Planet Earth (BBC Series) - All Formats

Not sure if this is a sale or a price reduction, but Amazon.com has the DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray versions of Planet Earth now for $54.95 (it used to be around $66, I think)

Planet Earth (DVD): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MR9D5E/

Planet Earth (HD-DVD): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MRAAJW/

Planet Earth (Blu-ray): http://www.amazon.com/Planet-Earth-C...dp/B000MRAAJM/

I just ordered it from Best Buy last night for $54.99. Just 2 days ago it was listed for $59.99 and backordered. I figured that would be a tough price to beat for Blu-Ray, and I had $50+ in gift cards, so even with tax and shipping I paid less than $10 out of pocket.

It does specifically state this this price is online only:

If you get it through Amazon's warehousedeals, you can pick up the HD-DVD version for $8.xx plus shipping. It's usually out of stock but I was able to snag one over the weekend. Typically, the set is only missing the plastic outerwrap.

Wish I never bought the DVD and had held out for the blu-ray. Oh well.

Lucky, I've been trying off and on for the past week and no sniff of one. I know it's a long shot but would have loved to pick one up for less than $9 even if it is HD-DVD (which I have).

I'm using firefox and their page update checker plugin. That way whenever the page changed from "This product is out of stock" to the ability to order, a little window popped up. This happened three times for me already. The first time I went to checkout but the site required me to link up my amazon account. The second time I was just too slow. Someone got it right before I could place my order. The third time, however, was the charm.

Thanks for introducing me to that site. $9 for Planet Earth is a bargain.

Is it true that this title is not working for some on the PS3? I ended up ordering it on Blu bc of the case and the fact that an HD set would probably arrive with some lose/scratched discs and the Blu coating is better.

I just want to make sure it will actually work on the PS3.

I've watched the entire series twice w/o an issue on my PS3 and didn't know that issues were being reported.

Just the HD-DVD version, but Amazon.com has dropped it to $44.49:

Planet Earth [HD DVD] - David Attenborough version

(Not sure how long this will last given Amazon's yo-yo pricing habits)

IMO, getting the Sigourney Weaver version of Planet Earth instead of the David Attenborough version is like getting the Gus Van Sant version of Psycho instead of the Hitchcock version.

It's worth the extra money to get the version with the great, towering pioneer of nature documentaries.

ALSO NOTE! The Blu-ray version does NOT contain the "Planet Earth Diaries" that are featured after each episode on the SD DVDs. You may not care, but you should know. This footage is usually 10 minutes long and shows how the crew shot various parts of the episode. They are quite fascinating and a GLARING omission on the Blu-ray set (they could have at least put them on there in SD!).

From my latest Buest Buy thread:



$$$$ Purchase Planet Earth online at Bestbuy.com / Planet Earth and get the Set for $49.99 // URL is unavailable at moment and would seem to apply to Blu-Ray or HD-DVD version but I won’t know for sure until URL is active

I think Amazon.UK still has it in Blu-Ray for around $34-ish, shipped.
