$8 shipping isnt bad

Odds are you won't get a UPS, but that depends if the GS took the box too

Discovery's Ebay Store I believe


Check out the thread in the DVD forum. Has all the details. $29.99 shipped.

so when you purchase these used you do get a ups correct?


If you get a box, sure. I didn't when I bought mine six months ago.

BTW, if anyone is feeling generous and gets in on the rebate, I could really use Swordfish. ;)

Achievement and trophy hunters? GTFO.

That's totally YMMV...It depends on how many customers sold their player with the box w/upc intact.

Check out amazon marketplace. I did a quick search and I see new copies for 12-13 shipped. eBay may have some cheap copies also.

Normally when you watch dvd's on a regular TV you're watching them at 480i resolution (IIRC)...with a progressive scan player or your XBOX360 they upscale to 480p...Having a HD DVD player will upcovert DVD's up to 720p/1080i and if you have your XBOX360 contected via HDMI or VGA it upconverts to 1080p.


Just to clarify, the 360 will upconvert SD DVDs all the way up to 1080p without the HD DVD player if you have the latest update and are connected to your television via HDMI or VGA. There is simply no reason to purchase this drive if you just want an up converting DVD player.

Without being connected via either HDMI or VGA the best the 360 will do is 480p.

Ok, I think I stumbled upon a pretty good deal last night. Before that, Best Buy has many hd dvds on their website and a few instore for 14.99, so I picked up Fear and Loathing. Then I saw that they had the Matrix boxset for 44.99, and the only version they had on the shelf was the Ultimate Collection.

Now when I went to check out, the Ultimate Matrix boxset rang up at 89.99. I told the girl that it was on sale for 44.99, so she went to the aisle, came back and price adjusted it to 44.99. Good story, well, there's more.

Looking at the BB website this morning for other cheap hd dvds, I see that the Complete Matrix (3-disk) boxset is priced at 44.99 and backordered, while the Ultimate (5-disc) Matrix boxset is indeed priced at 89.99, just like it rang up yesterday.

So, in short, Ultimate Matrix boxset, 44.99, very much YMMV.

Toshiba and Microsoft
HD DVD Offer
Same offer, same expiration date, two different selections.
Can someone explain?

Edit: NEVERMIND! The 2nd offer does have a different expiration date!

The second one is from the UK.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

Picked up one at my GS for $44.99 (after Edge). I already have one (used GameRush credit I had built up about a year ago), but I figured I should have a backup in case mine craps out on me. Plus, I'll get the five free HD DVDs to boot.

Not if he used the Edge card, it would have to be used.

Please stop flooding this thread with your incessant begging. One per page is more than enough, let alone 2 in a row.

Thats what I was thinking, but he also said he would be getting five free movies and that won't happen with a used drive.
