It is interesting to compare the reactions to two high profile, upcoming catalog releases that are exclsuive to each side- and also carry a premium over comparable releases. On the one hand, you have Close Encounters, which carries 25% premium over what were previously the highest priced single title, single disc releases (Fox films, with their $39.99 msrp). Sony is piling on the extras and taking pains to include all three previous versions of the film to make this first release of the title on HD a more or less definitive one. Over on the HD DVD side, Paramount is kicking out another version of the original Star Trek, with a first season featuring the new cgi effects- along with copious extras. However the price represents a 100% premium over the original sets dvd price and a greater than 100% premium over comparable season sets (like Universals Heroes which also feature oodles of HD exclusive extras). The prime demographic for this material seems to be not only not enthusiastic for the release, but dismissive and in some cases openly hostile- almost entirely due to the price point. And I have seen maybe one comment out of 100 where the poster expressed an interest in getting into the HD technology just for this set. I've been a huge supporter of HD DVD in the past, but to witness stuff like this really makes me question why my affections lie where they do.
