I'm not sure i would trust that, couple of odd things in there.
a member on another forum claims to have the press release.......
........... as always with these catalog releases price is out of wack with reality and the current day climate so I once again will not be purchasing on street and will wait for a substantial price drop
lastly the inclusion of the dvd copy on this release is both baffling and a waste
I beg to differ. For me, at least, the addition of the DVD means that I have a better chance of my wife letting me purchase the BD. With it being a film that my son would enjoy, she's more likely to say okay to putting down money for a BD that also includes a DVD that my son can watch on the other televisions instead of just the HD set in the basement. I'm stuck with the DVD release of WALL-E for just that reason. I rented the BD from Netflix and wanted to cry because it was so lovely.
I also think it's a good way of getting folks who plan on buying a BD player, but don't have one yet, to buy the BD anyway. Future proofing, if you will.
