Amazon.com now has this new video online  advertising the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Blu-ray DVD in a spot called  "Unlock the Secrets." Of note are new quick looks at cast members such as Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley, our King) in his harness to film for the Quidditch scenes, Matt Lewis (Neville) and Alfie Enoch (Dean), Emma Watson (Hermione), Jessie Cave (Lavender) and Dan Radcliffe (Harry) speaking to director Yates. Update: Screencaps starting with the new images can be found here. There is also written mention of the new footage from Deathly Hallows that will be contained on the DVD (no actual DH footage shown!), as well as the live community option and more.  The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD will be released on December 8th. Thanks to Portkey.it for the heads up!

It’s unfair that there’s more features on the blu ray version :(

OMG I love it! I can not wait for the DVD to come out. I heard that for the bonus packs, normal DVD and Blue-Ray, you get the deleted scenes built into the movie- and extended edition (YAY). I am sooo stoked!!

i think that despite all the hype i shall be sticking with the DVD format, Bluray is just a fad, i remember when mini-discs were supposed to be the next big thing, and where are they now?

Could someone please explain what will be on which DVD so that those of us who can’t afford to buy every disk set that comes out can pick which one has the best features on it.
