    Personally, I'm not too worried about extra's, I want the film to be as good as it can with DD & DTS sound, but I think having extras makes the differance between a good DVD and a great one.
    Many people enjoy paging through the extras to see how a film was made, listen to the directors commentry etc etc....
    I thought the Toy Story 3-Disc set was too expensive, so I brought the 2-Disc set for £17.99 and I'm very happy with it.
    I guess the extra cost for the three disc set was due to the amount of work put into making disc-3.
    The reason that Play247 charge more for the R2 version is because they pay more for it - the great British Rip Off.

    Would like some opinions on this - is it really worth having a seperate box for Toy Story 2, I've just purchased this 2 disc 1 box set from Play247 for £17.99 R1 and the other box set is £37.99 for 3 discs - obviously with more extras - but is it worth £20 more?, I reckon this is blatant rip off, although if the Studios keep this up we should get more 'old' versions at a cheaper price.

    The R2 (2 discs set 1 box) version is of course alltogether a more shocking affair at £28.99 how can they justify a £11 mark up for R2 discs. My dig is at Play247 for selling the disc at the inflated price as well.

    I'm one of those freaky people that likes extras - I like to see how films are made etc!

    I ended up replacing my DVD player just so that I could play the third Toy Story disc. And was it worth it? No. (Although I'm please to have a quality player now).

    The third disc is EXTREMELY frustrating to play - it's menu mad! You get RSI from viewing 20 second introductions to sections which you then have to manually click through.

    My advice is to go with the (considerably) cheaper 2 disc set - the extras on those discs are sufficient.

    Shame on Disney!
