With all the recent announcements concerning diminishing support for the HD-DVD format, it’s understandable that some retailers might be anxious to lighten their inventory of HD-DVD movies. How does 50% off sound?
That’s right. Amazon.com appears to be desperate to get rid of a large selection of HD-DVD titles, including some of the movies that helped give the format its biggest boost, such as Transformers, King Kong and Mission Impossible 3.
No sign yet that the sale is happening on Amazon’s Canadian site, but since the U.S. site will ship DVDs to Canada and the loonie is still flirting with parity, it may make sense to pick these up, while you still can, even if it means risking the duty that may be levied.
Sorry Blu-ray viewers, your movies are still going for
their regular more-than-fire-sale prices. So much for "to the victors go the spoils of war"…
Update: Maybe Amazon knows something the rest of us don’t. New rumours are swirling that Toshiba is about to drop their development of the HD-DVD format completely.
