TVShowsOnDVD.com just posted this.

No reason why.

Sucks, cause I think I was one of the few people willing to pay the 100bucks for the set.

Probably being delayed to better coincide with the Blu Ray release.

IMHO this was the worst season of THE SOPRANOS ever!

Had it been as good as say, the first two seasons, it would
have been worth the extra $$$ for High-Def.

Another thing that concerns me is that I have 5 large season
boxes of this series uniformly stored on my DVD rack. It would
look awfully odd to have a smaller HD-DVD box sitting next to
the other seasons.

I don't think it was the wisest idea for HBO to decide to release
THE SOPRANOS HD-DVD at this point, but perhaps I am
underestimating the fan base.

I own all of the Sopranos DVDs, and I planned to buy the new release on HD-DVD. Now I will just be waiting, and purchasing nothing.

Hopefully the HD-DVD will be released sooner than later.

I planned to buy it too, despite the discrepence in packaging.

As for the Season, I enjoyed it. I know a lot of people didn't - but it's a different show and frankly it was only half the story line (so they say).

I was looking forward to this - but I guess HBO didn't see the response they wanted.
