It's possible, however unlikely, that they could be planning something to coincide with Ep7's eventual release on blu-ray in the Spring. I'm not holding my breath, though.
I think what's more likely is that the TFA box art will mimic these. Why elese would they release single discs? No one really wants to own just one Star Wars film.
This time they will put LD scans on a Blu-Ray instead of DVD!
At this point, I would buy that just to show demand for the OOT. And hey, it might look DVD quality at that resolution!
Honestly though, I don't give a shit about what they happen to release at this point. I am content with the state of current fan preservations, namely Team -1's work.
The one thing giving me hope for a sooner-than-later OOT announcement, prior to yesterday, was the fact that they hadn't been released individually yet. Look at what happened with the GOUT. They needed a selling point aside from them being available individually, so they threw in the existing laserdisc transfers of the unaltereds as a "bonus." Sure, that sucked big time, but LFL got away with it because a lot of people were still watching dvds on their 4:3 CRT's and didn't know better.
I figured if they wanted to do the same thing with blu-Ray they'd have to do something similar, except this time they'd have to actually remaster the unaltereds.
I was wrong.
