Star Trek XI DVD - Preorder or not?
 
I'm not sure where to put this thread, but I thought this section of the forum would be more ideal.

So is any one pre-ordering their copy of Trek XI on DVD? I'm asking this because I'm wondering if it is even necessary, because I'm not sure if it's actually going to be a sell-out or not within a couple of weeks of its debut. I want it, but I'd be willing to wait if it does sell out.

Has anyone pre-ordered the disc yet or just going to take their chances when it comes out?

It is good to still have friends. A dear, connected friend sent me an advance copy of the DVD. I have been enjoying it for a couple of weeks now. My brother also plans to give me a DVD for Christmas. Knowing him, he will buy it the week it is released. I plan to leave my brother's copy unopened until needed. (I am hoping he splurges on the one with the 4 badges.)

I'll just hit up Best Buy or a store of ilk the day it is released.

A film like this will probably have a hundred copies in every store right when street date hits. So I don't really see the need to preorder. In fact, I never do.

I've never had a hard time finding a copy of a major release when it comes out, or anytime within a month or two of then. Or longer.
That said, the day it comes out, I go from work to Target to home, in that order.

And even if your local store(s) has no copy of a disc you're looking for - *that's* when you go looking on places like Amazon. What DVD ever sold completely out on its first day of release?

I didn't preorder it because i was afraid i wouldn't get it for a few days to a week if i did (if i understand correctly, it is released nov 17, so if you pre-order it from say, Amazon, you still have to wait for it to be shipped and wait for arrival.) So i plan on hitting Best Buy (or Costco, they are within minutes from each other here)...cos i want it THAT NIGHT!

It won't sell out. I'd only consider a pre-order for a DVD if there was some awesome exclusive attached to it.

I'm probably just gonna wait until the day it comes out.

So, which package is the best one to get? Assuming blu-ray, is there more than one blu-ray package to choose from?

I think I'll preorder it on blu-ray because I dislike going to big box stores.

I pre-order about 99% of my movie/book/music purchases (and that's a lot considering I have 1000+ DVDs and 100+ Blu-Ray). I really hate going to box stores (and their prices generally are a good bit more than online prices). Plus, free shipping and no tax at stores like Amazon or DeepDiscount make it a no-brainer for me.
