K-Mart stores have discounted Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 HD DVD Player to $5.00 as the retailer moves remaining units of the defunct high-definition peripheral.
Damn that's a good deal even for just upscaling your DVD's. Wonder if it'll be easy to find though.
For $5 it's worth it, just to say, "I bought the OTHER format" twenty years from now. Just like betamax owners. Its an exclusive club - who doesn't want to be a part of a counter-culture????
S.O.B., I just went there after reading this article, and they dont have it :(
it's hilarious people disagree with you..
for anyone that bought that thing at full price. Ouch.
it would be funny if everyone suddenly bought one, and Bam! hddvd is back in the race!
a $5.00 for it. i will buy it...wait i have a ps3. what should i do......(thinking) never mind i can use it like that
I already own one, but for that price I'll buy two more for backups. in case the one I have breaks.
For my 360
That's the dumbest thing I've heard this year so far.
Xbox 360 is about to be 3 years old, so my warranty is about to run out. I wish Xbox 360 was 5 dollars so I could also have a back up in case it breaks when the warranty ends. After all any rational consumer would want that after knowing they have defective hardware. But hey, I guess Xbox fanboys hate to be reminded they chose the wrong console so they have to call everyone else dumb. Thank goodness I have both.
It will probably be sold out
Even at $5 I still wont buy one lol
you can get your hands on some cool HDDVD that are dirt cheap and watch them. You would spend very little and have a good little collection of HD movies
Even if you don't use it as an HDDVD drive, a $5 external DVD Drive is pretty cheap. Wouldn't be a bad deal if you owned, say, a macbook air... although I'm not sure if the air would recognize the hd-dvd drive.. prolly not. Oh well, sounded like a good idea in my head.
Now that's a fire sale! I think it's time to finally pick one up.
Now thats a deal.
man...i wish i can buy one of those...
and i don't even own a 360. (Might in the future)
Pick one up as paperweight?
Using patched toshiba driver and using latest power dvd software. Ripping the discs takes forever but they make great HD divx files at around 5-6gb ea.
Xbox 360 FTW!!!!
I still don't want it!!! ;-D @-Maverick- ;) Does 'Xbox 360 FTW' Mean Xbox 360 For The Winter??? i.e as a HEATER!!! ;-D
Bubbles bro, that was funny.
lmao Ken. that was hilarious.
Bubbles for everyone;)
I don't know why...but I want one.
Cause you'll be seeing similar for the 360 console by 2010
bubble for you
And that's exactly when I will make the jump!
haha when I read the headline on the front page I thought that is what it said...that the 360 itself was discounted to $5...
I thought they finally got rid of all those crappy hd dvd players a long time ago. I guess not. $5! Jesus why dont they just put a sign on them saying free? Hd dvd players are not even worth $5. Neither is a 360. They all suck balls.
not bad for a upscaling DVD player AHHAHAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHAHA
thats crzy lol they can never sell hd-dvd it was a hopeless cause they should just use the remaining as door stoppers lol
Another proud moment for the 360 i see
Hd dvd for $5 bucks, lets roll to Kmart.
they would have to give me 5.00 for that POS,so last gen.B L U R A Y 4 L I F E.
360 is $15.00,HURRY there almost out!!!!PLAY B3YOND waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaay B3YOND!
My underwear cost more than that.
HD DVD is such a flop.
its more than a flop. its been DISCONTINUED. Or haven't you gotten that memo?
still not buying it.
that's why. I'm keeping mine, though Fear and Loathing and The Big Lebowski look AWESOME on the HD-DVD. F!ck blu-ray and f!ck the 360 haters, go get some pu$$y you pathetic f!cking losers.
You're in the right zone!
Most kids in here can't get their d!ck wet, unless of course they spit on it themselves.
LMAO 5 bucks, that's exactly how much it's worth
I am NO WHERE NEAR a Kmart and I would pick one up for 5$ in a heartbeat. CURSE MY KMART LESS NESS.
"$5 for an upconverting, 360-compatible DVD player. Includes DVD remote. Also plays something called HD-DVDs." I got one for next-to-nothing, and use it primarily for upconversion, though I've found a few HD-DVDs on the cheap.
$5?? Thats just sad.
It's not too bad; it up scales DVDs, cheap HD DVDs and if that idea doesn't work...use it as a coaster...or as a door stop. So it's not that bad of a deal...especially since K-mart doesn't know what a "profit" is :P
lmfao.. I like the door stop idea XD
Damn. It's worth buying now. Probably be worth something down the road
Sweet...that saves xbox owners to spend $160 on an HDD and another $100 on wireless...don't forget about batteries/charger for those controllers either....why do people buy the gimpbox180 again? Goulet
If it were 99 cents.
wow 5 bucks, thats £2.50 in europe, talk about cheapness for a hd dvd .....just get a BLUE RAY player, i mean come on y be so iggnorant !! PS3 !! >ANY ONE LOOKING FOR A BLUE RAY< -_-
5 bucks! Thats too much for something that practicaly has no use. But i would buy one, just to own it. LOL
Remember these work on a PC as well. It's a pretty cheap way to get some HD-DVDs and convert them to Blu-Ray or save on a hard drive for play on a media network. Just because the format is dead doesn't mean this can't have a practical use -- the movies are still in HD and are dirt cheap.
Its not even worth the hassle of upscaling dvds.. LOL to the people who paid full price.. Too funny.
$5.00 thats cheaper than a pack of cigarettes in most states..... Hell you cannot buy a Value Meal for $5.00 anymore... Sh*t thats a gallon of gas in CA Hell a PS3 game rented form blockbuster cost more..$8.90 incl tax.... Damn that's cheaper than the movies.... Dude that amounts to one pack of juicy fruit, a .5liter coke and a small BIC lighter... Hey that may be a pretty good deal....
if they had just charged that in the first place, the war would've been over long ago:)
finski's don't grow on trees
Not true, it's $50, not $5. It's simple emough for the author to have checked KMart's website. http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/...
player with 7 movies on ebay for $42
It's still $5 too much
5$ ? Way too expensive!
