360 HD DVD add-on now $50

Written by David Stellmack

Price driven to an all new low


It seems that just when we thought that it would be hard for the price of the Xbox 360 add-on HD DVD drive to go much lower, Best Buy is now blowing out the HD DVD add-on drive for an incredible US$49.99. No, this isn’t a mis-print, and quantities are limited.

In view of the departure of Toshiba (the maker of the HD DVD drive in the Xbox 360 add-on drive) from the HD DVD business, the purchase of one of these Xbox 360 add-on drives has a limited life span, at best. With very few new titles expected to make their way to HD DVD before the summer, it will take a very unique consumer who would want to take a chance on the HD DVD add-on drive.

Purchasers of the HD DVD add-on drive are still able to take advantage of the five free HD DVD movie offer that has been running for the past couple of months. So, for $49.99 and five free movies, and lots of HD DVD movies being clearanced out at very good prices, the immediate use of the drive perhaps makes a bit more logical sense short-term, but, of course, with Blu-ray being the HD standard going forward, long-term use of the drive is questionable beyond playing HD DVD movies that one has already acquired.

Pick up the HD DVD drive add-on for the Xbox 360 here.
