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.uni....?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.

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

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.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

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

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. Thomas Eisenmann

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 ? Marek

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. - Steve

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.)
