Attention, people who collect obsolete technology
-- here's the perfect chance to, um, add some obsolete technology to your collection! While Microsoft recently announced they're no longer producing HD DVD add-on drives
for the Xbox 360, they are unloading their remaining supply at a bargain-basement price of $50, as a Microsoft spokesperson told Bloomberg
Sure enough, online retailers from Circuit City
to Best Buy
are listing the defunct accessory for 25 percent of it's original price
. At that price, the remaining stock could go fast. Then again, with the prospect of more HD-DVD discs looking less than good
, maybe $50 is still too expensive to unload.
