Microsoft cuts Xbox HD DVD price, adds 5-movie deal

updated 11:30 am EDT, Thu July 26, 2007

X360 HD DVD Price Cut

Microsoft today extended its efforts to push HD DVD by cutting the price on its Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on and including it in a new promo. The attachment drops $20 to $180 and now qualifies for an upcoming deal that will offer five free HD DVD movies from a hand-picked list of 15 titles, giving the same head-start on movie collecting that has previously been available only for Toshiba's dedicated HD DVD players. The combination of videos nearly equals the cost of the drive itself, Microsoft notes.

The price drop takes effect on August 1st, two weeks ahead of the release of 300 and the first full season of Heroes. Free movies will be available only between August 1st and September 30th and will require a mail-in rebate proving the purchase. Neither 300 nor Heroes are expected to be included in the list of free titles.
