it's a 360 add-on). $199 is an awesome price for a standalone like the one VE had on sale last week.
