    You in the United States? If you would of preordered in June haha like I did from Walmart, you got a few exclusive bonus features, a bonus feature from the bluray, and the digital prequel comic about Supergirl, it's in video form and last almost 20 minutes. (This was a digital comic originally exclusive to Walmart for preordering man of steel movie theatre tickets)

    Target you get a digibook with concept art, different pictures, and an exclusive special feature that's 30 minutes long.

    That's all I know special feature and steelbook wise, but I imagine bestbuy will have their own steelbook. No matter if you buy bluray, bluray tin set, bluray with 3d bluray, they'll have all the special features, except those that are exclusive to walmart and target.

    The special features I have right now for preordering from Walmart are:
    Watch digital copy early, 30 minutes from now.
    Man of Steel An Inside Look 5 minutes
    The supergirl prequel motion comic 18 minutes
    The Sonic Landscape Of Man Of Steel 13 minutes
    The Iconic Characters Of Man Of Steel 19 minutes
    And the last one is locked until November 12th
    Strong Characters, Legendary Roles

    I know the last one is for sure on the bluray but not sure if any other ones like besides the comic are a Walmart exclusive or I just get to watch them early.

    I feel ya. I've never had this much trouble deciding which version of a blu ray to buy. It's quite ridiculous, actually. I've narrowed it to three...Walmart steelbook, target special, or the collectors tin.


    I'll end up buying the standard blu ray:doh:

    Wow, it wasn't until Star Trek Into Darkness that I realized how confusing it can be to get a film on blu-ray with all the special features spread out with retailers.

    So, is Walmart pretty much the best bet if you want more special features? Or are things so spread out evenly that it's a dice roll depending on what you want?

    I still haven't been able to decide myself which version to get, Target is sounding better and I won't step foot into a Wal-Mart anyways.

    Yeah, December 2nd. For the longest time I thought it was a placeholder date, that someone hadn't sent Amazon the memo that the actual release date was November 12th. When I realised the Dec 2nd date was real, I wasn't sure if I was more annoyed at having to wait, or just perplexed as to why there was such a huge time gap.

    If I had to step foot into a Walmart, I think I would pay double to any other place just not to.

    Can't the Maximum Mode just be a feature length documentary though? What is the point? Does even a making-off now needs to be interactive?

    And from what I gather this maximum mode isn't interactive at all. You basically just play the feature and windows pop up from time to time without any intervention from you.

    Hey guys and gals, doesn't look like bestbuy has any kind of exclusive for it.
    Walmarts ad shows they'll have the steelbook, some of us had thought it was a preorder exclusive, however it's $20 for the bluray in regular packaging or to get the steelbook its $25, but includes 3D bluray as well.

    And let's not forget targets digibook. If you're going to double or even triple dip like me, the Walmart steelbook and target digibook are a must.

    Hey I know it's not the movie, but did you folks see this? It comes out Tuesday as well, target exclusive. I only bought the soundtrack on limited edition vinyl, may have to get this as well.

    I pre-ordered from Wal-Mart back in July and mine is on it's way right now, should be here on Tuesday. I'm thinking of stopping by Target after work to pick up the lenticular digi-book edition too. I was thinking about the ones on Amazon shaped like the shield and with the small pvc figurines, but I don't know if those are worth it.
