Default Best Buy I Am Legend 3 disc Blu edition

Here is the link that got me excited:

http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...58&catid=20504

I think it is a crock. I went down to BB when they opened, and they only had the 1 Blu Ray version. They had 3 Regular DVD versions, and one of the versions came with 3 discs (1x Theatrical version, 1x Alternate version, and 1x Digital Copy), but the 3 Disc Blu does not seem to exist. Did anyone else have a different result at their Best Buy?

Lol this is pretty funny because this is exactly what hd dvd supporters have claimed for a while. Consumers perceive extra value and actually seak out multiple disk versions.

Why would you want blu-ray with 3 disks? Both editions and special features should easily fit on 1 blu-ray 50 gig disk.

The Futureshop steel book is much better I think, it has no extra content, but the steel blu-ray case is pretty awesome.

Both editions AND the extras DID fit on 1 50 GB disc, but it did not come with the extra digital copy. BTW, I supported both formats and I ALWAYS want as many extras as possible, even if I don't watch them all.

Yea, the casing for the disk is quite neat, all steel blu-ray case. The cover on the back and front are also different from the standard blu. There is a warning to citizens of new york city on the back of it, kinda neat.

It's exactly the same as the standard version BD. It's just in a steel case with different cover art, I saw it this morning when I was at futureshop and thought it was only so so, not all that impressive. If I wasn't getting the movie cheaper elsewhere I would take the Steelbook over the regular case since they are the same price at FutureShop. But I wouldn't pay a bunch more for that's for sure.
