In what may be the best next-gen disc offer yet, Best Buy has just kicked off a new 2-for-1 sale that includes a collection of the most sought-after Blu-ray and HD DVD titles currently on the market.

Although "buy one get one free" offers on high-def discs have become almost commonplace this holiday season, this new Best Buy offer is unique in that it includes such newly-released and best-selling titles as 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,' 'Spider-Man 3' and 'Transformers.'

The retailer is advertising a total of 30 qualifying discs (see lists below), at prices ranging from $19.99 to 34.99. After the discount, that brings the effective price per disc down to somewhere between $10.00-17.50.

The sale is scheduled to run today through next Saturday, December 22, and is being offered both in-store and online.

In another bonus for online shoppers, the retailer is also waiving shipping fees on all orders of HD DVD and Blu-ray discs. (Note that readers have reported that each pair of titles must be purchased as separate transactions in order for the discount to be applied at checkout.)

The complete list of titles included in the promotion follows below.
