Blu-Ray Dilemma

We’ve gotten a bunch of emails from people who pre-ordered the Twilight Blu-Ray DVD from Target and Best Buy and who have now gotten emails indicating that they won’t be receiving their Blu-Ray as intially anticipated. Before we get any more emails, we’ve sent an inquiry to our rep at Summit who is checking it out with the home entertainment division to find out exactly what is going on. As soon as we know, we’ll pass on the info.

UPDATE THIS JUST IN FROM SUMMIT: “Both ( emails sent to customers of Target and Best Buy stating the Blu-Ray won’t release until May) are errors. Best Buy and Target are sending communications to all of their customer service reps to let them know that 3/21 is still the street date. We expect that they will also e-mail customers who have pre-ordered the Blu-Ray so there is no confusion.”

  1. *gasp* I forgot to pre-order Twilight! PWNED. :/ Thanks for the info, though!

  2. Does anyone know if the Twilight BluRay Ultimate Collectors set will be released in March also, or is that really being released in May? Amazon.com shows May 5th for the Ultimate Collectors set. Thanks!

  3. Dammit! I canceled my pre-order because of that. I guess I’ll have to do it again.

  4. Just re-did the pre-order.

    I believe the date on Amazon is correct. It is supposed to be only Target and Best Buy that have the Blu-ray on March 21st.

  6. Just checked Barnes & Noble, they put the pre-order for the Blu-ray for 05/05/09 as well. So I’m assuming that’s the official date for all the other stores to release the Blu-ray.

    To Melisa. It was announced in the past that Summit was going to do a creative release of this movie. They feel that most of their customers will be Teen girls with 20$ DVD Players, though I exaggerate the price of the DVD player. The point is that they are limiting the release of BD to just Target and Best Buy so that they don’t have to overproduce BD. On 3/21 we get DVD around the country, BD at BB and Target on 3/21 and BD everywhere else 5/5.

    Special edition from Amazon is 5/5 as well.

    I would like to thank the person(s) who inquired about this and got a final answer. I am still awaiting and apology from BB for my near heart attack.

    If you could send another e-mail to them to fix their system because when I check my order status it still shows the wrong date.

    Here is what I see.

    Status: 1 item(s) preordered, release date is 05/05/09.

    My current battle though, is to see if I can get my price lowered since I now see their price has gone down.

  8. Just pre-ordered the BR from Best Buy and just realized that their version is different from Target. Looks like Target is advertising a “2 Disc DELUXE” version that’s only available from them. This includes exclusive iTunes downloads.

    Does Target have in-store pick-up as well? The only reason why I bought from Best Buy is to make sure I have it for my viewing party that night, but I really want the better version.
