It's probably easier to sell on the format until it becomes more mainstream. Just because the DVDs are that expensive doesn't mean the BDs will be as expensive(although it'll still be something like $150-200).
When has the BD version of something had a lower list price than the equivalent DVD version?
I'd imagine the reason the DVDs are so costly and also why they release seasons in halves is because they're trying to make as much profit as they can from the dedicated geek fanbase.
Of course. Which is why I don't believe this rumor. DVD still outsells BD 10 to 1. They will first release Season 4.5 on DVD. Then possibly Season 4.0 /4.5 pn BD. Then the complete series on DVD and individual earlier seasons on BD. Then the compete series on BD with additional features to encourage double dipping.
I don't understand why people are being so naive as to think we're going to get an early release of the complete series at a bargain price. It's the show that's science fiction. This is still reality.
