UK not getting HD DVD player price cut (yet)
Yesterday, Microsoft announced an Xbox 360 HD DVD player price drop and the inclusion of five free HD DVDs, but also coyly mentioned such offer was only available in the US. And IGN decided to press Microsoft on the issue to see whether or not a price cut would make its way overseas and received a standard marketing response that goes something like ... "we currently have no announcements to make at this stage regarding a price cut of the Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive for the UK". So, there you have it no HD DVD player price cut for anyone else for the foreseeable future. Or maybe such an announcement will be coming during that special UK event. Hmm, maybe.
