Reasons to Buy 3D Bluray Movies Now — Even If You Don’t Have a 3D TV

by Nindo Mom on March 24, 2011

I’ve always loved movies.

As a kid with a few bucks to spend here and there–when VHS tapes were still the only consumer movie format available but DVDs were about to hit the market–I held back from purchasing VHS movies because I knew how much better DVDs were going to be. And I didn’t want to have to re-buy my movie collection once the new format hit the streets. So, I waited…and I’ve always been glad I did.

Now, 3D TVs have hit the market. Of course, I wanted to run right out and get one–but I managed to hold myself back. :) Seriously, the reason I hit my pause button is that the first models of a new electronic device are always priced way higher than models with similar features a6 months to a year later. So why not wait and let the prices come down a bit? Plus, later models tend to be better quality, since the manufacturers will have time to get some of the bugs out. And, later models also tend to have more features.

So now that I’ve decided that my next TV will be a 3D TV, it’s just a question of when I’ll take the plunge and pick one out. My decision: I’ll buy a 3D TV to replace the tube TV I still have, whenever it finally dies. But in the meantime, all these great movies are coming out–so what’s a girl to do?

I’ve decided that, for any new movie releases that are available in a 3D format, I’ll buy them in 3D Blu-ray. (All of the recent Blu-ray films are actually being released on 3D Blu-ray–that’s the name of the technology.) This way, I won’t have wasted money buying my favorite movies on standard Blu-ray, only to re-purchase them later on in 3D Blu-ray.

I’m happy to report that all the movies I’ve see offered in 3D format COME WITH BLU-RAY AND STANDARD DVD VERSIONS! So for around $24-$39 (on, you’ll get all 3 formats of the movie in one package! So buying them this way, you’ll have a standard Blu-ray AND standard DVD version to watch now, and a 3D Blu-ray version to watch when you finally buy your 3D television! It’s a win-win-win situation.

It seems like all the “big release” movies are coming out in these 3D + Bluray + DVD packages, now. A few of the top examples that come to mind include:

So ultimately, by purchasing your favorite movie releases in 3D Blu-ray format NOW, you’ll save money in the long run–assuming you plan to jump on the 3D bandwagon at some point.

Plus, by the time you select and purchase your 3D television, you won’t have spend a lot of money on 3D movies to watch–since you’ll already have them.
