Budget HD-DVD Player to Include Seven Free HD-DVDs

Blu-ray is an extremely popular HD media format at the moment, mainly because 2.5 million out of the 3 million Blu-ray players out there are PS3s. In an attempt to follow this success streak, the HD-DVD promoters are trying to promote their format by making sure everyone has more than enough HD-DVD movies to go around. When a customer buys a Venturer SHD7001, they get seven free HD-DVD movies. These disks come as a voucher for seven disks, which is redeemable at any store that sells HD-DVDs. This sales event is confirmed in the United Kingdom, and it is very likely that it will soon spread around the world. At the moment, the Venturer HD-DVD player promises to cost under £200, and should become available exclusively through QVC on December 29th.

They are a cheap brand that makes decent stuff. Radios, clocks, cd players, etc...but they arent known for top notch quality. They are the cheap mans electronics and get the job done. However, 200 pounds (sorry cant do the pound symbol) is a little steep. Considering thats $400 USD here. Now, if they roll out at like 100 to 125 bucks, then they might be worth getting.

This has been in the U.S. for sub $200. Usually they will price everything about the same numbers wise in Europe and the U.S. Heck look at the prices that were there at the start of the PS3's lifespan. $599 and 599 Euros

Edit: also you all have to remember that this is the STARTING PRICE for an HD DVD player. Thats a great starting price point for when a peculiar brand releases their first product. So just imagine how the prices will be dropping on this soon.

7 HD DVDs times $30 dollars = $210 + $20 for tax. $230 worth of movies for a $200 player. Even if the thing does break down, it's still a helluva deal.
