Best Buy slashes Blu-ray catalog title prices A newly leaked Black Friday ad is showing that giant retailer Best Buy will be slashing Blu-ray prices to their lowest ever, even undercutting Target's recent promotional initiative.
Catalog titles such as The Departed will sell for $7.99 in the high-definition format. New releases, such as Wolverine and Monsters vs Aliens are selling for $9.99. A few more expensive titles, such as the new Gladiator BD, are selling for $12.99, all lower price points than have ever been previously available.

Many DVDs will go on sale for $3.99, such as last year's blockbuster The Dark Knight.

Additionally, Best Buy will be offering Sony and Samsung BD-Live Blu-ray players for $149, matching Amazon and Wal-Mart. Its own Insignia brand players will retail for $99.

Not bad Best Buy, they are one of the few choices around here now that Circuit City and Media Play are just distant memories. This may actually draw me out to a retail shop.

Same here, but in my case it would be to finally plunk down the $$ for a blu-ray player.

I don't want to spend $$ to update my existing DVD collection, since once I see the movie, I don't want to see it again unless I'm on vacation.

At those prices, I might have to buy a few of the latest hollywood abortions...just to see all the explosions in HD.
