Collectors Edition: All episodes on one BlueRay disc?

Postby elstyr » Tue Nov 24, 2009 10:26 pm

Hi there,
I've got already 8 Seasons on DVD, also the christmas special, the IMGL special and the cartman special. Anyway, it is a pain to watch SP from the DVD's. I hate it to have to change the disc over and over again. So my thought is: Why does SPS do not release a Collectors-Edition-BlueRay disc with all Episodes until now on one single Blue-Ray disc? Or even just S01-S10? I've payed between 25-35 USD per season for the DVD's. I am willing to pay 350 or even 400 USD for ONE disc with all the episodes, that lets me watch my faforite series in a row.
What do you think?
Best regards,
elstyr

I could see them doing that if they had some new super special extras to add to the season set. Otherwise... well yes it'd be more convenient, but I don't think they'd do it. They are however converting the old footage to HD for the HD broadcasts, so you never know.

I'm no technology wiz, but all episodes on one disk doesn't seem possible. It takes three standard disks to fit one season. Maybe they could fit one season on one bluray? That would be good enough for me.

Even if it would be possible to do that, now it's senseless anyways, there are still at least 2 seasons to follow.

And if I look at how much capacity the blu ray would need:

15 seasons have all 3 dvds in it = 45 dvds
I think one dvd has around 7-8 GBs
7*45=315
8*45=360

one blu-ray has 25 GB capacity, so you'd need multiple layers, I think.

If you look at wikipedia here, right now, it's not really doable (max 200 GB, 250 GB in development), unless you'd cut down on quality or use both sides of one bluray.

Maybe after South Park will finish, the development would be so far and you could possibly do it but I wouldn't do it.

And today you can't also say for sure how much more seasons they will do

Not all the episodes would fit on one disc right now, because as of now, Blu-Ray only goes up to 50GB, dual-layer. (DVDs = 4.7GBs single-layer [DVD-5], 8.5GBs dual-layer [DVD-9] But you can certainly fit much much more on one than on a DVD, and it is possible to make it double sided and dual-layer, thus getting 100GBs a disc, just like you can get ~16GBs on a DVD by using both sides.

What I think, is they should release a Collector's Set, like you say, with each season on one disc. You can fit more on each disk, but to keep it consistent it should remain one disc a season.

(This would cut down on the number if disks to a fraction of it's current number.)
