Default Proud New Owner of 3-Disc Blu-ray

Well,

My wife is a manager with Blockbuster. We pre-ordered Star Trek a few weeks back. Long story short, the Blu-rays arrived today. The store manager was kind enough to respect my obsession... I'm picking it up after work.

I know at least one person out there reading this is very jealous.

The wait is finally over!

Shame shame shame on you!!!! Seriously, she should be careful distributing early. I worked for BB a long time ago and they frowned on the practice big time. Even with us little peons in the stores.

Anyways, I selected free-shipping when I bought it at amazon because I thought it was a little pricey and waiting a week or two was no big deal. But they nicely lowered the price so I changed it back to regular shipping today and it was still less than I was originally going to pay. Unfortunately I will be out of town when it arrives but I will be watching it the night I get back.

Hate to say it but its already a torrent and has 1000's of leechers/seeders. Just as bad as MW2 XBOX is.

I have one question:

Why is the digital copy not HD?

I have a 1080p Dell monitor, two crossfire ATI Radeon HD video cards... and yet the digital copy displays the quality of digital video disc... cruel.

Standard industry practice I'm sure to keep piracy down for HD material.

I pre ordered mine at Amazon.com and got the BluRay for 24 dollars and change, no shipping.

Pointless - there have been bluray rips available for over a month now, it's only the honest sticking to the digital copies.

eta: also, to my understanding the digital copy is on a DVD (the 3rd disc), even in the bluray set and is only about 2 Gb (I can't check, being in Aus) so it'd be closer to DVD quality rather than true HD.

Make that 2 jealous people. I'm surprised they let it go early - I remember getting boxes in at the bookstore threatening death & dismemberment if Anne Rice's or JK Rowling's books were sold even a minute early.
