Although Stephen has got a point, I think that as Arrow is quite a small company, they really have to calculate whether releases will become cash cows or not.
Whenever there has been an acceptable DVD before it makes sense to concentrate on a Blu-ray release.
In my case, I'd nearly always go for the Blu-ray anyway. The players aren't that expensive anymore - for about 70 bucks you enjoy the new technology; any movie maniac should be able to afford that.
But if there hasn't been a proper DVD release (or no DVD edition at all) over the past few years, Arrow should release both formats at least for the next 3 years - that will be the time span until Blu-ray dominates, if you ask me.
