From Kotaku comes news that the Microsoft HD-DVD addon for the XBox360 will sell for $199 US. This includes a “Universal Media Remote,” and for a promotional period will include King Kong as well. So – TCO for HD-DVD is potential as low as $499 (xbox core = $299, plus HD-DVD add on) – not a bad cost of entry and certainly competitive with PS3’s blu-ray hoopla and the BR players on the market.
