Wal-Mart's Black Friday ads just hit the net and it looks like they have a number of newer Blu-Ray titles for $15.

Anyone knows if is it possible to get a PS3 w/ SACD?
I'm thinking on buying a PS3 for Xmass. Seems like most newer models don't support SACD anymore.

Bingo. I just came to this same realization about a week ago. I had been | |<-- this close to buying a PS3 a few months ago when I learned that they had SACD support. \:\) But thought I'd wait until Christmas and make it a gift to myself & family. In gearing up to buy one, I double-checked the specs on the 'newer' models. Nope, No SACD support any more. Phooey!

Six months ago, a friend of mine bought a PS3. The salesman explained the 100$ difference between the 40G and the 60G as "more disk space for Internet games". My friend bought the 40G... and is now looking for a SACD player!

EDITED: Just realized we are end of November; so it is NINE months ago that he bought the PS3!

I guess it's safe to say SACD is dead, bummer.

Nothing to do with SACD being dead. Sony was just trying to find a way to cut cost because they still sell the PS3 below cost. SACD was not a deal-maker for the PS3 so they dropped it.

OK, everybody told me about the 6th Ave "AVS" deal on the Denon 3808 (was told $1099 today).

On their homepage, they have a link to a Pre-Black-Friday deals page, where they show the Panasonic 35 Blu-Ray player for $229 (already a good price), but it INCLUDES two BD titles. Unfortunately, the guy I talked to knows nothing about the titles...how their chosen, where they come from, etc...

Anyone know if Panasonic is doing a promo with free BD discs? I'm really tempted to jump, but if the titles are Ishtar and WaterWorld....meh....

Answer quick... I've got my CC in my hands.....

Well, the plot thickens...

I checked Panasonic.com, and sure enough, they show a two-BD movie mail-in offer. (I was there a couple of days ago and didn't see it, so it must be a newish promo). Amazingly, I just told Joyce a couple of hours ago that the first two movies I'd likely buy would be Nightmare Before Christmas and Ratatouille, and those are the two movies being offered.... AMAZING COINCIDENCE!

But here's the thing: The rebate form says in fine print on the bottom: "Store receipts must emanate from same
state as consumer." There was a bit of talk of this on the AVS forum, but nothing definitive. Has anyone ever heard of a rebate that forces you to buy local?
