New Ultimate (Michael) Jordan 20th Anniversary DVD coming....

Seems Warner is re-releasing this one....form DavisDVD.com:
Marking 20 years since Michael Jordan's celebrated arrival into the NBA, Warner Home Video will release NBA Ultimate Jordan: 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition on October 12th. The previous two-disc edition, which hit stores again recently after a year-long moratorium, featured 5 fully-remastered Jordan programs (Come Fly with Me, Michael Jordan's Playground, Air Time, Above & Beyond, and His Airness) plus Jordan's 10 Greatest Moves, Dunks, Shots & Assists, Highlights from Michael's Greatest Eight Games, "It's Gotta Be the Shoes," Music Tribute by Jill Scott, Great Michael Memories, Slam-Dunk Contest Footage, Interactive Jordan Career Timeline and a boat-load of DVD-ROM materials. The new 20th anniversary edition will add an exclusive third disc featuring five of Jordan's all-time greatest games in their entirety. Retail will be $29.98.
Five of Jordan's best games in their entirety?

Remember, this is just Ultimate Jordan with a bonus disc of just the games (which I bet are probably already on the History of the Bulls disc).

Personally, I see no need to upgrade.

I hope the final game with the Bulls is on there as well. That one had me on the edge of my seat for the last half.

i'm sure a couple of the games will be ones on the history set but they'll probably have a north carolina game on there or something. whatever it takes to make it a little different so we have to go and buy this too. they ****, ****, **** you with the additional bonus material!

Any word on what the 5 games are? I certainly hope these are not the games in the Chicago Bulls DVD. Also, to fit 5 games in one disk? These most likely will be edited games and not entire games. : ( Still, as a Jordan fan, I most likely will get this as well!

Information on this one (or at least on what the five games are) is certainly lacking.

Here are the games on the Chicago Bulls set:

1991 NBA Finals, Game 5
1992 NBA Finals, Game 1
1993 NBA Finals, Game 6
1996 NBA Finals, Game 6
1997 NBA Finals, Game 5 (flu game)
1998 NBA Finals, Game 6 ("The Last Shot")

Assuming those won't be duplicated on the new Jordan set, I'd think (or at least hope) that some of these will make the cut:

1982 NCAA Championship game (not gonna happen, but how cool would that be?)
1986 Playoffs vs. Boston (63 points)
1988 All-Star Game
1989 Cleveland ("The Shot")
1992 Finals vs. Portland, Game 6
1993 Finals vs. Phoenix, Game 5 (55 points)
1995 New York Knicks (55-point MSG comeback)
1997 Finals vs. Utah, Game 6


Guess we'll find out in a few days. . .

1995 New York Knicks (55-point MSG comeback)
1997 Finals vs. Utah, Game 6


Guess we'll find out in a few days. . .
And here are the five complete games on the new set, via the HTF:

* 1986 NBA Playoffs: 1st Round, Game 2 vs. Boston Celtics Jordan scores 63 points
* 1990 Regular Season: Game vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Jordan scores a career-high 69 points
* 1993 NBA Finals: Game 4 vs. Phoenix Suns Jordan scores 55 points
* 1997 NBA Finals: Game 5 vs. Utah Jazz Jordan scores 38 points fighting the flu
* 1998 NBA Finals: Game 6 vs. Utah Jazz Jordan's final game in a Bulls' uniform

And of course, two of those games (1997 and '98 Finals) are duplicated from the Chicago Bulls set. Lame.

Still, though--I got two of the three "new" games right. Man, I was really hoping to see that 1995 Knicks comeback game in there, though.

Also, Best Buy is advertising a bonus disc of the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest if you get the set through them. $23.99.

Sweet, I'm going to be picking this us. Hopefully BB will have this bonus disk in store. It doesn't say anywhere that it's online only.

There's a little, oddly-worded blurb about the bonus disc in the weekly ad. It reads:

"BONUS DVD
Watch Michael Jordan fly over the competition in this MAJOR 1988 slam dunk contest. 833 minutes, including Jordan's top 5 games in their entirety."

Should be available both in stores and online. Now--how many copies they're gonna have, and how many of those copies will have the bonus disc--that's another matter entirely.

I bought the version that came out last year, I have all of the Bulls finals games on tape, and they show the 63 and 69 point games on ESPN Classic from time to time, so I'll pass on this. Like Virex said, I wish they had put "the shot" game 5 vs. the Cavs and the 55 point game against the Knicks on this set.

Well, I'm a sucker, so I broke down today and bought this, even though I have the first Ultimate Jordan set and the Bulls set already.

The reason I'm posting is that some were curious (and rightfully so) about how the five complete games were configured, so here it is:

Disc 1 - Side A:
-Come Fly with Me
-Michael Jordan's Playground
-Air Time

Disc 1 - Side B:
-Above & Beyond
-His Airness
-Special Features

Disc 2 - Side A:
-1986 NBA Playoffs 1st Round Game 2 vs. Boston Celtics:
Jordan Scores 63 Points (144 minutes)

Disc 2 - Side B:
-1990 Reg. Season Game vs. Cleveland Cavaliers:
Jordan scores a career high 69 points (132 minutes)

Disc 3 - Side A:
-1993 NBA Finals Game 4 vs. Phoenix Suns:
Jordan scores 55 points (119 minutes)
-1997 NBA Finals Game 5 vs. Utah Jazz:
Jordan scores 38 points fighting the flu (119 minutes)

Disc 3 - Side B:
-1998 NBA Finals Game 6 vs. Utah Jazz:
Jordan's final game in a Bulls' uniform (131 minutes)

Haven't watched any of this stuff yet, so I can't answer any questions about the picture quality or anything, but having four hours' worth of stuff on Side A of that third disc is obviously gonna be the concern. Not that you use things like this to demo your TV or anything, but still.

Wouldn't it have been great if they could have put the two old games on one side of one disc instead?

And, to comment on the "bonus" disc, it contains the whole Dunk Contest from 1988, with all of the replays, discussion, etc.

Runs about 50 minutes.

Very well-done. I wish all bonus discs were this good.
