Default Why did they have to take Kong?

oh why, why did they stop the promotional deal with the 360 add on, i highly anticipated the re-stock only to find that no, no free kong HD DVD for you to test your new equipment with, go and spend even more money on a HD DVD, asides from king kong being a great film they shouldnt have removed it i would easily have preferred kong instead of the media remote bundled of which i already have, in the words of the mighty napolean GOSH!

But if you're buying the HD DVD add-on, surely you were going to buy some disks anyway!

The media remote came bundled with it before as well (in addition to "King Kong").

Default i still miss it

well i was counting on watching the lovely kong and then buying some more discs after i got my new shiny paycheck, just a little bit of time but it just annoyed me that they took away a prefectly good test disc, because of a promotional offer it would have been nice to have a disc bundled to start of a collection, considering i also brought a media remote before this product was heard of, was annoying as i spent more money on something i could have got for free later in life, but oh well, its good for the people who dont already have one

I have yet to watch my copy of King Kong. You can find it on ebay real cheap too. On the other hand, I use my universal remote all the time.

well Kong looks to be an epic HD title, but i really want to try and grab somthing that screams HD and makes your draw drop at the picture quality, any reccomendations? mission impossible 3 looks fantastic but in some scenes seemed grained i dont know if im too critical but any suggestions to a good looking HD DVD would be great

That's odd. This week's circular from Circuit City shows the add-on plus King Kong.

Rodz,
A really great movie that showcases the HD drive is Grand Prix. It's about 40 years old, but I was floored when I watched it the other night. GORGEOUS!!!!

Batman Begins is also the bee's knees.
