Here's a post from a similar thread over at RS:
A major city decides its traffic problem is horrendous so said city decides to fix it. After years of planning, actual work commences. Now after years of work and numerous traffic delays and detours, the first major part of said problem fixer opens up. Mind you, this was supposed to be the end all be all solution to the problem. Guess what, traffic is no better and in some cases, worse than before. Cost for this solution: $15 billion. What was actually gotten: a big steaming pile of ****. But boy, it sure does look pretty.
DK, I remember when the original BHD was released, there was rumblings of a super deluxe version to be released later. I'm glad I held off on that one. The new is being released next week and its going to be worth it for the 90 minute History Channel documentary alone.
But I do agree with you and Matt on the issue, though. I've gotten pooched with buying America Pie, Sixth Sense, Silence of the Lambs, Almost Famous and many others to only have a better edition released. Granted most of those were bought in my rookie days of DVD and I now know to check out the web for any possible rumblings of a future release, but it still pisses me off.
