Re: $29.99 for the DVD/Blue Ray, Really?

Yes. I will pay (if necessary) $29 for the Blu-ray of this movie.

Re: $29.99 for the DVD/Blue Ray, Really?

Although according to trekmovie, it seems the MSRP breakdown is as follows:

1-disk DVD — $29.99
2-disk DVD — $39.99
3-disk Blu-ray — $39.99

That does seem high.

The third is basically just a digital copy.. However, I'm definitely getting the Blu.

Re: $29.99 for the DVD/Blue Ray, Really?

Sounds like standard pricing for a new Hollywood popular blockbuster on Blu-ray.

I wonder how much Paramount will charge for a special collectors edition around 2014?
Will you double dip for 'Star Trek XI' ?
Just buy the Blu-ray in 2009. It was mastered in 2K and HD is only a slight step down. This edition in November has the lossless 5.1 surround audio.
Odds are you will buy a Blu-ray player before 2014 and before an estimated time before a special collectors edition would be out anyway.

I would still pay $39 for the Blu-ray.

I mean I liked ST:XI , is the DVD Realy worth 30 bucks. I don't think I've ever paid that much for any single movie. I would gladly pay 20-25 dollars , but 30, Realy? All i can say is it better have a lot of goodies.
There's already a thread about the DVD release, and I don't think we really need a whole separate thread to talk about the price tag, do we?

Merging...

What is so wrong with double dipping? You really want dusty old copies of ST XI sitting in shops forever, or why can't Paramount Home Video have the right to freshen up their product every few years, add new stuff, take advantage of new tech innovations, change the packaging and do the promotion all over again, picking up new audience and giving longtime fans a new treat?

Yeah, ST XI should only come out on Betamax and Super 8.

Not high at all, all 3 are standard MSRP price points. Expect them to hit stores at around...

19.99/23.99/24.99 for each.

Expect some people to say that the real prices, when they are released, are a reflection of Paramount quivering to fan demands that the prices be lowered because they knew that the film wouldn't be successful with just them buying it.

For the record, Amazon is already showing a more reasonable and expected list price of $27.99 for the 3 Disc collection.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I'll buy it the week it comes out. I wonder if Best Buy/Futureshop will be cheaper than Costco? Oh and I think I need to buy a Blu-Ray player now!
