I got Shoot Em Up Blu-ray for $8.97 when Walmart had the sale on.
Today I picked up The Dark Knight Blu-ray for $26.49 competition pricing...Amazon Canada.
There are deals to be had, just have to look for them,some of the older ones can be had for $19.99,$16.97.
Today I was looking for Journey to the Centre of the Earth & the regular DVD was $27.99, the Blu-ray $29.99.
I can buy 100 Sony blank DVD-R for around $22.95,yet prices for DVD's are still too high. Even the Dual-Layer DVD blanks are cheaper when on sale.
Blu-ray Blank disks are still very expensive.Sure we would all like to have lower prices,but I guess the companies still have to make a profit or we get nothing.(We would have to see their books to determine the actual cost vs. the selling price).
I am not going to replace my entire DVD collection with Blu-ray as they look fantastic up converted,Just some really exceptional ones.
One example of high way robbery was the Mr. & Mrs Smith Blu-ray, you would think this thing was Gold Plated, it sold for $44.99 at FS,recently it dropped to $24.99.
Not all Blu-ray are created equally, Some Include a Digital copy, some do not even have a lossless sound track, so pricing should reflect that. It was mentioned on a recent review of The Dark Knight that Warner should have left the first disk for movie only, to improve the quality of the video,so what they spend should determine what we have to spend on a Blu-ray.
