DVDs are Bourne Again

February 21, 2010

The just released Bourne Trilogy comes with an innovative twist. It contains both Blu-ray and DVD versions.  While there have been other movie releases that have both versions on two separate disks, this is the first time that both versions are on one disk; one side is blu-ray, the other is DVD. The studios did this when DVDs first came out: Austin Powers had a widescreen version on one side and a full screen version on the other.  It was a great idea while people were transitioning to HDTVs. The studios need to keep doing this to help folks build up their blu-ray collections to encourage them to make the leap. It’s also good for folks who have made the jump to blu-ray but still have portable DVD players. Yes, what would a long car trip be without the portable DVD player.
