    Xbox 360 HD DVD Player Moves to $179, Adds Five Free HD DVDs

    Microsoft have announced they’re going to drop the price of the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player from $199 to $179 starting August 1st and will add five free HD DVD movies for anyone purchasing an Xbox 360 HD DVD Player between August 1st and September 30th.
