The current DVD is just NFL Films recap of the season. The set coming out in June includes those 4 games in their entirety.

any word on price yet?

No..

The current blu ray has the 4th quarter of their week 14 game against the Cowboys. (the dvd doesn't) I bought that & I'm sure as hell buying this.

I'm anxious to see the technical specs for this. With a Blu-Ray release, these games better be in HD widescreen format. (Even the standard DVD release should be in widescreen at least.) I looked at comments from last year's release (which was only standard DVD and not Blu-Ray) on Amazon and the games were in 1:33 format and more than a few Giants fans were understandably upset about that. In 2009 this would be totally unacceptable and hopefully won't happen. So many of us have widescreen TVs now and we need to see these games in full HDTV glory!!

The Super Bowl XLIII blu ray that was already released looks pretty effing sweet. Clearly superior to the standard dvd version.

I got mine on amazon for $15 less: http://www.amazon.com/NFL-Pittsburgh-Steelers-XLIII-Blu-ray/dp/B001UNSZWG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1244086394&sr=1-1

I watched the week 15 game against the Ravens already. The picture quality is incredible. My only gripe (& it's kind of nitpicky) is the fact that they don't showcase the starting lineups like they do in normal broadcasts. You know who's who as it goes along but I plan on revisiting this thing when I'm a dirty old man. The starting lineups are key.

Another small gripe I have is the fact that only the Super bowl includes both the tv broadcast & the radio broadcast with Tunch & Hillgrove. Every game should have that feature. But it's kinda cool that we get to listen to Madden call his final game during one of our Super bowl victories.
