Default Will HD-DVD players get to $50 in 2008?

If they do I might just get one because I know movie prices will drop dramatically.

I predict that at some point, we will see a sale price on the A3 at $79.99.

I think they will push HD-DVD players HARD towards the next quarter (March)...they will probably make a new offer for free HD-DVD movies via the rebate...maybe more than 5 and a better selection of movies from Paramount and Dreamworks and Uni themselves. Maybe Amazon.com will run another promo with a player purchase...

Like lets say you get the two free in box...then Amazon.com gives you three free...then 10 via rebate...That would be an awesome deal that would sell tons of movies.

Ah...but Im a dreamer.

Seriously: Are people in the US that poor?

I paid 200$ for my Microsoft/Toshiba HD-DVD add-on player and 800$ for my PS3 60GB PAL. I would be absolutely happy if I could get a 120$ HD-DVD player. No need to drop them in price even more.

No... but not everyone is willing to drop any amount of money on something they see has little value to them (whether it be Red or Blu).

Obviously Toshiba and retailers feel they need to drop the prices to move the product. It's not that different than Sony dropping the PS3 from $599 to $399 (or $299 if this happens to come true today).

The problem with Toshiba is that now the prices are so low that they look like a firesale... esp with no new hardware announced to replace these models. Doesn't help that WalMart and CC have listed them as clearance either.
