It’s a slow news day today, given the Labor Day holiday here in the States. All the studios are closed and there’s no announcements being made today. Still, we do have a couple items for you...

A number of you have asked about Warner’s The Hobbit Trilogy 3D: Extended Edition in Blu-ray 3D. Amazon.com hasn’t started taking pre-orders on the set yet, but strangely you can already pre-order the German version here on Amazon.de. Supposedly Amazon has the exclusive on the 3D version, but we don’t know when they’re going to start promoting it.  [Read on here…]

The big news today is that Samsung has just announced the very first 4K UHD Blu-ray player at the IFA 2015 conference in Berlin: the UBD-K8500. It’s expected to be available in Europe early in 2016, but a U.S. version will be available as well. No pricing information has yet been given, but we think it’s reasonable to look for prices in the $500 - 1000 USD range to start.  [Read on here…]
