I don't think I have ever taken the DVD out of the package unless it was to sell it. Yes buying something you don't want to sell it can make sense for the consumer. I think it is lunacy that the studios sell us Blu-ray and DVD versions of the same movie when we only want one or the other, never both. I might have played a few minutes of a couple of the DVDs just to show somebody the difference between DVD and Blu-ray, switching back and forth, but if I have that is the only time one has been played at all.

When A dvd is packaged woth a blu-ray I eother loan it to friends who wish to see the movie who do not yet have a blur-ray player - more than I would have thought or my daughter uses it in her ;aptop for trips or in the car's entertainment system - essentially it is my 'portable' copy as I don't have a portable blu-ray player or bd drive in any of my laptops.

FYI - Got the presser for New Years Eve (the movie) and it's a Flipper (well, it says 1 disc for a BD/DVD).

Thanks. I don't actually post the Pressers anywhere but still on some of the lists. The odd thing is, the description in the search shows only one disc (which is not something a site would post).

It would be curious if they use a flipper instead of just a normal separate disc for the Blu-ray and DVD versions.

Can't see any reason to not use a regular combo setup for this release as its nothing out of the ordinary.

Thanks for the heads up. Keep us posted.

I can't imagine Warner not using Flippers for titles they have not already "prepped". The Warner press site shows 1 disc (not sure if you have access or not), so one or the other may be wrong. Thought I'd pass it along since it never actually says 2 discs...
