Microsoft denies OEM credits for HD DVD

Posted by David Hunter at 10:59 AM ET.

Concerning the story earlier this week that Microsoft was pressuring PC Makers to install HD DVD drives and was considering offering “credits” to those that do, Paul Thurrott reports a denial by Microsoft (see the update at the bottom):

Microsoft tells me that it has “not offered PC [makers] special discounts or financial terms related to Windows Vista in exchange for adoption of HD-DVD technology.” The “EE Times” report, it seems, was so off-base, Microsoft chose not to respond.

Which begs the question of what Microsoft actually feels they can do to promote HD DVD among OEMs, although you can see that this an area where they need to tread carefully.
