The rest of the price tag is packaging, shipping, advertising, royalties, etc... so they might as well throw in a DVD for the hell of it. I bought the Tron Legacy Blu-Ray, which came with a DVD. I kept the DVD for myself and let my family have the Blu-Ray because I don't have anything that can play Blu-Rays.
I don't see why you guys are whining about getting free stuff.
because its a pointless item i dont want, need or will ever use. dvd buyers have the option of only getting the dvd if they dont want the blu, dont see why they cant do the same for the other way. like i said there are titles that do offer the choice of blu only or blu+dvd but its getting rarer these days.
and it sorta defeats the purpose of advancing technology. blu is meant to be the new format to replace dvd, so why not give it the chance to get to that point. and even if it doesn't, then just sell both and let each group decide what they want and not force one to get it all when they dont want it all.
