For the price of a large pizza delivered to my door.

I use the Xbox 360 HDDVD player to play DVDs, so I won't have to take my game out when watching movies. $19.99 well worth it. If you plug it into your computer you can burn a movie/cd/dvd with one drive, and watch a dvd/HDDVD with your HDDVD player. Transformers on HDDVD is nice watching it over and over again. Good luck finding one Firestorm.

That is nuts! If I go to Walmart any time soon I'm definitely going to check for this. Thanks for the heads up!

well, dead format or not, the 360 remote control alone retails for $25-30.

the bonus KK movie and add-on player would be like icing on the cake :D

most WM should be all cleared out of these players by now. YMMV

Hmm, I'll take a look later. Are their any deals on HD DVD's at Wal-Mart right now (hell, anywhere)?

spking of HD-DVDs, did WM actually put them on clearance... ? after that initial (crappy) sale of HD movies (e.g. Pan's Labyrinth and other titles for $7, Troy DC for $15), the next time i went back the shelves were empty. was told they sent them all back to MFR :cry:

Nothing at Kanata Centrum. In fact, the cheapest HD DVD I saw was $19.99, some others still being full price at $33, $35, etc..

Rogers has them at 9.99, and it might be YMMV (not sure), but mine also applied the BOGO to the HDDVDS.

Only one location in Winnipeg has any (McPhillips), and they're still at $200. :( Would printing out that receipt and taking it to BB/FF work, despite the different provinces?

On a side note, will these HD DVD drives read games? My current 360 drive is acting pissy these days.

BLAST.

It's all Roman's fault. I put in GTA IV, and got his clingy ass phoning me to grab a bite to eat since his fat ass can't pay for that shit. Then the dirty disc read error pops up, and I am like what the Fuck?

I've been contemplating either exchanging it or goozexing it and buying a new copy. I don't know if it's my xbox or the disk but I am starting to think it's the disk. The disk is flawless though.

Did they scan it? It should be nationwide. You can try the receipt, but most Future Shop and Best Buys are sold out.

i just cleared out another rogers video, i got:

I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry
The Bourne Identity
Blades of Glory
Oceans 13

Choose Wal-Mart for your player, and Rogers Video for all your HD-DVD needs! Woot!

I tried to get Futureshop to PM the drive yesterday but they wouldn't because they couldn't find a walmart that had stock and that could verify the price...
Goozex is great! Try it now: Posted Image

Saved me a trip... I saw at least one at Capilano, and was wondering if it was kicking around still. Picked up 10 HD DVDs for $5 each from Rogers, now I actually want to find the player!:lol:

No, I had just called. I think I might try that tomorrow, though... I actually really want one of these.

I'm finally gonna have time to go out tomorrow. I might call around. Ugh, stupid Vancouver not allowing a Wal-Mart in the city. I have to go out pretty far. I hear both Lougheed and New West are sold out so it's probably gonna be Capilano or Guildford...

If you're willing to pay the extra $10 I think my Walmart might have one still.
