Amazon/Play/Tesco £32.99.

Follow the first six years of Harry Potter's matriculation at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with this box set that contains the original video releases of HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE, HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, and HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE. The films, based on the writings of author J.K. Rowling, chart Harry's progress as he discovers his magical powers, meets his soon-to-be two best friends, learns how to play the school sport, Quidditch, and begins to understand how the forces that killed his parents are still out to do him harm. In the sixth thrilling instalment, Harry returns to Hogwarts for another year of schooling and learns more about the dark past of the boy who grew up to become his arch nemesis, Lord Voldemort. While trying to thwart Voldemort's evil plans and save both the Muggle and wizarding worlds from imminent disaster, Harry is struck by the love bug that seems to be going around Hogwarts. Fortunately, Dumbledore, his trusty mentor, is on hand to prepare him for the monumental battle that's looming ever closer.

I can see your point but at a touch over £4 per film, I'm tempted to get this and the other 2 individually. Of course there will be a box set of all of them come Christmas 2011 but I bet that won't drop in price as quickly as this and previous collections have when they don't have to shift stock for a new set with the latest film in... if you get my drift.

i remember when they were touting blue ray in the whole format war that the discs would have massive capacity....so why do we need a boxset? surely they could fit it all on one disc.

If you put standard def quality on to the blu-ray disc, you would get a lot more films on it but these are high definition films which need significantly more data storage.

They are 50GB usually so you could have a box-set on one blu-ray disc but it would only be in DVD quality. Blu-ray quality is very much higher than DVD. 24 x 2 megapixel images per second (1080p) takes up a lot of space as does uncompressed sound and all of the extra features (I'm sure someone will tell me that my 1080p figure is wrong). I think people like having a physical box for each of the things that they have bought, anyway.

Great price,but incomplete boxsets are a complete waste of money.
#18
2 things.

1. I would wait untill all the films are out before I would buy a boxset.

2. The American versions are the new full uncut Ultimate Editions with extra scenes and loads of extras (3 x Blu-Rays per film) unlike the UK versions.

No just BD games contain padded info due to the slow read speed of the PS3's BD drive making access to information far quicker if they duplicate it. It's developers attempting to overcome the drive's unfortunate shortcomings for early release.

BD Movies contain no padding (unless you count the deleted scenes as padding!) and you'll find that the audio is actually the most space-consuming, not the video.

i think that's true, though they do carry a 5.1 pcm audio track, which according to what i've read on avforum is similar to the lossless formats provided by dts and dolby..my bluray of casino royale has a lossless pcm audio track and its sounds pretty good..

Each movie, with just one audio track and no extras, would be about 25GB.

Depends on a number of factors including the average bitrate, codec used etc. Some films are around 20GB, whereas othere can be around 40GB.
The US release of Braveheart is about 42.8GB
Whereas, the UK release of Monsters Inc. is about 22.1GB

You should get on the phone to Sony. It sounds like they could use a man with your extensive knowledge before they decide on their new format.
