Well it is official; Microsoft has discontinued the HD-DVD Player ad on. As you may have heard all six major studios are have now moved to Blu-ray format exclusively. Along with Netflix, Best Buy and WalMart. So watch for the prices to drop and you might be able to pick up the connection for a steal. But will you have the movies to watch them on the addition, probably not.

Official statement after the jump.

As a result of recent decisions made by Toshiba, Hollywood studios, and retailers, Microsoft plans to withdraw from HD DVD. Xbox will no longer manufacture new HD DVD players for the Xbox 360, but we will continue to provide standard product and warranty support for all Xbox 360 HD DVD Players in the market. As we stated earlier, we do not believe this decision will have any material impact on the Xbox 360 platform or our position in the marketplace. HD DVD is one of the several ways we offer a high definition experience to consumers and we will continue to give consumers the choice to enjoy digital distribution of high definition movies and TV shows directly to their living room, along with playback of the DVD movies they already own.
