... it's mindblowing. just this afternoon i picked up the dvd & dl-dvd copies over at futureshop. why i bought both, cause not all my tvs/cpu's w/players do hd-dvd & many of my friends don't have a hd player. plus .. i buy anything that's pj related at a store i walk into. :P

the price difference for just the 2 disc dvd set to the hd-dvd copy is 2 dollars. 2 dollars?? what the ... dvds are way cheaper then a hd-dvd disc. 2 dvds don't come close to a price of a hd-dvd disc.

    It's because HD DVD is dead and now they are clearing them out. ITW will be on blu-ray probably in a few months.

    it's been around the same prices months back with hd-dvd films & blu-ray films with the same day releases to the dvd releases. dvds should be getting cheaper & cheaper by the month .. then their hd brothers. 2 buck difference is just nuts. but what am i saying. record stores here are still selling single cd albums for $23.99.

    i can see itw being released on blu-ray down the road. making the into the wild hd-dvd copy a collectable item.

    Only reason prices are so close is that HD-DVD is dead and everyone is trying to clear their inventory as quickly as possible to be able to stock higher profit items in their stores (Blu Ray etc.).


    as for ITW HD-DVD becoming a collectible, I don't think that's going to happen.

    that's like calling betamax a collectible. I love that hd-dvd is no more. makes my ps3 purchase much better.

    ...a collectible item to the five people who will still own HD-DVD in two years.

    And who's to say any of them will care about Into the Wild or Eddie Vedder?

    Almost as collectible as the ITW BetaMax release....

    Thankfully, HD-DVD players can play standard DVDs and upconvert them to look pretty good on an HDTV- they are better than betamax in that sense
