    I'm getting sick and tired of these combo releases. Also, I hope I'm wrong, but I don't believe that low price. If the price is correct then I withdraw my complaint on this combo release.

    Robert,

    I pulled the price off of the link. It certainly seems low to me. One can only hope.

    Just checked the Universal web site, http://homevideo.universalstudios.co...?childId=36605 and while the HD is listed for December release, there is no mention on it being a Combo disk, and no price listed.

    DVD EMPIRE has it listed at $20.99. I pre-ordered it with them.

    It looks like it is a HD only disk. Usally, DVDEmpire lists it as a Combo if it is.

    The cover art picture at dvdactive.com clearly shows it as a combo disc.

    I know many people don't like the combo idea, but it makes sense for someone who has a HD-DVD player in the HT room and a lowly DVD player in, say, the bedroom.

    Sounds like a combo disc with a price drop. Sold, happily.

    They must be reading the posts..... If this is a new pricing structure for Combo's from Universal, it is very good news. Now if they only used the three layer process 2 HD, 1 SD.

    A good development, if true. As long as it has a full 30GB HD, it will turn this product from a marketing negative to a positive. I'll buy without reservations.

    why 2HD / 1 SD ?

    BB and F&F3 are both 30GB/ 9GB (both sides DL)
    not 30GB/4.7GB so why to have only 1SD ?

    There is a new spec on the table for a disc with two HD layers and 1 SD layer on the same side of the disc. Right now, the spec only supports single sided discs that have 1 HD layer, 2 HD layers, or 1 HD / 1 SD layers. Then there are double sided discs.

    Was just at DVD Empire today and it listed Field Of Dreams as a combo disc and the front cover of the HD-DVD has a combo sticker on it.

    The ONLY reason I don't like combo is the flipper.

    Make it a hybrid, and I'm sold with a decent price, $5 premium acceptable.

    I was refering to the single side they are working on. 2 HD/1SD on one side.

    So, unless I'm missing something, it looks like all of the bonus material is ported over... including the 90-minute documentary (the "scrapbook"). So that is a good thing. At only $20, this may be just the second movie that I already own on DVD that I rebuy for HD DVD.

    (Though I wish studios would start enhancing bonus features for widescreen, especially now that we are in the HD age. So few DVDs have done that, in fact the only one I can think of off the top of my head is the Lord of the Rings extended editions.)
