HD DVD fires back, slashes hardware & software prices  —  HD DVD's response to being unceremoniously jilted by Warner going into CES was ... nothing.  A canceled press conference, downtrodden Toshiba press conference and rumors of further losses left great doubt that red had anything left in 2008, but now HD DVD is firing back.
