This is a very surprising thing. Albeit it's a little unexpected.

I bought the Targaryen Edition of Season 1 when it released earlier this year, well before they all got pulled cause of content that had to be edited out. And I had pre-ordered Season 2 and locked in the price many months ago. Now, I see that Season 2 is releasing with a Blu-Ray/DVD + Digital Combo, and Season 1 is re-releasing with the same type of format around the same time next year.

=/ Much as I love my Targaryen Edition, I am sorely tempted to sell it off and re-purchase the new formats and keep them consistent...thoughts?

Not really any thoughts from me except that I want it. I still haven't seen any of the series and have been waiting to get season one for under $30. I want it on Blu-Ray, but only have the ability to watch DVDs while at work. This would be great since I could watch an episode or two in my room and have the DVDs at work with me to continue them (although then again, I work 12-hour shifts, so I would probably just marathon the series in a day anyway).

I want this bad and will probably buy it without a sale. It just sucks though since i want to watch it and this means I will be waiting another couple months.

EYEL1NER, it should be noted that the collector's edition out now has the same blu-ray/dvd/digital combo format and it's going for $40 right now. I know that's a little more than you wanted to pay, but it's still a pretty good bargain considering the fact that it was going for $90+ when it was originally announced, plus you can watch it right away... I'm in kind of a dilemma myself, I don't know if I should get the collector's now or wait for this one, since chances are it will drop to about $30-35 before it's released (as long as it follows the typical pricing patterns of other just released HBO shows). Suggestions anyone?

Beware of the combo pack. I'm not trying to be rude, but HBO packages their combo packs TERRIBLY. I bought this set, and my wife bought Girls: Season 1. Both are packaged in a way that the blu-ray discs are cared for, but the DVDs are just thrown into a rough cardboard holder that makes it nearly impossible to get an entirely scratch/scuff-free disc. It's very disappointing, and I'm hoping if enough of us complain, maybe HBO will find a better way to pack their combos.

If you are going to sell your unedited (original broadcasted version), I suggest putting it up on eBay and point out that it is the original unedited release. The limited edition Best Buy versions are selling for $80+ used last time I checked, so you will still have money left over.

I myself am going to keep my Targaryen version to go with my Lannister one. :)

Can anyone who bought the Blu-Ray/DVD + Digital Combo tell me if the package is still digipack?

Why did amazon stop selling this version with digital copy?

They didn't. They stopped selling the launch copy of Season 1 on Blu-Ray because a former president's 'fake head' was used as a prop in one of the episodes. A commentary on the episode revealed it, so they had to recall all unsold copies. This one is still the Blu-Ray/DVD and Digital edition. And...the Digital copies are Amazon Instant Video or iTunes enabled.

It is. The voucher inside can be used to get the whole season on iTunes for your account there or you can use it here for Amazon Instant Video.

I'm beginning to wonder if I got an old copy. I just rec'd season 1, but mine has discs as opposed to a code. My season 2 has a code. The discs are not giving me an option to load into Itunes.

I agree with the OP - BEWARE. I'm so glad I read the negative posts (the problem is there are thousands of positive posts on the show itself not the blu ray set). If you read the negative posts on the blu rays (the one or two star reviews), you'll see that many many people who have purchased this item have defective discs (I have a defective disc as well). I bet there are thousands of defective discs but most people don't even watch their dvds. The set I bought from Amazon had a defective disc and many people claim they had defective discs on their blu ray sets.
Please - if you pay 50 bucks for this set, don't let it sit on your shelf- open it and check if it works. Chances are one or more discs might not.
I'm not talking about firmware updates and the slow load times but actual defective discs.

I received the GoT Complete First Season Blu-Ray / DVD / Digital Copy as a gift. I only have a DVD player, not Blu-Ray. I really want to see all the extras, but the box identifies the extras as 'exclusive Blu-Ray features.' Is the correct? The features aren't on DVD? If so I don't want to open it so I can return it. Thanks in advance for your advice!

I believe if you buy the DVD Collection, they have extras. But with the Blu/DVD/Digital, the Blu-Ray is the primary part of the set; the digital's a voucher and the DVDs are just the episodes themselves. The Blu's have the extras.

Thanks, Dean! I'm going to return the combo set and get the DVD-only set, to get the extras. Much appreciated!
