Much much better deal at Best Buy. It is only $14.99, contains a third DVD (exclusive to BB), contains the hollwood movie money of $10.50 for the new movie, and (exclusive to BB) has $5 in concession cash.

I don't consider that a much better deal. It's a completely different deal. In the box set at FYE, you're getting the 2-disc Resident Evil Apocalypse. If you're going to the movie, the BB one might be better, but I went to see it in the store, and the two movies are crammed onto one disc, with all the special features on the other disc, in a regular amaray case. IMO, I'd rather spend $3 more and get the two movies, the way they were released, and no special features missing.

My bad, I thought it was the same release, I didn't notice it was the 2 discer. But one could easily argue that the special features are a wash, as you get stuff exclusive to both sets.

Does the TWEC release have the free movie $?

If not, then there is little reason not to get both if you are buying the TWEC set. As a fan of the movies, you're obviously planning to see the new one in the theater, so the BB set pays for itself with $15 in movie $ vouchers.

I have the original releases, and would have double dipped on this set for the new features even without it being essentially free.

Hey videophile, are you still IN? picking it up? this may have been a year's post... but worth waking you up about your inquiry

BTW, Xage, where did you find RE 1&2 for $15? I'll pick it up for that.
