DVD Combo on HD DVD Harry Potter release at no extra cost

now if THIS aint show that WB prefer HD DVD, i really dont know what does.

in my eyes this is a clearly message that WB prefer HD DVD over Blu-ray and want to sell more Harry Potter movies on HD DVD then Blu-ray.

Personal opinion: (I think the war is over and HD DVD will win after christmas, no matter if Blu-ray will outsell HD DVD 80:20, studios wont care, they do what they want)

Heh, I read the thread title as Dirty Harry. Good for them, though. Sure beats the $10 raping they were doing on the suckers who got 300 on HDDVD.

Geeze, I didn't know any studio was under obligation to sell their discs at a certain price point. I'm sure their market research shows that the consumer will buy discs at this price on HD DVD instead of the cheaper, no frills Blu-ray version at the same price. Remember, a lower price does not mean less profit.. They'll easily cover the lower price in increased sales. All of the people that were buying the Blu-ray versions because they were cheaper will now buy the HD DVD version at the same price because of the IME and yes, that it's a children's film and will play on the kid's DVD player as well.

Well....its about time this strategy was put to use. I think it would be a most effective strategy if we release nothing but combo's and sell them at reasonable DVD prices. Stock the REGULAR DVD isles aisles with these combos and.....BOOOOOOM!

when the final story is told, people will see that this was what all the fuss over incentives was all about, HD DVD strategy all along was to get low cost players, and push the combo concept and offer bundles that reduce the cost of the player to nothing, along the lines of the razor/blades system

Sony had the PS3 as the trojan horse, Toshiba and HD DVD had the combo as the trojan horse. Key to each approach was making it affordable.

We keep forgetting, HD was looked at as a Feature of DVD a natural upgrade path, low cost, low resistance evolution vs revolution

Why do you keep posting the same picture of the Harry Potter HD boxset to every thread?

Looking forward to this combo for the family. They mainly like watching in the theater but sometimes they watch in other rooms and its a little pricey to HD everywhere. Hope this becomes the norm.
