    When a title goes OOP, is there any announcement of this made? Or does it just quietly go? Usually, I mean. How do you find out when a title does go OOP, and is there a way to find out if one is planned to go OOP soon?

    On a related note, is the Toy Story Ultimate Toy Box OOP or not? It seems to be getting harder to find these days. Fortunately, after not having any for quite a while, my local Best Buy got a few back in stock, and I just picked one up for $50.

    My experiences with this tend toward Criterion Collection titles. Sometimes I've seen them warn buyers weeks or even months in advance, but sometimes they just become OOP with no warning (At least according to the Criterion website).

    Most studios phase out titles unceremoniously.

    FYI, the Ultimate Toy Box is NOT OOP.

    Considering that the DVD format is still young, why are so many titles becoming out of print so fast? A while ago, I sold "Weird Science" on DVD for $51 on eBay, and that was all profit, since it came free when I bought "The Perfect Storm".
