Microsoft announced a price drop today at Comic-Con, but not the one everyone was hoping for.
Starting on August 1st, the Xbox 360 HD-DVD player will drop by a 20 spot and cost $179. Not much of a change, but they are throwing in 5 free HD-DVDs from a pool of 15.
They also announced that 300 will be available to download in HD on the Xbox Live Marketplace starting August 14th.
Microsoft is also offering fans a chance to download the pilot episode of Heroes in HD "for a limited time" in anticipation of the Heroes HD-DVD Season 1 box-set.
Now all they need to do is drop the price of the 360 itself.
