    Did anyone else get the Blu Ray? Thought the thin cardboard sleeve/envelope kinda sucks. I'll have to put it into a proper Blu Ray case. Hope thats not the new trend in Blu Rays.

    Be sure to check that you actually received a Blu Ray disc. I received my "Blu Ray" via Amazon today. The hype sticker on the front indicated that it was the BR release, as did the Amazon stock sticker on back. However, the back of the actual packaging shows it to be DVD. I opened it and it is indeed a DVD, not BR. I'm returning to Amazon and will hopefully get BR replacement instead of another DVD.

    This also happened with the DVD copies we received at work; every single one came packaged with a Blu-Ray sticker affixed to the front. Whoops. Watch those stickers and format logos before you open the package, everyone!

    Yes, both, the DVD and the Blu-ray had the blu-ray sticker. Thankfully, the actual discs were correct.

    The blu-ray holder is smaller than the DVD version, just like standard blu-ray cases are, compared to DVD cases.

    Hi as soon as i had got mine and see how bad the cover packaging was i sent it right back to store i bought it from right away as i was not paying £20 uk for the disc to come in some tiny thin flimsy cardboard that could fall apart and also scratches disc more times you put it in and out no protection so sent back for refund and will wait till its only few pounds in next year as price will drop.I would not have minded if it came that way but also they added a professional actual blu ray artwork so that you could put it into a blu ray box and add the cover for those of us who wished to have it in proper package so they would give us it way it was sold plus also just threw in a extra case cover for us then we could just add it to a box ourselfs and it would still be all offical so you get like 2 covers when buying one in cardboard for them who wanted it or also one for us who actually like to keep discs in boxes and save them from getting damaged by having it in a hard case with the extra offical art work sleeve that would come with box and we just add cover to our own boxes and we are sorted.

    Yeah I noticed on both the Bluray and CD copy that they scratch really easily from putting in the sleeve, which is a pain in the ****ing ass, terrible design flaw they carry over on every one of Roger’s releases.

    I've now started keeping all my discs in a nice 325 disc capacity Case Logic case, so the card cover is a non-issue for me.

    That said, it is sad that Roger doesn't put in the effort David does in the physical releases.
