I absolutely agree! Why would you buy a dvd, and put it in a blu-ray player in the first place? The whole point is to "move up" to the next generation of media.With prices coming down slightly (comparable to a collectors dvd edition) It doesn't make any sense to waste your money on dvd's.(most people given the choice would spend 5 bucks more for the collectors dvd any ways).Once the world is ALL 2.0, and uncompressed, you would be insane to not try it out for yourself!
