If Universal and the other HD-DVD studios want this format to win they need to stop charging the extra $$ for these combo disks.


They should just include the standard def for free. That way those who dont own an HD DVD player have a reason to upgrade in the future and early adopters such as ourselves arent forced to carry the finacial burden of supporting our format of choice. It makes it very hard to justify a $30+ combo when just an HD is $20+ using AMAZON of course.

$40 is just the MSRP.......if it actually retails for that much I'm going to freak.

I personally think the the studios have completely overthought the combo market and retailers like best buy are doing nothing to help. Why on earth would someone picking up the Departed dvd even consider purchasing the combo for twice the cost of the standard dvd? Personally I think anything more that $5 extra is too much to ask for the regular buyer.

While the idea of Combo's is not bad, they need to have the same price as regular HD-DVD's if they want me to buy them. I've only bought the few Combo's I have because I had gift cards.
