    DVD prices for older movies

    What is a reasonable price for an older title on DVD, i.e a DVD released over 8 years ago? Some of the deals for £3 DVDs on HUKD get lots of heat, in my opinion thats a pound too much. Considering it's age, it can be bought second hand for under £2 and the fact it's been on TV multiple times (sometimes in HD), I think it's new price value is lower than £3.

    Any thoughts?

    Depends how good the dvd is and how rare/available they are. I am waiting for schindlers list to drop in price, as its around £6/7 in most places, and that is old.

    I'd agree with that, obviosuly a 2 disc rare version is worth more, I am meaning a standard 1 or 2 disc movie, i.e Spiderman 2

    Depends how good/watchable the film is, 90% of old films should be sold in the poundshop

    I'm not going to condone the illegal downloading side of things, but this too is another method of being able to get a movie easily and cheap, thus effecting in a way sales of older titles.

    On a similar topic, some of the prices that people on this site are trying to sell blu rays for are way off target, you can buy some of them cheaper new on Amazon/Play.

    A lot of sellers are way off target with their prices, Some people seem to forget this is a site for people looking for bargains not things at rrp or more
