Venturer to Release Budget HD DVD Player for the Holidays

Discount manufacturer Venturer Electronics today announced that it would release its first HD DVD player in time for this year's holiday shopping season.

The Canadian-based company, which is known for value-priced electronics, hasn't yet revealed a list price for the new disc player, but it's expected to be among the lowest priced of all entry-level HD DVD players yet to hit the market.

With Toshiba's HD-A2 retailing at under $250, and the Xbox 360 Add-on at under $179, it's a good bet that the Venturer player might break below the $150 mark.

But i think you are jumping the gun saying its gonna be 150 or lower in the title since no price range has been confirmed it could be 10 or 10000 dollars for all we know.

edit: yeah i understood the logic behind it but for title purposes it would be good to add the "possible" or "rumor" prefixes to the title

i was just quote the title of the original post that i got it from. but they are known for cheap electronics.

Honestly seems to me like Sony's blu ray empire is sinking pretty damn fast. I don't see them doing anything about it either.

junk563763d ago

i'll bet anybody a million bucks even if they make it like 200 bucks nobody is going to buy it.

....i cant see millions of people flocking to walmart and buying a no name hd dvd player. heck i wouldnt do that for a dvd player OR a bluray player.

who the hell is venturer nways

BloodySinner3763d ago

I rather use that money to buy more games.

BLaZiN PRopHeT3763d ago

from what i heard they are they company that makes cheap dvd players for walmart and those stores.

As for that if the hd dvd player works, and is cheap then people will buy it.

Optimus Prime3763d ago

that is what i have been hearing as well. these cheap HDDVD players are for walmart and other stores like that. If this player is in walmart, guaranteed it will sell tons. the majority of people shopping at walmart could care less really about the brandname, as long as the price is low. but i could be wrong

I guess you don't know the Wal-Mart shopper then.
They want cheap products that perform similar to higher priced name brand products.

You can find this brand in any Canadian Wal-Mart.
In US Wal-Marts, it's called Durabrand.

You can find them in Targets under the name TruTech.

Different names...same product.

A crappy player from a crappy company for a dead format, HD-DVD.

LOL!

It won't be long until Toshiba and Microsoft are paying people to buy players for the dead HD-DVD format.

stonedog3763d ago (Edited 3763d ago )

"we sell for less" has been their motto; that is why they have been so succesful. While no price is confirmed yet the fact is that the company is known for affordable electronics. I know that Wally mart is not selling HD DVD machines this x-mas but their competitors may be. The reason for mass DVD adoption was that you could buy one for $60 and eventually $29.Clearly this is potentially huge. Lets see Blu rays counter to this. HD is far form dead and this could be its death knell.

leon763763d ago

WOW!! this new is so exciting like the one: "Radiolex to release a new MC tape player"

BIadestarX3763d ago

You would be amazed how many people go to wallmart and buy no-name brands of TVs, DVD player, etc.... just because the price difference and because it simple does the job. Cheap HD DVD player it's simply good news for the HD DVD camp.

etownone3763d ago

how can anyone disagree with you??

are sony fans so blind or just in denial. Its the #1 reason Walmart is the #1 store in America, cause Americas will always be cheap and flock to good cheap prices.

Its the reason the expensive Ps3 is getting their azzes handed to them buy the much cheaper Wii

Daewoodrow3763d ago

they're disagreeing with him because the prospect of Bluray not winning terrifies them. Bluray is the PS3's single greatest strength, as well as its greatest weakness.

leon763763d ago

To Daewoodrow: Blu-Ray IS Winning!!!!

WilliamRLBaker3763d ago (Edited 3763d ago )

TO LEON
He never said blu ray wasn't he said cows like you *sonyfanboys* are terrified of a cheapo hd dvd player that works on the eve of the fact that both camps are equal in studio support now, Blu ray is winning but that doesn't mean it all ways will hd dvd is still in this game and is making a big counter strike with a cheap hd dvd player that works, if it does work, and exclusive studio support.

blu ray can still lose.

"MUUMUUMUUMUUMUUMUUMUUMU UMUUMUUMUMUMUUMUMUMUMMUMUMUMUM M UMUUUUMUMMUUU"
And l'm the cow fanboy???
Edit:
"*thumbs up* good job man you can make a good comeback there, I bet your one of those people in real life that when they get made fun of all they can do is say the same thing back, Probly pull the i know you are but what i am defense dontcha?" - your bet's wrong...lost all your money...
I didn't use blablabla language, you did remember: MUUMUUMUUMUUMUUMUUMUU
So you're a lemming or a sheep mééééé ;méééém 3;ééééé ;???? sure i'm not a cow!!!

You used the whole BLAH BLAH Blah defense because you cannot come up with any thing to prove me wrong, HD DVD is selling, Blu ray is out selling, HD DVD camp is finally pulling cut throat tactics like blu ray has been doing from the start, and unlike the blu ray camp hd dvd is agreesively working to make its player cheaper, If blu ray keeps messing around regardless of the ps3 hd dvd will start selling more and more and then this war wont be so blu ray one sided any more.

Specially this christmas because the consumer wants an cheap but effective product they dont want expensive, which is what blu ray is even now.

P.S: and yes your the cow...Now before you reply and prove your own inexperience, surf the net some more, find out that at a few sites including gamespot, Sonyfanboys are know by the term Cow they are called this because they get milked by sony every generation.

P.P.S: xbots are known as lemmings, and nintendo boys are known as sheep.
