Here is the link for A3

http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3304910&CatId=2356

$180 now and you have to select a $46 service plan. What a rip-off especially since they won’t be around long enough to honor it.

Same deal at Tiger.

I am waiting for the prices to come down or at least include shipping.

Wait a month or so and they will be 99.00 like the A3 was before Black Friday, people are thinking twice about these now that Bluray has the clear advantage.:iagree:

EDIT Nevermind. Still makes me wary due to the fact that they are going out of business though.

I just read somewhere that CompUSA.com is now owned by the same company that owns TigerDirect, so If that’s true I wouldn’t worry about that.

Is it ? :confused:

How many titles are available on HD-DVD right now ? hundreds ? I don’t think HD-DVD is gonna die soon

Should be some great sales this next year.

Sony bought MGM/UA to keep them Blu-Ray exclusive (at a cost of 4.5 billion I might add). Hence the reason why I have said that even though Blu-Ray seems to be winning over HD-DVD, they are still the ultimate loser given the amount of money that is being invested into the technology and how precious little is coming back in. Either way though I am going OT here so if you would like to discuss it further we have a couple of threads going about this sort of thing in the high def forums.

Exactly what I was gonna say!

[/quote]I guess 4.5billion is just a path to get the 20billion high definition market in the upcoming years. Pure business.

If Sony wins, I don’t look for a lot of Blu-Ray bargains.
