Pricing is a little uncertain at the moment with the press release stating an SRP of $44.99 for a 2-Disc Blu-ray with Digital Copy and $39.99 SRP for a 2-Disc DVD with Digital Copy, but then later listing a 1-Disc Blu-ray for $29.99 SRP and a 2-Disc DVD for $19.99 SRP (the latter prices seem more likely).
