Of course DVDs today
are cheaper than Blu-ray discs today. They are NOT high definition!
The key to my comment is to compare 2004 DVD prices, accounting for inflation, to Blu-ray disc prices today, for comparable-age movies (a 2002 movie in '04, and a 2011 movie today). I think the Blu-ray disc prices will be cheaper, plus they ARE high definition.
I have bought Blu-ray movies such as Ben-Hur or The Wizard Of Oz for $10 or less, in 2012-13 dollars. I call that give-away cheap. Maybe someone thinks they should be able to own such movies in superb quality for less money than that?
