Best Buy said Wednesday that it will send a $50 gift card to any poor soul that bought a HD-DVD player.
The tally will run about $10 million in gift cards, says Best Buy in a statement. So if you bought an HD-DVD player before Feb. 23--the approximate day HD-DVD died as a format--you'll get a gift card sent to you.
And if you bought an HD-DVD after Feb. 23 you're just not all that bright.
Although the Best Buy move is a little gimmicky at least it's something to ease that pain as you watch your HD-DVD player become more extinct by the minute.
