I'm pretty sure these bundled deals are only going to be around for the next 2-5 months after that you'll be able to buy the discs. I'd bet part of the problem is making the discs backwards compatible with current players, but more because the demand for 3D movies is going to be so low in the next few months that the studios didn't want to support a retail version of the discs.
Now by this Summer all the manufacturers will have their 3DTV and Blu-ray players to market and DirecTV will turn on its 3D signal, then the studios will be willing to sell 3D titles at retail. At this point I'd expect to see the very same exclusive 3D titles on the store shelves.
The real concern is that so far there are only going to be like 5 3D movies available this year. I really hope the studios are just playing this close to the vest and really plan to blow it out this Christmas. I'd really like to see closer to 20 3D titles available by Thanksgiving. So about 3 movies from each major studio.
How good could it be if it isn't HD?
