I'll be the first to admit it doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense...

Cameron, I don't think the original poster is clueless on when the title is being released; I think, like many of us, he's perplexed as to why, as a lead-up to Episode III, it's being released a month after Episode III...

Maybe instead of blowing the entire SW wad in early November, they decided to leave something closer to the holidays.

i'll admit, that i thought it was strange for them to release this later...but it does give them a month long way to promote star wars dvd's.

i only linked to the other thread, because the same question was posed when it was announced.

Honestly, I would have rather the release dates for episode 3 and for clone wars vol 2 were swapped. It makes no sense to me to release the cartoon after.

I'll wait until they put the entire "Clone Wars" on a single disc. Hell, it's only two hours; spreading it out over two DVDs (at $20 a disc) is a big waste.

To nitpick, I've never seen the Volume 1 dvd at more than $14.99.

I'd be surprised if they put in on one disc. At best they'll bundle the two together. I doubt it sold well enough to do more than that.

And I would say that I paid 12,99$ (on top of that, canadian dollars) on release day for Vol 1...

Well, I understand that and it's obviously your choice. And in many ways I agree that $40 retail and 2 discs is pretty nuts for only 2 hours of animated material and a few extras... but I suspect you're in for a long wait if you're expecting them to double-dip on the Clone Wars cartoon.

(If they ever do decide to revisit this, I'd like to see them improve the sound. The 2.0 surround track is adequate, but I was surprised to see that they didn't give it a 5.1 track -- missed opportunity.)

I believe Vol. 2 will have a 5.1 track. Vol 1 doesn't though which sucks.

It's still an excellent 2.0 track (or is it 2.1?).

Yeah, it sounds pretty good. Still would have prefered 5.1 obviously.

I don't know about that. If it was originally mixed in 2.0, it doesn't really matter to me if they mix a fake 5.1 track along with it.
