I just supported this petition in an effort to get major feature films released as 3D BluRay by Disney.

There is no doubt about the consumer benefit. Especially kids love to watch 3D, that’s what they are used to in the cinema. And as a publisher of 3D BluRays I am obviously biased. We achieve about 50% higher margins per disc than regular BluRays and 100% more than DVDs. Some of our titles sell 10,000 discs or more, others never recoup their manufacturing costs. Physical media is a risky business, that’s what we do. But for a large media corporation, there virtually is no commercial risk. The production costs (compared to a 2D BluRay) are almost zero, and there is a proven market of passionate 3D fans who will buy the 3D versions. Win-Win. So, I think this is a cause to support.
Also, If anyone knows DVD publishers who are willing to try releasing 3D BluRays in their markets, please introduce them to me.
