Default Uni: No HD DVD 'Bourne' Box Set

Universal has confirmed what many had come to suspect -- the 'Jason Bourne Collection' is now an DVD-only release, and there are no current plans for an HD DVD version.

I was sad to see that on the front page as I was waiting for the collection instead of buying individually.

However, having checked amazon.co.uk, it is still listed there complete with a packshot. Maybe Universal UK have decided to do it despite Universal in the US not? I hope so.

hmm, i'm confused. so the UK gets the boxed set but we don't? the UK set seems pretty pricey compared to Amazon US if there's no new content. is there anything else included with the UK set?

wow, no box set, pretty darn cheap if you ask me! We're paying twice as much just to get the same flick in hd yet they cant give us a cardboard box...
way to go universal!

I don't get the discontent, I mean, they could just issued a separate cardboard box, most HD owners already own one or two of those.

Default At least Amazon has our backs...

Thank You for following up on this, Jed.

It makes sense that they scrapped their original plans since it looks like they weren't going to offer anything new collection-wise, just the new title, which will be available in Dec.

The funny thing is that I already had both of the 1st two releases in-hand & traded them on here in order to get this collection based on the original article. That is what I get for trying to plan ahead, it shows you that you can't control anything sometimes, lesson learned. lol

Oh well, @ least I got my trade cred up there.
