Xbox 360 HD DVD drops to $179, tempts with 5 free movies

If you've been on the fence about picking up the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive, you might be pleased to know that the deal has been sweetened a bit.

Just announced at the San Diego Comic Con, Microsoft is dropping the price of the external HD DVD Player from $199 to $179 in the United States starting August 1st. It gets better as five free HD DVD movies are offered to anyone who purchases the add-on between August 1st and September 30th of this year.

Although prices are quickly dropping on HD DVD players, this is still going to be one of the cheapest ways to get a high-definition disc format in your home (provided you own an Xbox 360). Also, keep in mind that this drive also functions as a player for your PC or Mac with the proper drivers.

The 'free movie' deal is really just an extension of Toshiba's "Perfect Offer" promotion, which was originally reserved for Toshiba HD DVD players. This is a mail-in offer, and the discs are chosen from a selection of 15 titles. You can find a list after the jump.

Lastly, Microsoft is releasing 300 'on demand' on Xbox LIVE Marketplace on August 14th to promote the movie release on HD DVD. In a similar promotion, the first episode of Heroes will be made available for download to promote the release of Heroes: Season 1 HD DVD, though this one will be a free download.
