@nunayobiznus I actually do think that is a large portion of it.
The HD-DVD/Blu-ray war just got a bit more interesting over the Amazon way.
Right now, if you buy a Toshiba HD-A2, HD-A20 (pictured to the left), or an HD-XA2, not only do you get the free five mail-away movies they’ve been offering (which the choices are fairly lackluster, I will admit), Amazon will give you three movies instantly for free, and their selection is pretty nice.
But, where is the format war in all this you ask?
Oh no, this doesn’t make this decision any harder at all!
The free instant movies last until September 23rd, the mail-aways are good until October 31st.
