It's only $28 on Amazon.

Maybe they decided to lower the price. That article Lee posted said retailing for $50 which is ridonkulous. It could be just a fake "retail" price like everything else though. Doesn't matter...I'm glad to hear the price down to earth.

The MSRP is $49.99

Amazon is selling it for $28. Which BTW is $2.50 more than the BD only version:

Best Buy on the other hand . . . well just bend over and hand them your wallet

Well, that's still a problem then, since most folks still do their shopping in stores. They'll see that insane price and scoff it. 3-D will be blamed no doubt and it isn't helping.

3DTV is an early adopter series of products. EA's almost always put having the tech before the cost. The nonsense at Ebay with 3D BDs is proof of this.

James Cameron talks Avatar's theatrical, Blu-ray Special Editions

Quote:
This weekend Avatar comes back for more in theaters, packing an extra 8 and a half minutes and only available in 3D. According to director James Cameron, part of the reason is there are so many more 3D cinemas now than there were before, especially internationally. If you're still holding out for the (next) home release, expect even more footage with an extra 16 minutes added onto the original cut, which Cameron hopes will help hold fans over while they work on sequels that could take years to make. Oh, and the Blu-ray 3D release? The Hollywood Reporter says that's still on hold for 2011, while Cameron & Co. hold out for a larger installed base of 3D-ready displays.

I'm actually referring to the 2d buyers. They're being forced to buy both versions if they want a copy when it comes out and they'll be pissed if they have to pay almost double the usual rate because there's a 3-D version included. Know what I mean? It's potentially just another excuse for people to turn on 3-D.

Disney said a while ago that they were going to raise the price of their releases but in turn use "value added" features to justify the price increase. Adding a DVD and a Digital Copy (and in the case of a 3D BD release - add the 2D copy) is what they are doing.

Sony on the other hand is just releasing a 3D BD for it's 3D title(s)

So they not only pirated the DVD's but now they'll take the early adopters money and run. And that's after coming on here and touting the website to us. Sheeesh.

This should come as a surprise to no one. It was probably just a straightforward rip off, but if they thought they had a leg to stand on, they were crazy.

I saw that last night, and emailed Mr 3d, and he just said he couldn't keep up with the orders and needed to slow down to get more bd-r in's. Anywho he said all orders were going to be shipped today. If he doesn't, you guys can just dispute with paypal, but I received my discs fine.

I don't get this. For a tentpole 3D movie such as Avatar, why not release ASAP to encourage people to try out 3D in the home? Surely it has such pull that pretty much everyone that buys a 3DTV and bluray player will buy a copy, so there isn't any loss of sales by launching early, they just sell slowly but surely alongside 3DTV growth.

I just got an email with a tracking number, whatever that's worth. We'll see in a few days.

yea that's so dumb, if they release it, there will definitely be an incentive push for folks to hop on the 3d train. By not giving us content will slow down 3d tv sales.

Panasonic must be thinking differently - that they will sell more 3DTVs when they give away a free copy of Avatar wih each purchase.

Cameron's and Panasonic's strategies on Avatar's release would seem to be at odds. If Cameron is waiting for a larger installed base that would suggest he's not planning on having any exclusive bundles involving Avatar. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Good to hear that you received your discs!

That's also good to hear. But if it IS legit, then it's sad to see the store closed down...I was seriously thinking about buying some of those today when I discovered the store closed down. I'm getting the feeling I may never be able to get this content...

You got yours fine from a CL ad. Then you "emailed Mr. 3D" and he told you the inside deal. Yep, still fishy

I believe (??) he doesn't have any say in the matter on the video release. That is all Fox's decisions. Not like Speilberg. He may be the spokesman though.

Received the 2 disks today (Grand Canyon and Under the Sea), however there are severe ghosting issues with both, rendering them unwatchable. Don't know if the incompatibility is in the BD-R replay of the Sony S570 I have (the factory Cloudy w Meatballs and Monsters v Aliens, play perfectly). But until there's some update from Mr3D or Sony, I can't recommend the BD-R copies to anyone.

Mr3D = Printing money

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.

Received my copy of Under the Sea. Played it for a few minutes and it had artifacts on the screen. Ripped it and burned it to a BD-RE and it plays perfectly. There were also fingerprints on the disc so that could have been the issue but I've had really good luck with using BD-RE for playback.
