    The Disclaimer Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    I checked a couple of HD-DVD lists this week and never saw those releases. [​IMG]

    Can anyone point me to some GOOD HD-DVD release lists? [​IMG]

    Are you sure about that Amazon price of $15.97 for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?

    EDIT: Strange, now that price of $15.97 comes up. Anyhow, I ordered it and thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks as always, guys. There's some stuff on here I'll get eventually (Dumbo, the Criterion Dazed and Confused, the Stagecoach SE, Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic and the Doctor Who stuff), but nothing I've gotta have this week.

    Incidentally, that $4.99 assortment at Best Buy looks like the same Warner assortment that Wal-Mart's currently stocking at $4.88.

    It's a crapshoot, Mike, and Amazon is NOT the best place to keep track of HD DVD release dates or prices especially for Warner titles. However, Firewall, Constantine, and Perfect Storm are available on 6/6 from Amazon at $27.99, $19.99, and $19.99 (at least for me... it may be less for someone without Amazon Prime).

    You can also sign up with Amazon to receive 10% any HD-DVD or BluRay movie purchase for a year. This dropped The Perfect Storm & Constantine down to $17.99 plus free 2 day shipping if you have Amazon Prime.
