TH:AUJ BluRay Combopack Ripoff in USA Can't Post


Am I the only one who thinks WB is actually ripping off US customers by offering just the combo packs of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on BluRay?
The thing is, that Warner only lists the following discs:
- 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99
- 5-Disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack for $44.95
- 2-Disc DVD Special Edition for $28.98.
All of these releases seem to include the DVD of TH:AUJ for some reason. And while I understand the comfort of a combo pack, I don't see any alternative for people who are not interested in the DVD: what for, if you already get the film on a superior medium, why pay extra for something you don't really need?

Whereas in Europe, for example, there will be 2-Disc BluRay releases (2D) and 4-Disc 3D BluRay releases - and while they also have a digital copy (as a downloadable code), they won't contain the unnecessary DVD disc.

So what do you think about the whole combo deal?
