Blu-ray Counters HD DVD Offer on Amazon
Just a day after Amazon.com announced an offer that bundled three free HD DVDs -from a list of 55- with purchases of certain Toshiba players of the format, the backers of rival Blu-ray Disc have launched a similar promotion, also on Amazon, Amazon announced Friday.
The Blu-ray offer, though, only applies to those purchasing a 60GB or 80GB Playstation 3 from the online retailer, and does not include any of the other Blu-ray Disc players. Like the HD DVD offer, the Blu-ray version asks customers to choose three titles from a long list, which in Blu-ray’s case includes 300, Casino Royale, The Departed, Dirty Dancing, March of the Penguins, the first two Pirates of the Carribean films, Reservoir Dogs, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Both promotions exist on top of existing offers in which purchasers of the hardware receive five free movies straight from the manufacturer.
