Now, I am going to buy the DVD set -- but how about if those of us who are
going to buy it *wait* a day or two, at least, before we take it home.
Studios always do a press release announcing how many copies sold the first
day or the week. There are records to be set, just like box office results. It
would make a statement to Lucasfilm if the Star Wars set didn't set any records
its first day of release. They would notice that people weren't buying it -- and
they would have tangible proof of how many people will buy the original
trilogy. Maybe it wouldn't make a difference, but it's worth a try, right?
