Yanked from here:

Quote
This Sunday best buy is including the heroes hd-dvd instantly with purchase of the 360 hd-dvd player. This will also qualify for the 5 free offer.

Pick between:
Aeon Flux, Babel or The Italian Job.
The Hulk, Pitch Black or The Thing.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Swordfish or Full Metal Jacket.
Firewall, The Frighteners or U2: Rattle and Hum.
Black Rain, Darkman or Troy.

I don't have a HD-DVD player yet, but I just might pick it up for all of this.

Sold!

I've already been tempted by the 5 free offer, but with Heroes tossed in I don't see how I can resist.  Is this Sunday only?

Pick between:
Aeon Flux, Babel or The Italian Job.
The Hulk, Pitch Black or The Thing.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Swordfish or Full Metal Jacket.
Firewall, The Frighteners or U2: Rattle and Hum.
Black Rain, Darkman or Troy.

Not sure what to get for choice set 1 and 4.  I saw Italian Job and it was decent enough but I probably wouldn't want to see it repeatedly.  I'd be interested in seeing Aeon Flux once, but with the terrible reviews that would probably be my only showing.  Don't know much about Babel.  Firewall classifies about the same as Aeon Flux.

Hmm...

I wonder if they will offer this online, even though I don't see anything on 5 category list other than Troy and Full Metal Jacket that I'd want.  Plus Troy probably isn't the cut they just released.

Because I can,

Plus there is some debate about maybe getting another 2 movies free instantly with it...

Too bad I just went through Heroes Season 1.  While it was super good, I have no desire to run through it again.

That's only if you buy a certain HD-DVD player (apparently it looks like according to the ad, they're inside the box or something). Why I cut that part out of my copy/paste.

Some people said that was a seperate 2 disc thing... the two in box for the Toshiba, but also 2 from best buy for any. Who knows though.

Oh, and if I did it I'd sell the drive and heroes (since I just watched it on netflix). But that would net me 5-7 free movies...

Well, they didn't let me get the extra two movie, but my HD-DVD drive and Season 1 of Heroes are up on ebay now. I'm keeping the UPC and rebate to get the mail-in movies. Figure I'll break even + get 5 free movies (although I'm only really excited about a couple).

I am seriously considering buying this to watch Heroes (never seen), rent the Star Trek season 1 hi-def (Because I truly believe unless they get their acts together that the exclusivity will run out with season 2 and then I can get them for BR), and  maybe a few randoms, and sell it on ebay.

Anyone know if these are selling well on the EBay?

I think most are selling for about $140 used without movies. So pretty well.
