Toshiba in partnership with Amazon.com is running a promo on one of it’s HD DVD players. If you lived in the US you could pick one up for the rock bottom price of $238.
Amazon.com has added its own discount to the mix, offering the player at the bottom-line price of $238. As a result, the player jumped to the top of Amazon’s best-selling DVD players list over the weekend, where it still remains today,
At prices like that the PS3 looks increasingly less appealing as a HD movie player, which unfortunately has been one of it’s biggest draw cards in the recent past.
On the bright side though, if Toshiba can now manufacture these players that cheaply we should expect a large price drop in the PS3 in the near future.
