Difficult choice this and based on a hypothetical example.
£3.99 retail DVD delivered you can play this on any DVD player with the added bonus of DD 5.1/DTS, rip it to any format compatible with any portable device you own and even get some resale value if you get bored with the film.
Pay up to possibly £11.99 for the same film from vid store, have it tied to your PSN acc and be riddled with DRM, 2 channel audio and inferior video quality.
I know this isnt groundbreaking knowledge here but you have to be a complete idiot if you buy anything from the vid store. IMO its the biggest waste of time sony have ever implemented on the PS3 from a buy to own perspective. The rentals do have a little potential but again they have priced themselves out of the market when you can have a disc version in all its DTS and higher quality video glory.
If anyone tries to defend Sony and their pricing model for buy to own then they are either a/ have more money than sense or b/ a complete idiot.
