I'm surprised so many people still do buy DVDs and that they are still common in stores. That format should be dead by now. BD is so much better.


However much I agree it's often just not worth the company producing the Blu-ray knowing it won't sell enough to be worth it.
You only have to stand in a supermarket at the physical media section to hear "That's the Blu-ray, where are the DVDs... they'll be cheaper and I can't see the difference anyway" regularly (possibly due to poor eyesight, or often (I suspect) don to a poor TV set up... or just people being ight with money).
Interestingly when they did a survey of Amazon Wish Lists, significantly more people had Blu-rays of  movies listed than DVDs... but when they analysed what they bought themselves it was usually the DVD. They may want the HD but are willing to 'settle' for the sake ofa pound or two

So much stuff, like classic TV is only available on DVD, 1) will never be on Blu-ray and 2) was shot on video so wouldn't benefit even if it was so those I'll buy on DVD... if it's available on Blu I'll get it on Blu
