It's also worth noting that Sony will begin introducing eco-friendly packaging with this release. A quote from the press release...
The release also marks SPHE’s introduction of an eco-friendly ultralight DVD case on single-disc DVDs. The new packaging is designed to use approximately 20 percent less plastic than a standard-weight DVD case and reduce the DVD case carbon footprint by 20 percent. SPHE is launching the new packaging domestically with the release of Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and will continue to roll out the eco-friendly initiatives on a global level.
The Blu-ray Disc sleeve also sports the new logo/icon on the back cover indicating it also uses this new eco-friendly design.
