What's the use? 2 normal DVD's combined would be about 1/2 cm thick and about 30 gms in weight. Is that too heavy?

not only games but many movies too come on dvd9. strange thing that got godfather(all 3 parts, in excellent quality) on dual layer for Rs 100 only! :p (and that too a yr ago!)that's why i had thought too that dual layer wud be under Rs 100, but sadly they r not!

Ya, Rang De Basanti was on Dual Layer DVD. Ripped it, and fit it into a CD :). Also, I remember PC World used to give out dual layer DVDs with linux distros in them along with their magazine for just Rs. 60.

well, I went to Nehru Place, and though I know I didn't get the best deal possible, I think I got a pretty good price - Rs. 140 for a Verbatim DVD+R DL (which is supposed to be one of the best).
