Its nice to hace the option if completion is your thing. Chances are in about two generations time some kid will ask you what a VHS is... Heh, in two generations the VHS tape will be so brittle it will turn to flakes when you play it. Ever time a VHS tape is played, it rubs on the heads and the quality is reduced. DVDs on the other hand, dont touch anything while playing, so they dont have that problem. Of course in two generations theyll be asking what a DVD is also.
