I don't agree on the extras point. The whole reason to buy a bluray or DVD in my opinion is for the extras. There are plenty and cheaper legit ways to watch a movie without buying it. I only buy stuff I really like and since I really like something then I'd like to see a little behind the scenes footage. I love that stuff. The point I'm making with the BBG discs is that they are very expensive but contain nothing extra at all when the DVD release is half the price and is jam packed with extras. The bluRay does have a vastly improved picture that's for sure but still it's a gery expensive price for the bear bones set. That's Japan for you. All media here is highly priced and it has nothing to do with video on demand or rentals. It's all down to goverment bull shit as one member who posted here pointed out once when his company tried to release a DVD cheaper than the standard rate. HCK I think was his name.
