oh, and apparently best buy might have messed up their pricing in the ad, so you can possibly fight for a 79.99 ultimate edition...interesting. Ultimate + 2 HD-DVDs for 79.99!

With the purchase of the player I get 5 free movies via mail-in rebate. Add to that the Matrix Ultimate HD-DVD set for 80 and 2 free instant movies that day!
This is also a promotion for Fathers Day. Also I would not have thought that this type of pricing would have been possible just last year at the formats beginning. I mean look:
1. Stand alone player...300
2. Matrix HD ...80
3. 2 free movies instantly...free
4. 5 free movies via mail...free
about 400.00 for an HD player with the Matrix + 2 movies to watch (or give for Fathers Day) + 5 more free movies via mail-in. damn! if I hadnt bought the 360's add-on HD player I would most definetly have bought in at this point. (which I still want to get into)
