    After today's tv news coverage of the success of DVD and the low cost of hardware, I reckon we are long overdue price cuts on ALL DVD software. One American guy interviewed quoted $10 for a DVD over there. It seems we are such suckers in the UK. The manufacturers know we have happily been paying over the odds for CD so they know we will do so for DVD. What's the betting nothing changes even after an EU investigation into pricing is completed? Forgive my cyncism and a MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!

    You make a fair point.Fortunately many people know about the much cheaper discs in the US/Europe/Australia.It is the less well informed who will suffer,paying Dixon's prices.

    You're right, we are stitched up in this country for many things, although I'd take issue with the $10 per DVD quoted, as far as I know the discs are about £18 retail over the counter.

    If you go online you can get them much chepaer and the shipping is obviously less, but bargina retail stuff is getting less of a problem.

    Anyone got any differing experience?
