Default Disney Confirms 'Pirates' Packaging Gaffe

An unusual packaging blunder had early adopters scratching their heads on the eve of Disney's highly anticipated 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' Blu-ray release.

As long as they don't do a Jack Ryan style re-call, it should end up being no biggie.

Not much to talk about here; it is what it is. I guess it's good to see that the disc is encoded at 1080p (not that there was actually serious doubt).

However, thanks to HDD for its standard vigilance and keen eyes for advising us of this minor blunder.

Disney needs to hire better QC personnel.

The real problem of course is that the movie itself is a steaming pile.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor is improperly packaged at Best Buy.

A sticker on the front boasts of an "exclusive bonus disc including The Making of Battlstar Galactica: Razor".

Unfortunately the disc is absent, at least from the two copies I checked. However, one copy had two inserts for BSG figures and other crap and the other had nothing. You can check which copies have these inserts by shaking them. I couldn't find any copies that felt like they included the promised bonus disc. Checking that features included on the disc, nothing called The Making Of is included, so it isn't just extra content added to the single disc.

So yeah, pretty irritating.

It's not that serious of a mistake and regardless the title will sell by the boatload and add some serious numbers in our favor for Blu-Ray this holiday season.
