No more Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on players!

360hddvdJust a few days after announcing they’d continue to support the HD DVD player add-on for the Xbox 360 during the wake of the HD DVD format’s death, Microsoft announced they will no longer manufacture new HD DVD add-on players for the Xbox 360.

The primary reason for ceasing manufacturing is, of course, in response to decisions by Toshiba, Hollywood studios and retailers to withdraw their support for HD DVD. Microsoft will continue to support standard product and warrant support for all current HD DVD add-on players in the market, but that’s it folks, no more will be manufactured.

If you’re in the market for picking up the HD DVD add-on player for nostalgia purposes, it’s expected that the price will drop to $50 next week. Cheap works for me!
