I found this article discussing about those Limited Editions that go out of stock/ print within days/ weeks of release.
Very interesting read. Please read.

Interesting if you're obsessive-compulsive, otherwise, well, not really.

I am that obsessive compulsive.  I will do everything in my power to keep from buying full-screen and double-sided discs, as they both grind my nerves.  I also hate cardboard snapper cases and the box sets with slimline DVDs.

That article was practically written for ornery nuts like me.

I take medication for my OCD. I've got it under control. Really. I just search the same used DVD shops every weekend because it's fun. Really.

You should try moderating this site. It's not healthy if you even have moderate compulsive tendencies - way too many things to get anal about!

Hey studios do whatever they can to make more money off the same movie.
