Thank you, I just bought several Fox titles that I was holding out on because I thought they were overpriced.

Lots of Fox titles, which I have refused to buy (aside from X3, which I used a Wally World gift card for) until now. Titles I refused to budge on no matter how much I wanted them (like Kingdom Of Heaven) are now $19.99. Some good Sony catalog stuff is only 14.99.

If this thread needs moved, please do so, just figured I'd give everybody a heads up.

Wow there are now 12 blu ray titles in top 100 and 54 in top 1000, with HD DVD having a month with no releases, this sale is going to kill that ratio of sales between the two

It was 'HDDISC10' but you had to have made your first qualifying purchase using the code by December 31, 2006.

Yes it looks very lopsided on both www.thedvdwars.com and www.hdgamedb.com right now in favour of Blu-ray.

54 titles in the top 1,000 and 12 in the top 100 is pretty impressive.
See Fox, we'll buy your titles when they're priced right.

I have ordered 5 so far today, may pick up another few tonight.

Hmmm, wish it was all BDs. As is, perhaps Black Hawk Down and X3.

Nice to see. Hopefully a sign of things to come. Some Fox titles I'd like to have, but I still wouldn't pay $20 for them. And the Sony titles I can pretty well be assured that all-around superior Special Editions will come to BD. Surely there will be a Knight's Tale Special Edition, and maybe a Resident Evil Collection at some point.

Been waiting on that supposed DC of FF. And with the sequel almost here it should materialize in the near future. And might as well wait for a box set of X-Men.

Guess I'll stick with the cheapies on my shelf for now since I don't even have a player yet. As it is, one of those (T2) will undoubtedly be upgraded in the future.

These titles moving out at reduced prices will send a positive message to the studios though.

That's odd because $20 is SD DVD prices, unless you're looking for fullscreen versions of B movies.

As for Sony, the $14.99 for The Fifth Element is a steal as word on AVS and other places is that Sony will be offering a swap in the next month or two when the BD50 cleaned up version of The Fifth Element comes out.
