HD DVD Player and 3 HD DVDs for $99?
In response to the threat of Blu-ray selling so well here in the States, Toshiba has announced that it will be offering a promotional sale at the Home Media Expo’s EMA show where the company will offer its HD A2 HD DVD player and three HD DVD movies for a cool $99.
Sounds pretty good, right? Don’t get ahead of yourself. In order to get into the show, you will need to dish out between $100 and $500 and the deal is only for attendees – no one else.
In response to an endless supply of questions, Toshiba released the following statement: “The $99 player is an accommodation price only for attendees of the Home Media Expo’s EMA trade show this week and is being offered by the HD DVD Promotional Group. It is not in any way connected with a broader consumer offer from Toshiba.”
Oh well. Looks like you’ll have to wait another year for those kind of prices.
