Hell will probably freeze over before Sony offers a similar deal in the US or Canada. :evil:

200 Swiss Francs is ~ $191. Amazon Germany is selling the 300 for $626, the 500 for $1190. Amazon USA is selling the 300 for $399, the 500 for $999. IMO, Sony is taking consumers HD players and selling them BD players at North American prices, which I guess is at least something :roll: .

Just another great way for them to completely bury HD DVD and ensure you buy only BD movies. They're still making a killing profit wise and eliminating any possibility of getting the fire sale hd movies, or anyone deciding to make any for a small market later on.
