As for making two single disc versions, that's pretty lousy. The logistics of having two versions must already eat into the profits, but the price difference between making a BD-50 and a BD-25 must be lesser than a single-inventory BD-50 and that plus
the BD-25 that's been typical of SEs.
So there has to be some shady reason behind it, or there'd be no "movie only" version at all. They'd certainly make more money on the SE whether it was a single disc or two discs, so it seems fair to believe that the "movie only" version is intended as a deterrent, maybe to thwart the rental market, maybe to keep the pricing on BD software artificially inflated. Maybe both.
"Yes, we could make it more reasonably priced, but then we'll have to punish you by sending you back in time to 2006, with lesser picture and sound, and fewer special features."
Or maybe the bean counters at different depertments just aren't communicating, and this could be a perfectly innocent SNAFU.
