Toshiba HD-DVD offer

Toshiba will soon offer three free discs with every purchase of an HD-DVD player, writes High-Def Digest. Starting November 1st and ending February 28th, customers will receive a mail-in order form that will let them choose one disc apiece from three different studios (Warner, Paramount and Universal). Notable titles to choose from include "Apollo 13," "Blazing Saddles," and "U2: Rattle and Hum." Click through to see the complete list. The move would seem to be an escalation in the HD media wars, following Sony's decision to bundle the Blu-ray "Talladega Nights" with the first 500,000 Playstation 3s. Toshiba is demonstrably winning the conflict though, since Home Media Retailing has reported that HD-DVD discs are outselling Blu-ray discs three to one.

Apollo 13
The Chronicles of Riddick
The Rundown

Blazing Saddles
The Dukes of Hazzard
The Perfect Storm

Four Brothers
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
U2: Rattle and Hum
We Were Soldiers
