We were chatting about this at work the other day actually. The difference in quality isn't the issue, its the price. £17 for Tarantino's misspelt latest on BD, under a tenner on DVD., is a big difference, especially when a lot of people remember re-buying all their favourite on DVD to replace their VHS collection.
Personally, we've got a BD player but only have half a dozen films my missus has been given free. I refuse to buy good looking films unless they're good films
I've not bought a single BD film simply because I do not think *any* film is worth more than five euros. I can easily afford it, that's not the problem, but I cannot imagine watching even one flick a sufficient number of times to justify paying 20 euros. I'd rather buy it lower quality and get a couple of beers to get along with it for the same price, thank you very much
The industry really hasn't though this one through; DVD price over VHS was justified because the medium offered a plethora of advantages. Not so with BD however, better quality is the one and only thing you get...
