And, according to Callum in Customer Services:

"I can confirm that the blu-ray is included so you should receive 2 discs. We're sorry for the miscommunication in our description."

I mean, if Customer Services is saying that, then it must be right, yes? :spoil:

Once somebody gets this one, please let us know if this is glossy finish with ultrahd logo on the spine, i´m saying this because the one just released in Spain is awfully matte and there is no logo on the spine, so a different steelbook from the one released in USA.

I´m seeing some steelbooks already listed on Ebay UK, shipping from there, i assume is the Zavvi one, which is exactly like the one we have in Spain.

Nothing to do with the Best Buy steelbook, unfortunately.

Received yesterday and I can confirm that it is indeed matte with no ultrahd logo on the spine ( the only difference on the spine to the previous Play.com release is the omission of the blu-ray logo).

Overall, I think this would normally be considered a fairly decent release, but unfortunately up against the original Play.com release means it's a bit disappointing overall (as we all suspected).

This and others similar to it aren't glossy. EU isn't getting glossy editions - USA is. So if anybody wanna have glossy one you'll have to buy US one.
