When they'll start making 1000$ per month and a cinema ticket shall be costing 25$, a new movie on DVD 120$, a new PC game 140$ and a new console game 250$, then we'll talk about rising prices. Amazon Europe just cut their expenses by 85% to 90% simply by moving their warehouses and shipping centers from Germany to Poland. A German labourer works for 2500€ per month for 8 hours a day total and at least two free days a week. Fucking Polish slave can work for 12 hours a day, seven days a week for 380€ per month. And he'll still be happy he even have a job in a 27% unemployment.
The sacred ritual of having a real, physically existing disc to put into a player. It's the other way around here - I'm not even sure if they're any DVD rentals remaining in my hometown. Thre was one in the cinema building, but I've heard the new owner has butchered it as well. No wonder why when everybody either moved to VOD or The Pirate Bay.
Video On Demand I believe. When you can pick a movie directly on TV, without going to a DVD/BR place. You don't have that at home? When we "rented" that new Robocop last Friday, we even got the original one for free! I mean, we already have everything in a fee, you pay 50-70 bits and watch whatever you want for a month.
