Though what I think is more annoying than a lack of bonus features is where they are released as exclusives availble from only a certain retailer. I view that as nothing more than a shameless attempt to rip fans off in the hopes that they'll double or even triple dip.
The retailers actually pay for those exclusive releases (video games have been doing it for near a decade now). They see it as a way to drive traffic to their stores. Based on the fact that Star Trek Into Darkness sold pretty well, I imagine we'll see more similar releases in the future.
