HD DVD players become DVD upscalers in format war fallout

This from Engadget: "In an attempt to clear their shelves of dead HD DVD weight, retailers are taking the obvious step of slashing prices. Others, like play.com are renaming the players."

I guess Circuit City is doing the same thing now too.

It sure is a good thing that Toshiba made the HD DVD format backwards compatable with DVD, otherwise they would really have a lot of dead weight laying around that could not be sold. Hit that link for picture and Google Cache proof. Pretty funny, and genious marketing.
