To get HD images you need everything working together, I know a few people who just got the TV or the DVDs and not the package and dont realise they are missing out on what they paid for.

You need the:
HD TV
Cables (these are what everyone forgets and can cost a bit)
Player
Right format DVD
Sound system (not needed but if your going for this type of system its a waste not to get this)
Leather couch
Beer
Nachos

Actually having great cables, a decent DVD player and a great TV and you really do not need Blu Ray. He difference between DVd and BR is not as great as VHS and DVD.

BluRay seems to be more about actual reediting and finishing the product rather than just better resolution.

On another note, what's the canon policy regarding these BluRay changes?
Zagreus sits inside your head,
Zagreus lives among the dead,
Zagreus sees you in your bed,
And eats you when you're sleeping.

Offical Bluray would mean canon I assume.
