In some fairly predictable news, it is just emerging from various retail sources that the price of Microsoft's HD-DVD add-on is highly likely to cost less than £130. Which is quite the bargain, for any gamers who are also movie buffs out there and who aren't (like Sony) willing to take the Blu-Ray plunge just yet.
Retailers have been informed that the cost of the Xbox 360 plus the cost of the HD-DVD add-on (pictured, right) will be less than the cost of Sony's PS3, according to reports.
SPOnG will be speaking to Microsoft reps to find out when they plan to make an official announcement on the cost of this must-have add-on. In the meantime, we'll all just have to keep 'making do' with those old-fashioned, almost 'quaint' DVD movies.
