    Die Hard Cash cow

    I was looking at play.com regarding Die Hard box set :), I'm suprised at Fox for being out a new box set which is nothing more then a cash cow. You have all 4 films with no special features for RRP of £34.99, yet for the same RRP you can get hold first three Die Hard Films spread over 6 DVDs in 5.1/DTS (play.com source).

    Have you seen a cash cow item post here?

    Ahem to that, thinking of starwars I can recall one release of the original 3 starwars films tag line was, this is the last time you will see the original starwars films every (this was before lucas added bits in to the films).

    I think Bladerunner might be the worst - based on a quick check of Wikipedia, the more obsessive of its fans will have had to shell out thirteen times for it now.

    Or can George Lucas beat that?

    And is Harrison Ford just insanely popular amongst sci-fi nerds or something?

    Where can you get all 4 films seperately for £25? Got any links?

    Look on play.com and you can get the first three films in 1.5/DTS spread over 6 DVDs, now Fox have brought out a new pack that includes Die Hard 4 with no special features only 4 DVDs and STILL charge the same price as the original pack, to me its simply cashing on the release of Die Hard 4 - cash crow ;-)

    But in the box set you get all 4, and lets be honest it would cost you at least another £12 for DH4 on its own. Who watches bonus disks anyway? I rarely do. This is a cheaper way for those who just want the films now, now, NOW! :lol:
