Default Toshiba releasing $100 hd dvd player in time for the holidays??

My son and I stopped in CC after watching Transformers at the imax Saturday. There is a supervisor I like to talk to there. He is very informative and is very professional and well mannered(the only employee like this in the whole store I suspect). Anyway...he told me that he just got news from ''his corporate guy'' that they were going to be recieving a hd dvd player, before the holidays, PRICED FOR $100!! Could this be the Venture player that has perhaps changed its original price?? Is this price part of Black Friday?? He could not tell me these questions but he promised he would let me know when he gets all the details. Has anyone heard anything pertaining to this?? I hope it turns out to be true. This would be a great way to get more players into consumers hands and take advantage of the holiday shopping season.

uh yah. SAME HERE! Hell I'd buy one for the bedroom, as a secondary player! What would possibly stop someone from buying one if it costs the same as an upconvert???

Well if it's a black friday thing then it won't really make an impact but if it turns out to be true and is a regular store item available through the holidays it is huge.

Are you trying to compete with the Warner thread or is this for real?

This has to be a Black Friday special. All the news I've read on the Venturer put it around $200 msrp which probably means somewhere between $150-$200 in the stores.

If I had to guess... which I will.. I bet this will be a Toshiba HDA2 for $99 on Black Friday to get people in the store early. Even though I've said I won't buy another Toshiba player that price is tempting to say the least.

I don't think toshiba sells even a s dvd player for $100. I don't believe this rumour .
If they actually did it and i was a stockholder in toshiba i'd be very afraid.

I have better things to do with my time and I am secure in my self esteem not to start some BS thread like the Warner thread bs story. I posted this because my cc friend told me this and I posted it here to see if anybody heard anything,savvy? I am starting to think it may be a Black Friday kind of thing. When I see him again I will push for more info he may have heard.
