Already have it, but I did get the following Blu Ray titles today:

Planet Earth - $38
POTC Trilogy - $38
Die Hard Collection - $38
The Mummy - $9
The Mummy Returns - $9
The Hulk (ed norton) - $9

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I have a combo player, and already had it on HDDVD... but for $9.99 I ordered a copy on Blu ray and already gave away my HD DVD version to someone else with an HD DVD player.

I didn't want to fight crowds, so I ordered online from Amazon last night.

I should have done that this morning. I left the screen up for Mrs. Smiddy, but she suggested running by BB. It was too late... :(

Already have it on HD DVD, the only movie I would double, triple or hell in my case quadruple dip for is Terminator 2. (Have the French, UK and German HD DVD versions and have the Japanese Blu Ray Steelbook on pre order).

That's an interesting perspective...I like all the Shrek flicks but I'm not going to double up on them. I apparently don't like them as much as you like the Terminator 2 flick. I would however get the Blu Ray Transformers movie for $9.99 (if available) to double up however. Humm, maybe I need to change my avatar? :D

I did it/will do it due to the difference in transfers and various extras included between each of them plus the fact the German HD DVD and Japanese are Steelbooks. At the time the domestic T2 Blu ray had what was/still is sub standard PQ. :) Plus ordering the Japanese version also gave me a chance to preorder the Batman Anthology that is not yet available domestically. :D

It is one of my rare doubles as well on HD DVD and Blu ray.....my motive was the different audio options on the 2 versions.

The video is identical, but the Blu Ray has updated codecs.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

The only changes in Transformers is the added/updated audio codecs.

It looks/sounds spectacular in both HD DVD or Blu Ray.

Even though I already have it on HD/DVD
I was at a RedBox on Saturday.

They had it for $7 USED.
So I snagged it and put it in the same case as the HD-DVD.
That way I have it for both now.

You forgot about how "AWESOME" it looks and sounds on Blu Ray at least according to Michael Bay. :lol: :D

I will say though, this one's on the re-buy list for me, I did have it on HDDVD but didn't re-buy it right away. I suspect it will continue to come down in price until it should be easy to get for $12 anywhere.

It was available for the Black Friday sales at several locations for $9.99 on Blu Ray.

I thought I saw it for $11.99 on one of the Cyber Monday sales...but don't recall which stores had it at that price...

I will be purchasing it too, even though I missed out on the $9.99. According to Mrs. Smiddy, this was for 20 BDs at our local BB. So unless you were there at o'dark'thirty, you where out of luck. I hope Stuart and hdtvfan0001 are correct and prices come back down to less than $15...

I am getting fixated though on BluRay Discs at the moment and I've yet to dig out the new BD Player. :D

This post is just a little bit OT,but not too much. :)
I stopped by two Wal-Mart locations in our area today.They currently have several (20-30) Blu-ray titles priced from $10-$14.99.Some of the titles that I saw in this price range were:
Terminator 2 - $10
Predator - $10
The Road Warrior - $14.99
Young Guns - $10
The Fugitive - $14.99
The Shining - $14.99
Out For Justice - $10
Under Siege 2 - $10
They also had the first 3 Rambo BR's priced at $10 each.

I haven't checked Wal-Mart's site to see if they have dropped their prices yet.These prices were in stores.Thought I would give folks a heads up on the find. :)
