Alien SE & Aliens SE both for £16.98

There's a two-for-one on the new 2-disk special edition Alien series on play.com. Click here.

I didn't go for the Quadrilogy boxset as I didn't want the third and fourth iterations so this is perfect for me.

The SE's are releasing on 15th March, however these promotional copies won't be dispatched until 12th April. I for one don't mind the wait at this price. I imagine these 'promotional versions' are cheap copies that they've been able to source for a limited time. They've ran similar promotions with the Friends & Simpsons boxsets. Be quick :smashin:

Thanks. Gone for this have to agree that the 3rd and 4th installments aren't really worth buying.

The new releases have both versions of the films on 1 disc along with a second disc full of extras.

Well the discs being released are identical to the discs in the Alien Quadrilogy so go by that comparison.

Guys, I already have Aliens Special Edition runtime is 154 mins, and Standard Alien Resurrection (got it cheap). I don't do extras (I know, I know) so is it worth me getting this version of Aliens?

If not I'll get parts 1 and 3 and will then have the set.

Cheers in advance, Kam.

i got the quadrilogy set from cdwow using a £8.99 voucher - so i got it for £40

but anyway, the new versions of alien 3 and 4 are quite different to the theatrical versions and alien 3 especially is excellent

What exactly are these promotional versions, they must be different in some way if the normal version is basically the price of 2 of these promotional versions... Probably gonna get it from hmv, seen the slipcover, I am a sucker for nice slipcovers :(

Well, I'm not bothered about part 4, the only way you can make that better is to delete all versions on all media ever and forget it ever got made :smoke:

So I think to get parts 1 and 3 for 18.98 is probably a good deal.

Might hunt for a good price on a quad set first though.

Cheers,

I think these are exactly the same, play.com have probably been able to source a limited supply at a cheaper price. They've done similar things with boxsets of Friends and Simpsons.

Remember these promo copies are not available until a month after the standard release.

You sure, I know they are all half price when you put them in your basket, but don't they check that you've bought multiples of 2??? :confused:
