Both next-gen disc formats promise to figure prominently as retailers officially kick off the holiday shopping season with a series of post-Thanksgiving sales this Friday.
Though we won't know til Friday whether these are the best deals to be had, several national chains have already unveiled plans to offer Blu-ray and HD DVD players at discounted prices.
Here's what we've been able to verify thus far. Watch this space for more next-gen player deals as they're revealed. Found one we haven't listed? Send it to us via our Tips and Submissions form (Black Friday deals only, please).
(Note that although we've provided links to product information from the retailer when available, most of the deals listed below are for in-store purchase only. Prices do not include manufacturer rebates; bundled in-box and mail-in discs also not listed.)
