Oh, I’ll still pick up a DVD from time to time. Opportunity, availability, desire and price often come into play. In the instance above, the DVD just happened to be there on a market stall for 50p (approx. €0.58c). In the last 12 months I’ve bought 10 TV series box-sets on DVD and 18 films. In the case of the TV box sets they’re either continuations of collections I’ve already started on DVD (King of the Hill, Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory) or they’re difficult buggers to get on blu-ray (Ghost in the Shell SAC). With the films it’s either a case of price and opportunity forcing an impulse purchase of something I mightn’t otherwise have bothered with (Under the Shadow and The Timber were both available in my supermarket for less than £3 each so I grabbed them) or, again, the added grief in acquiring the blu-ray (the Godzilla movies for instance; all available on Region A, very few available on Region B/Region free).
Ive still got almost twice as many DVDs as blus but the vast majority of my purchases are on blu-ray now. 151 films and 9 TV show box sets (6 of which were complete series sets) all purchased on blu-ray over the last 12 months.
