every bit counts right
and I think the concern about the pricing is sue to the weird discrepancies in the different prices for the different sets.
The 5 disc BD and HDdvd non briefcase sets are only $5.00 more than the 4 disc SD sets, yet the briefcase BD and HDdvd set is $21.06 more then the briefcase SD set. (MSRP of course...) Why is the BD, HDdvd briefcase set SO disproportionate?
The Briefcase SD set lists for $44.00 more than the regular SD set, plus you get the 5th disc.
The Briefcase HD set lists for $60.00 more(!) than the regular HD set and the disc amount is the same...!
That's why some are concerned. BIG price discrepancy for just the case and goodies with the same amount of discs for the HD sets....
Or put it this way, the SD set with the briefcase and 5th disc is about 2 and a 1/4 times the cost of the 4 disc SD set. And with the briefcase you also get the 5th disc which is unavailable otherwise.
The Briefcase HD set with NO extra disc to sweeten the deal is 2 and a 1/2 times more than just the 5 disc HD set. That's a big difference...
$34.99 - $78.92 (and you get a 5th disc too)
$39.99 - $99.98 (same amount of discs in each...)
So, if the prices are indeed correct, WB is REALLY gouging the HD owners who want the case. $60.00 more without that extra disc to sweeten the deal...
