It looks like Summit Ent. will be taking a different approach this year with the New Moon DVD and Blu Ray release. If you remember last year when Twilight was released on DVD, it was a bit overwhelming, with so many different versions and editions. Each version had specific features and you could only buy specific versions at specific stores- very confusing.
This year Summit will just be releasing 2 versions of the film, one two disc special edition DVD, and the special editions Blu-ray. There will be a one disc version that will go to rental outlets like Netflix and Blockbuster.
This is in an effort to make the DVD/Blu-ray available to more consumers, since you can go into any store and buy the same version, and there will be less confusion as to which version to buy.
Also there will be less arguing between friends as to whose version is better, we will all get the same great bonus features.
