The key is to act on GOOD sales and skip the Amazon game-playing. Amazon has good sales 50% off have to watch closely.

Warner Hove video just had 20% off + Free Shipping PLUS buy 2 get one free. That's Being There, Pan's Labarynth and Twilight Zone the Movie for 14.40 a piece.

You need to get out more; check my post above about under $20 and checking bluray.com!

That's silly; every Disney ad mentions BluRay FIRST: Bolt and other releases are coming out on BluRay prior to DVD. Granted, they are fighting to teach people that upconverted DVD is not the same thing...

That's ridiculous! BluRay is mentioned on TV, is splashed all over the ads and there is a high degree of awareness. I own and love SACD and to this day people don't know about SACD or DVD-A or understand what multi-channel audio is all about. You NEVER EVER heard or saw SACD on TV.

The industry sales figures for household penetration are actually quite good for this period in a new format's life;look them up and end this cycle of sour grapes.
