Looks like IGN has a breakdown of all the versions out on Sept. 10.

The Target version has the ugliest artwork (who is their audience?) but their "exclusives" seem the most substantial.

thanks for this! i may have to buy the target version and slip in some better artwork for the cover insert.

I don't think this decision came from the folks actually working on the product. It likely came from a far higher pay-grade.
I know. They were referring the individual two-parter BluRays that had exclusive bonus content on them.
...which was only made possible by additional budgetary allowances that come with separate Blu-ray releases. That's been covered plenty of times. The standalone TNG Blu-ray docs weren't kept from the season sets, they were created for the standalone discs.

You could read TheDigitalBits.com Bill Hunt's review for now. It's pretty good:

I just read this and am now weighing the decision to cancel my order with Amazon. I pre-ordered the special edition with the phaser but as much as I do want that phaser, I am seriously pissed at not getting all the extras. For the price they are charging it's pretty friggin' ridiculous.

Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]

I heard that all the film's special features are been split into different DVDs of the film. Apparently screenrants reports that if you want to get all the special features you have to buy all the dvds which will cost you $85.

how cute (SCARSAM) for Paramount to rip off Trek fans.

Yeah, here's a link. http://io9.com/why-the-star-trek-int...rip-1222160195

It's complete BS. This nonsense has been going on for years in the gaming industry. Gamespot will get "x" exclusive content, while Best Buy gets "y" exclusive content.

Only way these corporations will learn is if people stop buying their products when they pull this stuff.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness out on Blu-ray/DVD September 10th [spoiler

The film's special features are been split into different copies of the film (the blue ray, the dvd and the digital collection).

Apparently screenrants and even trekweb reports that if you want to get all the special features you have to buy all 3 version of the films. which will cost you $85 or even more.

As I said earlier, Paramount seems to have no shame in ripping off trek fans.

No company has issues ripping off their customers. I'm in a fight right now with EA Sports over Madden NFL 25 and the lack of important information regarding the Xbox 360 version on either the box or any of their pre-release information.

Wouldn't surprise me if a 2-disc Ultimate Special Collector's Edition comes out some time later... they love doing that sort of thing.

Find another Paramount release that includes retailer exclusive features in a re-release package.

Not quite accurate. The TrekCore review (which I'm laboring over currently) will break down who has what, and what you actually "need" to buy to get everything.

If not, I'll find the special features that my version lacks.

But if they're going down this road and splitting the special feature among that many different releases, I can't believe there won't be another down the road.

Trekkies love to double-dip and Paramount knows it.
