    ^Well strictly speaking it would be region A not region 1 for a BR release. They should have never have brought in region coding for DVD or blu-ray.


    My copy has already been posted as the releasfor example in the UK you might have to wait months for a disc to come out that had already been released in the US. e date for the UK is the 2nd of September.

    Sorry yes its Region A, B. Numbers are for DVDs? I'd like the phaser but its no use to me if I can't watch the 3D bluray on my Region coded playstation.

    Doesn't the UK get it first, the US about 8 days later, we don't get it until 8 days after that?

    I see Amazon UK says they have a region free version but Amazon US says nothing either way so I'm not sure.

    ^Yep as stated in my post, the UK gets it on Monday the 2nd of September. I've got a nice 3D/2D steelbook coming. It's just a shame that Amazon.co.uk never did the Phaser set, like the Amazon US, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.

    Shame there isn't another ship tour thingie for the Vengeance, or an updated Enterprise one showing the atrium behind the bridge and shuttlebay 2.

    And even more of a shame that the extras seem pretty stingy all over this time around. A handful of featurettes doesn't really blow my skirt up. :(

    I don't think anyone really knows yet but, rumor is that they are the same just that Best Buy's will only be available through there CinemaNow service while the Target version is actually on a disc. I canceled my BB pre-order and will pick it up at Target because I'd rather get the exclusive extras on a disc.

    I agree! Very disappointed with the amount of extras, another reason why I'm getting the Target version, at least you get a few more extras that way. It's a shame because the 2009 movie had a great set of extras.

    No deleted scenes sucks. The commentary is only available on itunes (sure you can get it of the blu-ray for "free") but still it's lame that the extras this time are so chintzy. Maybe there will be a special edition some time next year?

    That seems to be the trend lately for many new releases. Put out a "bare bones" version, with a few EPK style special features, then a few months later have fans double-dip to get more content.

    To be honest, all of these "exclusives" are irritating as well. I preordered the Amazon 3D bluray combo with the phaser, both because I've wanted to pick up the phaser and the boxart for the 3d is the best IMO (I dislike and don't even have capability to play 3D). I'd be tempted to get the target exclusive, but the boxart is the worst of the options...

    Okay I am thoroughly confused. Here in the USA which is the best version to buy that has the most extra clips, such as the ones with chris pine and the prosthetic tail creeping him out. I don't care about any "toys" just the clips. There are so many versions. I see Target has one that has thirty minute extras.

    Please help a fellow trekkie out.

    Bill Hunt at TheDigitalBits.com has excoriated Paramount for this reprehensible Blu-ray release. He gave an 'F' grade to the extras.

    Here's his rant:

    Don't mince words, Bill. How do you really feel?

    Hunt's 100% right. It's a bush league move on the part of Paramount, especially for a major release.

    It's basically a ploy from Paramount to steal more money from customers. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    Of course you CHOOSE the option that you want to buy. No one is stealing "anything." These are more incentives on the retailers part anyway.

    Every release has different features. It's a punk move on their part.

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

    Yeah I was pissed that I bought G.I. Joe Retaliation (a movie I enjoyed, because it worked great on every level it intended to work on and cheered me up during a bad time. Just seeing a proper Cobra Commander was enough to make me smile) and I learned only later that Best Buy had more footage on their version and I'd already opened my Target version.I heard the extra footage had more of Jinx, a character I liked even before the film came out.

    The point: Before this stupid Into Darkness Blu-ray comes out I'll have to look at comparisons of all the different stores.. It's frustrating.

    The most outrageous thing is that the commentary is itunes bonus content and not on the blu ray itself.
