Its all very well if you have the option to buy the combi pack or the blu on its own cheaper but more and more releases are combi pack only.

Toy story one and two are the next in line for this type of release-its infuriating!

i see your point but they are handy when the kids are off to grannies who may not have a blu ray player but the kids want to watch there new movies

I think its so there is a copy for the kids to play in their bedroom dvd player or to play in the car or on a portable dvd etc?

yep-I get that and it would be fine if you had the option to just buy the bluray but the combi packs are the only option.

I see what you mean when studios dont give you the choice, plus the 4 disc mega pack is overkill just a bit :w00t:

Just sell the DVD version as disc only, you'll get something for it on ebay.

Shouldn't have to go through all that though.
We should have a choice.
Plus selling a disc only won't get you as much as in it's own case and sealed.

reckon a fiver would be possible for a brand new release on DVD without cover. You can always take the cover from your local Asda or something.

Including the DVD adds next to nothing to the cost...

Careful though, I don't want them cottoning on to this...

Its just marketing most people will think they are getting a better deal.Say they were going to charge £11.99 for the bluray single disk but instead charge £14.99 for bluray, extras dvd, dvd edition and digital copy. So they stamp some extra disks out at about 30p but make an extra £2.50 profit but you seem to be getting loads more for your cash.

The thing is they if they don't give you the option to have a blu only copy then how do you know you're paying more for the multi format copy?

I think they are great used the dvd loads of time on holidays or round a friends, and looking at upcoming releases such as up where you get 2 blus a dvd and digital copy for less than £17, which only a few years a go was the standard price for a single dvd, I don't see where the problem is
