Considering what a pioneer in the digital field George Lucas has been, the news that Revenge of the Sith, coming out on November 1st this year… will NOT be released on VHS. That’s right kiddies, it’ll be a DVD only party.
The good folks over at Counting Down give us this:
20th Century Fox and LucasFilm will release Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, expected to be one of the season’s top sellers, on DVD only. Star Wars will be the first major new release to skip VHS, some say a move that is unsurprising because of its heavy DVD audience.
So for those of you out there still stuck in 1999, it may be time to head over to your local electronics stores and grab a DVD player. The good news is you can practically get them out of a bubble gum machine now for a quarter.
