    They might need to re-adjust that figure.

    The press release says WM is spending $150 a player.

    I doubt they'll try to sell them at double that - probably nearer $199, unless some of the figures in the initial press release are wrong.

    It could well be mate

    US$101 million US investment, for 2 million HD DVD drives at $50 each for HD DVD players to be sold by Wal-Mart. It's a joint venture between Wal-Mart, Fu Yuan, TDK, and Great Wall.
