Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive Gets Price Cut

Microsoft today announced that it would be cutting the price of its HD DVD drive for the Xbox 360. With Blu-ray gaining momentum and leading the next-gen format war, the move is Microsoft’s push to get more people into HD DVD. Instead of $199, you’ll now only pay $179 and you get five free HD DVDs to boot. Better hurry though, ’cause this deal is only good from August 1st to September 30th.
