Blu-ray details in Sci-fi magazine

Latest issue of (as far as I can tell) Sci-Fi magazine has a small, but detailed blurb on the Ghostbusters Blu-ray sets. While more details will likely come out of Comic-Con, this is a nice start;

Available Oct. 21 on Blu-ray ($56.95 two-disc set).
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the rest of the Ghostbusters come to Blu-ray in this collection of the 1984 film and its 1989 sequel. The Blu-ray version includes a digital copy of both films, the picture-in-picture “Slimer Mode,” exclusive featurettes and a photo gallery. Also due Oct. 21 is a limited-edition DVD double-feature gift set ($39.95) that’s packaged with a collectible scrapbook, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figurine, trading cards and slime.

I think they got those numbers confused – the $39.95 is probably the single disc of Ghostbusters and the $59.95, as they mention at the top, is the gift set with all those goodies.

Whoops, I get it now – I missed “DVD”. Man, how many times can one person buy a DVD? For a Stay Puft doll, I’m about to find out. My word, look at all those goodies. The bad news, at least for those of you that disliked the green goo style cover (I actually liked it), is that the Blu-ray disc will use the same art – no word on a box or case for the gift set (though it would, out of necessity, totally need one with all that stuff.)
