Default Would you still be collecting if the prices were high?

If the price of a Blu-ray was at the level it was 2-3 years ago like $25 and up would you be as big of a collector now?

I really think price is a big factor in my buying decision. Unless it's something I just can't wait for. But usually my blindbuys and impulse buys are based on a drastic price drop.

We had so many more great sales 2-3 years ago during the format war. It makes me almost wish HD-DVD still existed, just so we could get another Amazon BOGO....almost.

I'm a new collector but I wouldn't have started buying Blu-rays if I wasn't able to pick up my favorites for $15 or less. $20 is my max.

I made myself a guideline back when HD DVD came along and that was to spend no more than $20 for a title. I kept the promise for HD DVD until it's untimely demise and I have only broken a couple times for BD. If eBay did not exist I'd probably have 150 fewer titles than I do now.

I wouldn’t have as many as I do right now.

I came into blu-ray w/the intention of buying movies like iron man, the dark knight, and avatar on blu and getting movies like van helsing, wolverine, and harry potter on dvd.

But the prices have been so low for so long, all of my purchases have been on blu.

I had that same idea but I had such a small DVD collection before that it didn't make a difference. I put off starting a real movie collection for some time as I didn't want to spend money on an inferior format, but since getting a PS3 I've decided to go all blu-ray.

The most I'd be willingly to pay for a Blu Ray (non-boxset) is $16.00. However if it's a title that I really want to see I'll make an expectation.

No, my collection would be less than half of what it is now.

I'm at the point where I have most of the already-released catalog titles I want, and the majority of those were bought used. Now I'm just picking up new releases mostly and I try to get them on sale for $20 or less when possible.

Not often is price a big factor. If I want it, I will get it, if I am short of funds I'll wait a couple of weeks until the entertainment budget is flush again.

Don't eat out or drink booze for a week an whallah a couple of extra "Franklins" are still in the wallet Monday morning (with no hangover).

No I wouldn't be, at least not as much, got very sick of the $25-35 prices, the prices today are infinitely better.

This, pretty much.

Though I can say that there's a bunch of movies in my collection that I only bought because they were super cheap ($10 or less). So I might not have those if they were more expensive. Like, I wouldn't pay $20 for Vertical Limit, but I'd pay ten.

I just started buying blu rays since my laptop can play it (don't have a home setup yet) but I am still hesitant to buy some because I don't want to be had. I hate the fact that studios purposely not give extras to the American Market, just so they can continue to double dip. What is it going to take to get the same extras foreign blu rays get?

I wait for sales and all that anyway,and if I truly want one that's a bit expensive (maybe 20) I'd buy it, but the lack of special features prevents me more than anything.

IMO, prices are still too high on release day. Anything over $19.95 for new releases or $14.95 for catalog titles is TOO EXPENSIVE. There are a bunch of movies that I want but the pricing for these titles are over $25 each. Personally I think it is a mistake to make customers wait until prices drop. About half of the time I no longer want the Blu-ray after waiting for several weeks/months. In many cases, by the time pricing falls in line, the excitement is for these titles has passed.

The other big factor for me is quality. I avoid at all costs movies with excessive DNR, EE, and overall crappy encode.

To answer the question: No.

Yes you would think studios would do more to drop release day prices like Disney does, especially since it would seem most movies get most of their sales the first week they come out.

That's how I was as well. I only have 16 movies on DVD. I was never into collecting movies until around a year ago.
