Part of a Universal press release for Jurassic Park III, as posted on The Digital Bits:

quote:
"Consumers purchasing Jurassic Park III who already own Jurassic Park and The Lost World DVDs may receive a collectible Jurassic Park DVD slipcase and Bonus Disc allowing them to complete their own "Jurassic Park Trilogy Collection" via mail for only $6.95."[/quote]

We likes that.

P.S. Sorry about the misspelling of Jurassic Park in the title.

Considering people are actually paying for the bonus disc will hopefully make Universal move a little faster with it. I think that is great that Universal is making it available at all.

I was hoping there would be a slipcase offered for those who had JP I & II already. The special DVD being added to the $6.95 price is stupendous.

Universal really deserves big kudos for this offering.

Why not just package III with the Extras' disc and bump the price $5.

A toast...(raises glass of Pepsi)

...to Universal DVD - for choosing NOT to screw the collectors this time around. I'd purchase the bonus disc just to endorse business practices such as these!

To whomever it was over at Universal Home Video who came up with this idea, thanks.

Any idea if the packaging for JP and LW will de different in the set? I'd get the set if they made a DTS version, but I have my doubts.

I've been very critical of Universal for the last 6 months, but I have to say that this is a very nice gesture on their part.

Let's hope this is the start of a more consumer friendly Universal Studios from this point onward.

Regards,
Dan

It sounds to me that anyone can get the bonus disc for just $6.95 whether or not you purchased JP1/2 previously. Kudos to Universal! They are making up for the JP DTS fiasco.

I'm happy! When I get Jurassic Park III, I can send away for Dragonheart!!!

I'm sorry. I just didn't want to pay $35 for Dragonheart.

I will congratulate Universal when I have the slipcase and Extra disc in my hands.

I'm STILL waiting for my 'free' Casino DVD that I sent in for when I bought Pitch Black and U-571. They cashed my $2.00 check for shipping. That was what, oh a year or so ago?? Posted Image Posted Image

Now whenever I see these mail in offers, I usually just toss them.

I hope they don't make us send something to prove we have the other 2 movies. I really don't want to go cutting up my covers.

Here's a suggestion actually-why not just ship JP3 with the case and extra disc to the stores-that way we can all get the disc and the box without having to mail away for them. I still like that they're making them available, but after hearing about problems with other mail in offers on DVDs I'm starting to have my doubts.

As it was said before, I hope they don't ask for us to cut up our DVD covers for the mail away offer.
