Default The HD DVD disk clearance thread!

If anyone has any links to online stores or know of stores like Best Buy etc. that have some big HD DVD movie sales, tell us here on this thread! I would like to build my collection so I can use them for years to come. Sure many more HD DVD owners have the same idea.

I'm thinking ebay is our best chance. People rushing to get rid of them.

Retailers will probably keep them at 20$-30$ waiting for their shelves to clear.

But their have been a few websites offering 10-15$ on HDDVDs BEFORE this recent Toshiba dropping news.

If I can get HD-DVDs for $5 each, I am so tripling my collection.

I'll probably be putting up my player and movies in the for sale section sometime tonight. Figure 11 bucks per title and 50 for the player. Package deal though, I'm not hassling with splitting them all up.

I'm more interested in players to keep my current HD DVDs playing for a long time. I want an A35 for $150... wonder if I'll be able to get it.

Even though Im blu I never quite understood why people are selling all their HDDVD's. Do you guys just want your shelf to look neat or something?
If it were me I would buy a Blu Ray player, and once prices get low replace it with a high end dual format player. Then stick the BD player on another TV in the house.

I'm currently using the 360 AO, but I'd definitely pick up an A35 once it dips to that price point. Is it too naive to hold out for an A45?

I don't get that mentality either. I could probably eBay my entire collection (75% of which are still factory sealed!) for $10 each. (not too bad considering I estimate I spent an average of $15 on each movie, boxsets notwithstanding, due to BOGOs/3FOR2/50% sales + Amazon 10% discount + free shipping/no tax), but why the heck would I want to do that? So that I can now re-buy the BD versions (if even available) for about $20 each (I no longer have the 10% discount and if things are complete Blu, I don't see a lot of BOGOs happening anymore)? THAT doesn't make any financial sense (not that most regular people would consider buying hundreds of movies a good financial investment in the first place).

Anyway, despite the recent events, I am still hoping to expand on my HD DVD collection, unlike some other fair-weather HD DVD supporters. I hope these pre-ordered HD DVDs don't get canceled:

American Gangster*
Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, The*
Bee Movie
Beowulf
Brave One, The*
Fletch
In The Valley Of Elah
Invasion, The*
Michael Clayton
No Reservations
Things We Lost in the Fire
Justice League: The New Frontier
Kite Runner, The
Appleseed Ex Machina
August Rush
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
Twister

* I think these are already pressed so they probably won't be canceled

I also want these announced titles that aren't up for pre-order yet (that fact alone makes it more at risk of being canned):

Patriot Games
Sum of All Fears
Clear and Present Danger
Hunt For Read October, The
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
I Am Legend
Charlie Wilson's War

And these movies I expect to hit home before June, but haven't yet been announced (hopefully they will be):

Atonement
There Will Be Blood
Cloverfield

That being said, I still hold on to whatever hope is left for a major surprise announcement/comeback from the HD DVD Promo Group. But with the recent headlines, I am prepared to go down with the ship. I absolutely refuse any life jackets. With any luck, I'll have a collection of at least 300 or so HD DVDs.
