Default Are their an unusal number of sales for High Def Movies?

I never had a DVD collection, i actually was about to start one then caught on to high def and started from their. But ive noticed their have been some great deals so far, i was able to pickup Harry Potter 1 - 5 and Oceans 11-13 for about 15 bucks a movie. Are these 25% deals a norm that u could expect as High Def movies become a standard? Because i see standard DVD's going for 20 still, while im able to pickup HD DVD's for 5 dollars less alot of the time.

HD-DVDs, on average, are a bit more than than standard DVDs. As someone who has collected DVDs for 8 years I can tell you that there were a lot more sales in the early days of DVDs than there are for HD-DVDs.

Actually, I totally disagree. Specifically on the grounds of the time-frame that you have mentioned. If you've been collecting DVDs for 8 years, then you weren't actually a participant during the early days of the format, because DVDs have now been available for over 10 years (since mid-1997). I got my first DVD player in December 1997 (a first generation RCA that cost $450) and I remember the extreme lack of sales for the format, both hardware and software. I think that the advancement of internet shopping in the 10 years since has played a big role in the way these things are sold. Adoption of DVD was slow too, and I think it took much longer for discs to fall below $20, particularly from Fox.

^^^^^^^^^^^^ Agreed.
It makes my laugh some of the prices I used to pay for DVDs, but then again I used to pay even more for laserdiscs. I looked over my order history on Play.com,(before it separated into two companys, it handled R1 & R2 sales), and I can't believe how much I paid for the 5 Star Collection Die Hard Trilogy as well as the original Superman Collection. Jeez...

I can't believe how much I paid for the first series of X-files compared to what they cost now.
