Who wins in the high def format battle? You do!

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the high definition market to se how the format war between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray will pan out, you may have noticed one thing. Prices for both formats have come down dramatically in a very short period of time. While you still had to $700 for a DVD player one year after the format’s inception back in 1998, today you can purchase HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players at a bargain by comparison.

To underscore the point even more, the HD-DVD Promotions Group has just announced a $100 rebate on the Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD player. For an entire month running from May 20, people buying a HD-A2 HD-DVD player at most retail stores will received an instant $100 in-store credit, driving the price of this player down to $299. Considering that this HD-DVD player also serves as one of the best standard DVD players in the market with its remarkable upscaling capabilities, I am sure this is a very tempting proposition for many people who had been holding out.
