Default Will Warmart keep selling A2 at $98

What happens after today, when Walmart and Toshiba see's the posabilty of selling a million units befor Xmass. Will they keep selling the units for $98.00, and will other like BB, CC and Amazon do the same if so how much will they sell and what will happen to Blu and what will Warner do? They have found the magic number will they keep going?

I think they will sell the A2s til they run out as it is a past generation...then they will put there A3s on sale for 170 starting after thanksgiving..then keep it at that price til they sell out...
Then lower the 1080p players..so HD-A30 will be 200.00 and 300.00 for the HD-A35..
and keep the HDDVD market at 1080p...never releasing another 1080i HDDVD player.

Yeah, I agree. The price of the A2 is now 99 to 129 max.

Some Bluboiz bought these things hoping to resell at 199.

Lost!

i am not convinced the price of the higher end players will drop so much. I think they have a decent change of competing against equivalently featured bluray players at the higher end.

Agreed. The only way I would pay more than $99-129 is if they allowed you to pickup at least two free movies (not mail in) at the store in the $150-170 range.

They will for highly-competitive shopping days and to build foot-traffice on certain days.

Loss-leaders don't make them a lot of money; its the traffic and people buying other things when they are there that do.

A perpetual HD-A2 sale is impossible too since supplies are gone.

To answer your question, in most stores, 20 minutes. Supplies are gone now.
