More Free Blu-ray and HD DVD Movies!
Amazon.com is sweetening the pot for anyone who's been thinking about purchasing a high-def disc player. Unfortunately, it hasn't made the decision over which format to go with any easier. As we all know, Sony's Blu-ray format is locked in a knock-down drag- out war with Toshiba's competing HD DVD format, with every week that passes bringing news of one format gaining a lead on the other. In an attempt to win over converts, both camps have recently offered five free movies with the purchase of certain players.
Now, Amazon.com is throwing three more freebies on the pile. From now until September 23, the purchase of a 60GB PS3 gets you three free Blu-ray movies on top of the five Sony is already offering. Go with one of a few select Toshiba HD DVD players instead, and Amazon gifts you three HD DVD discs on top of the five you already get from Toshiba.
As one HD DVD fan exclaimed on a messageboard, it's almost as if they're paying you to buy one of these players. But, like we said, the gettin' is only good until September 23, so consult our guide to Blu-ray and HD DVD, then hurry and make up your mind!
