    they are selling the P&S version of AI for 2 dollars more than the LBX despite the same stated MSRP. Wow, just realized that I used five acronyms in one sentence.

    DDD = Deep Discount DVD

    It makes sense to pay more if you are "filling your screen", right? [​IMG]

    Don't count on this happening much longer. The studios and retailers are not interested in teaching the masses a lesson about widescreen, but in selling their product.

    I think ultimately studio's would like to see the whole DVD market convert to OAR/Widescreen. It would save them money if they didn't have to make a P&S version of a film.
    I believe they would like to see the masses accept OAR on DVD, the fact that AI P&S is selling for more may be a ploy to promote OAR.
    If I'm wrong, it's a nice thought. [​IMG]

    This is my nightmare thought of the day:

    When 16:9 TV's become the norm, will they start doing widescreen P&S versions of 2.35:1 movies to eliminate black bars on the widescreen TVs?

    I know people who got widescreens because they thought they would eliminate the black bars, and then were surprised and disappointed that many movies still had them (albeit smaller.)
