Default Blu Ray vs SD question

It seems like blu ray should be the best of the best, right? Best picture. Best sound.

Why then, do the SD versions of a movie continue to have the same supplements as a blu ray release and sometimes have better cover inserts?

I think the studios should push blu ray by truly making it the top product all the way around. If you want the movie on SD DVD, that's what you get. The movie. If you want the features, the fantastic HD picture and high quality sound, you buy the blu ray.

There are some blu rays (Jay and Silent Bob) that don't even match the extras that are on the SD DVD. That's simply nonsense. Freddy

Look at the # of DVD players vs BD players. Studios would be giving up a lot of revenue by alienating DVD. Most people in this economy aren't going to go out and purchase a $300 player for a handfull of movies. IMHO once blu has enough of a selection to fit the diversity that is humanity more people will upgrade.

BTW I think this topic is really Smackdown worthy.
