    I didn't believe it when I saw it, but at my local Target store, they had A Beautiful Mind Widescreen for $17.99 and the Fullscreen at $19.99.

    I'm absolutely pleased, but I have to wonder why the differentiated pricing? Any ideas?

    Just for the record, is the version of ABM that's out now the version we all want? Or is there going to be some kind of super-duper version coming out later?

    I also picked up my copy of A Beautiful Mind widescreen at Target for $17.99. The store I went to also had the full frame version for that price. By the way, this is a darn good price considering that Media Play had it for $22.99 and Wal-Mart had it for $21.88. Target also included a free A Beautifil Mind credit card-like calculator as part of the package.

    This will probably be one where they drop the second disk somewhere down the road instead of coming out with a better version later.
    I bought mine at Target as well for $17.99. Was shocked to see the "Fullscreen" version for a higher price. Also included with the disc was a very high quality [​IMG] calculator. That little addition really sealed the deal for me to buy the disc. [​IMG]
    ps. The term Fullscreen still bothers me. It implies, to me at least, that you are getting more picture with the fullscreen version than you are with the widescreen version.

    I would like to see more studios and retailers do this type of price difference. It might start encouraging people to give OAR movies a try. If they know certain people only want P & S, why not charge them more.
