Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

If any of you poor souls bought a HD-DVD player, Sony will let you trade it in for a discount on one of their Blu-ray players, offer only applies to Switzerland.

Engadget (English description)

Sony offer (French)

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

Do you have an actual HD-DVD player? What do you mean by "HD ready" player?

Edit - (Also this thread is over a year old, why did you reply to it? I'm sure it's no longer valid, as the link to Sony no longer works.)

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

Just so you know, I don't think an "HD ready" player is the same thing as an HD-DVD player.

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

An article more than a year ago:

Quote:
Sony's Blu-Ray has finally won the battle of the high-definition DVD formats with Toshiba announcing it is to axe its rival HD DVD technology.
The final blow to HD DVD came last week when US retail giant Wal-Mart announced it would only stock Sony's Blu-Ray format.
Toshiba's president and chief executive, Atsutoshi Nishida, said today that after a thorough review of its strategy, the company had decided a swift end to the format war would help the HD market.
"We carefully assessed the long-term impact of continuing the so-called 'next-generation format war' and concluded that a swift decision will best help the market develop," he said.
Print out that article and ask that lying git of a salesperson why they misrepresented to you about Blu Ray disks being able to be played on your HD DVD player ( with prices dropping since losing the war ) and still stocking such players.

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

According to the Ebay/Saw thread, the model number she provided is NOT an HD-DVD player, just a DVD recorder. So who knows?

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

Even then, it cannot play a Blu Ray disc. The misrepresentation still stands.

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

Maybe some marketing droid labeled it HD because of the video interface instead of the drive's capability to read HD-DVD disks? Anyway, have fun with your high definition horror movies.

Re: Trade in your HD DVD for Blu-ray

Discovered I still have in my possession a leftover from life in the US, an HD-DVD player (Toshiba HD-A2). Anyone interested, for free?

I probably have a number of films still available but would need to do some searching
