    All available to pre-order from the usual places.... but no box set, just individual titles :confused:

    So a not so nice £41.67 for all 3 :(

    Sendit has the cheapest @ £13.89 each.

    Not sure why we have no box set yet though. They did this with the Batman films. Release them individually in Dec 08 and the box set is March 09. However the Batman ones ended up in the Play 3 for 2 and with various discounts ended up just over £8 each.

    So there is a very good chance these will go the same way before end of April.

    I bought the HD DVDs as single titles. Funnily enough, it didn't make a blind bit of difference to my enjoyment of these cracking films. And I'm digging the price too.

    I don't think we'll get them in a 3-for-2 any time soon though, as Universal's stuff is rarely featured in such promotions.

    Think I am going to hang fire that little bit longer and see what happens here.

    Same here. As long as the UK versions get proper captions (and not the generic crap inflicted upon the UK HD DVD of Ultimatum) I'm in. If not, I'll gladly shell out at Movietyme for the US set.

    The only problem with PlayUSA is that you can get charged customs, I didn't want to risk having to pay an extra £10 or so for charges

    Even with the risk of an extra tenner, it's still as cheap or cheaper than pretty much anywhere else.

    People who missed out? Is it not available anymore from PlayUSA?

    Mine was actually posted from Germany, and had no problems with customs. Took about 10 days, and worked out at £39.99 so happy days.

    Yep. Six or seven Universal BDs out of, what, 350+ titles? Proves my point: they really are very tight-fisted when it comes to these promos.

    However, anything's better than nothing, and I picked up Fearless in that offer so thanks for the heads-up! :D

    I'm making a point of only buying must haves and not double dipping, so a single edition of The Bourne Ultimatun is just what I need.

    I'll pick the rest up in the sales.

    Yeah that's what I'm doing, got the first 2 Bourne films on DVD so I want Ultimatum on Blu and then I'll just get the other 2 later on. Same with Saw, I've got 1, 2 and 3 on DVD and 4 on Blu-Ray so number 5 will be got on Blu also.

    Certainly not buying the multipack at that price

    I have all three on HD-DVD, so will probably rip them onto my pch (although thinking about that I have a feeling 1 & 2 are only DD+?)

    I wasnt much of a fan of No 2 - the tunnel scene really messed my eyes up, but if Im right about the sound I will buy No 1 when it finally gets here

    Just pre-ordered the 3 from Play at £13.99. Definately three titles worthy of a double dip.

    I don't need the DTS-HD sound so I just converted the HD DVD's to Blu Ray and have them working on my Sony S350. All three are DD+. They all look amazing so they are worth having in HD.
