I’ve had a set of Harry Potter 1-6 Blu-Rays, and have been looking for how to get Volume 7 (Deathly Hallows Part I and II). My wish has been to get them on 3D Blu-Ray so I can enjoy them once I get my 3D Playstation Display, but all I can find on Amazon is the 2D version.
In a bit of good luck, I just found out that Sony is planning to bundle the 3D versions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I and Part II with Sony’s BDP-S780 Blu-ray Disc player with 3D or BDV-E580 Blu-ray 3D home theater system.
Okay, that’s not the good news (since we have Playstations already, we don’t need a new Blu-Ray disc player). The good news is that the same Harry Potter 3D titles will be bundled with two pairs of Sony active 3D glasses, TDG-BR250/DBL, as a “3D starter kit.”
Normally I’m not a fan of “exclusive” bundles, but in this case, since the glasses will be compatible with the Playstation 3D display, I can kill four birds with one stone–get two additional glasses and both Blu-Rays for presumably cheaper than I can get them individually. They haven’t published the retail price yet, but if it’s under $178.40, this will be a bona-fide deal, as this is the price for the 3D Blu-Rays (see below) and two pairs of glasses. I’ll update this post once pricing is set and the link is on Amazon or Best Buy.
If you prefer to get the stand-alone discs for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, they’re available at Best Buy for only $29.99 each. Here’s are the links to buy Part I and II:
If the links don’t work for some reason, just go to Best Buy, type “Harry Potter 3D” into the search box and you should be able to find Part 2 as well.
Here’s another twist–Warner Bros. will be removing Harry Potter Blu-Rays and DVDs from sale at the end of the year. Presumably, they’re learning from Disney, who found that they can build huge amounts of demand by taking away supply and putting it in “The Vault” for a while. In other words, stock up on Harry Potter Blu-Rays while you can (and maybe buy an extra one or two to give away or resell–if things turn out the Disney way, these discs may be fetching a premium on eBay in a few months).
