MS unveils Xmas HD-DVD deal

Five free films with every one.

Microsoft has popped its Santa hat on and revealed a new deal to get people buying its HD-DVD player, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

Now, when you buy the Xbox 360 add-on, you will be given five free films to go with it.

You will get to choose from: Serenity (hooray), The Chronicles of Riddick, Hulk, Children of Men, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Troy, Full Metal Jacket, Corpse Bride, The Prestige, Swordfish, Black Rain, Dreamgirls and World Trade Centre.

All you have to do to claim yours is fill in a form and send it, along with the barcode from your freshly bought HD-DVD drive, to Microsoft - who will post out your selections with 28 working days.

The HD-DVD add-on costs around GBP 115, and the offer will run until the end of January.

A similar initiative has been running in the US since the beginning of August.

The move also comes two weeks after Sony slashed the European price of the PlayStation 3, which comes with a built-in Blu-ray drive lest you ever forget.

If facts were turned into pixels, GamesIndustry.biz could fill an HD resolution in seconds.
