Microsoft has dropped the price of the HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360 down to USD 129.99 in the USA.
Major "Larry Hryb" Nelson aired the news on his blog, confirming a similar (but relative) 50-dollar drop in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Unfortunately nothing was said about Europe, with Microsoft UK unavailable for comment.
The increasingly beleaguered HD-DVD format recently lost the backing of Warner Bros., with the Daffy Duck maestro deciding to side with Blu-ray.
Even Microsoft seems to have seen its long-term demise, as it told us all it never says never and talks to Sony all the time, so adopting Blu-ray at a later date is possible.
