Must have been more leftover discs for SKoW, which was JUST released as part of the 5-disc Hughes collection.

Marketing is a wonderful thing.

Imagine going out for fine dining. Remember dining out?

You’re handed a menu by a tuxedoed waitperson, and perusing the prices notice that one of the average entrees costs $18. A very fair price. And you weren’t planning on spending a great deal more as that sitter at home, and parking have become part of the equation.

But then you look further, and notice that while the entree will run $18, that for $2 more you can also receive salad, appetizer, dessert, and a glass of ‘82 Margaux.

There’s one catch. If you pay the $18, and forego the rest of the meal, your parking will be complementary.

Life is just full of these difficult decisions. Especially when you know that you already have some dessert sitting at home. But you can give it to a friend.

I suspect Paramount just figures the individual movies will get more attention... individually vs. part of a package.

And it doesn't cost them anything to produce these beyond art for the new cases, so why not try to soak up sales to people who balked at the 5-movie set?

Which I agree seems ridiculous given how inexpensive the 5-movie package is.

But hey, in the 90s I'd pay $10 for a CD single rather than pay $12 for the whole album that held that song, so who am I to talk? :D
