Game of Thrones Blu-ray and DVD price drops by 50%

Game of Thrones Blu-ray and DVD price drops by 50%

Posted Mar 9th 2012, 19:28

It was interesting to see the various reactions from my comic about pirating Game of Thrones a few weeks ago. My favorite was from Steve Dennis who created a remixed New Zealand version, which applies to anyone living outside the US who wants to try and legally download TV shows.

There were plenty of great counterarguments as well, and subsequent arguments to those counterarguments. Many of them based their retort on the fact that Game of Thrones would ship from Amazon on March 6th and I just needed to wait longer. Truth be told, the show started airing almost 40 weeks ago -- I just happened to publish my comic right around the corner from when it was being released on Blu-ray. 40 weeks is a long time to wait. The sentiment that we pirate because it's easier not because we're thieves still rings true; Game of Thrones just happened to be an untimely example.

48 hours after I published my comic, the price of the Game of Thrones Blu-ray and DVD on Amazon dropped by 50%, which subsequently caused all the other retailers to drop their prices as well.

Do I have any proof that my comic started the price war?
Am I taking credit for it anyway?
Does this link contain an Amazon affiliate code so I can make loads of money and buy a mega-yacht filled with stripper-flavored champagne?

Perfume-thong-bum beverages aside, I already ordered a copy and eagerly await its arrival.
