Microsoft offering free HD-DVDs

With every purchase of an Xbox 360 HD-DVD player you can now get not one, not two, not even three or four, but a staggering five free HD-DVDs.

From the 1st of October right up to the 31st of January next year anyone who purchases the HD-DVD player for their Xbox 360 will be able to choose 5 of 13 film titles from studios including Warner Brothers, Universal, Dreamworks and Paramount. To claim your movies you need to send in a form along with the barcode of the HD-DVD player and Microsoft should have your selections with you within 28 working days. For more information you can hit the Microsoft promotion page.

In a nutshell that means you’d better damned well hurry if you want to get that special someone an HD-DVD player for Christmas.. *hint *hint*. 5 HD-DVDs and the Xbox 360 HD-DVD player for about £110 is money well spent and should tide the family through those cold winter evenings with some quality cinematic entertainment.

So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to now and get your HD-DVD player in time for Christmas. See overleaf for the choices.
