Hey Leaker. I think you might still be able to see the Deathly Hallows sneak peak with your disc. Have you ever used Interactual dvd player program before? I think if you put your dvd into your computer and use that program(which I think is free to download) it might have a link in the menus or somewhere on the disk to the Deathly Hallows sneak peak which might actually be online on a WB site. At least that’s how I think I remember seeing the one for HBP on the OOTP dvd. Or they might be doing it with a completely different way for this release, who knows.

Third part of ’What’s on your mind’ is up and here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0S_KhNPfcOg . Funny how after I uploaded these stuff, several others videos has appeared with the same video.

PS. I checked it with Interactual Player and unfortunately there isn’t, it did have with OOTP, but not with HBP.

I got the Blu-Ray version and there is no DH Feature on the disk. The Feature is exclusive to a BD-Live which goes live on December 8 (from what I remember off the top of my head what it said on the back cover)

And also in the Philippines, i wondering why there’s no press release here but thanks to SnitchSeeker for reporting weeks ago that the HP6 DVD will be available here in the Philippines, same with India, South Africa and Israel, starting November 16, 2009. And here i am i already had a copy of the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2-Disc Special Feature, Unfortunately there’s still NO Ultimate editions of SS & CoS.
