3D Blu-ray For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

While I know for some that 3D is falling by the wayside; I'm still a major fan of the format and always snatch up the newest 3D disc.  And remarkably I think people in my area like 3D too, been a few times where the 3D discs have sold out halfway through the day; and numerous regular Blu-Rays still sti on the shelf.

 

I was excited to see online that 'Underworld Blood Wars' was being offered in a 3D/4K set and it seemed to be a Best Buy exclusive.  So I put in an order for store pickup and went by this morning to pick it up.  Obviously, I didn't go home with said Blu-Ray; I figured something must've gone on at the higher level when I checked my receipt, the link opens straight to the 4K disc page and 3D is no longer mentioned.

 

So, I'm now seeing that 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter' has the same 3D/4K combo pack offering that 'Underworld' had.  

 

I'm just curious if 'Resident Evil' will actually be made available at Best Buy in 3D or (like Underworld) it's a mistake and it will not be offered?

Re: 3D Blu-ray For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Hello GoldenSimatar,

 

I never saw the first Resident Evil film, but I did see the second one and I'm not convinced that was the best place to check in to the series. I'm discouraged to read of the ambiguity you encountered with this titled and I regret any inconvenience to you.

 

I have contacted my corporate partners regarding your query. As soon as I have new information, I will reply again to your message. Your patience in the interim is most appreciated.

Hello GoldenSimatar,

 

I appreciate your patience while we looked into this for you.

 

With apologies, a Blu-ray 3D disk is not included with this item. Our website should be updated to reflect this change shortly.

 

Please know I'm grateful you brought this to our attention.

Thanks for letting me know.  Like 'Underworld' I'll be ordering the 3D version from the UK.

Re: 3D Blu-ray For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Hi GoldenSimatar,
I feel the same way, I don't smoke, don't drink, don't really do much except work and collect TV shows and Movies and I love my 3D movies.
If you haven't found it already there is a North American 3D version of Underworld Blood Wars that you can find on Ebay and Amazon but becarful as some sellers are selling pirated version, I had to buy from two sellers before I got a legit one and I complained to ebay and they pulled the other seller so hopefully that helps with the pirated ones. As for Resident Evil, I have been complaining to Best Buy to see what they will do about that because I preordered the 3D,4k,BD Steelbook on Feb 4th, got it in the mail the week it came out (I moved recently and the nearest Best Buy store is 208 miles) so I make most of my purchases online. So just like with Assassins Creed and Underworld I had to purchase another sku, one that was not a steelbook just to get the 3D disk BUT I did that with Resident Evil The Final Chapter, and guess what??? The regular plastic case with a different sku that said it includes the 3D BD, I even had a customer support rep help me find the right one, and it still came with NO 3D disk!!! They gave me a $20 credit for a $26.99 movie BUT I don't care because I still don't have the 3D version.

Join me in starting a group, maybe we can make a facebook page or something, as this has gone to far. I have gotten burned 7-8 times in the last year and a half with preorders NOT including what they promise and enough is enough. It was bad when I had to purchase 2 or 3 different versions of the same movie just to get all the content I want, Ideally I believe that a limited edition steelbook should include 1.3D BD, 2.4k or 8k BD, 3.BD, 4.DVD, and 5.Digital Copy of a movie, it is completely possible and has been done with many movies in the past where they include all 5 forms of media mentioned and they used to be cheaper, now it seems like we are paying more and more for a movie and getting less and less content, and don't even get me started on the "special Features" or "bonus content" that many boast about including, I have found more out takes and bonus features posted on youtube than what comes with 90% of the movies these days. Anyway I hope that helps and that you can get a 3D version of Underworld for yourself, please let me know if you find the 3D version of Resident Evil as the only one I have found appears to be a pirated one from Sir Lanka and I am not buying that.

Keep up the good fight, let's not let them kill off 3D Blu Ray as it is a wonderful home theater experience, especially if you have a large screen LG 3D TV like mine that is a true 240Hz, it makes a huge difference as I have a Toshiba that is the same size but it is 120Hz and the difference is as dramatic as going from 2D to 3D, so imagine going from 120Hz 2D to 240Hz 3D!!! Its awesome. Talk soon.

Re: 3D Blu-ray For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

I've actually purchased them from the UK; both the Underworld: Blood Wars & Resident Evil: The Final Chapter 3D Blu-rays are ABC coded.  A fun surprise was that the RE6 disc from HMV actually came with a bonus disc with another 30min+ of special features.

 

I invested long ago in a code free 3D blu-ray player; highly recommend it.  Downside is obviously waiting sometimes an extra month or two for a film's release and then another week or two for it to arrive.  But, the upside is films that might never get a blu-ray release in the states or not get a 3D release here are now open.  

 

As of late, I've judged the possibility of a 3D released based upon a film's success at the box office: if it's a hit, there's a good chance of a 3D release and if it doesn't do well, at least domestically no 3D.

Re: 3D Blu-ray For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Hello GoldenSimatar

 

Thanks for the info, i forgot to check the UK. As for players i have an older LG 3D, a newer Sony 4k 3D (got it about 10 months ago, and a Samsung 4k 3D that i think i will return. I know the LG is region free, and i am pretty sure that the Sony is to but i have had issue with 3 or so movies from other places, mostly Need For Speed 3D from Amazon Italiano which for some reason would not play on anything, i even tried Cyberpower Player on my main PC and one other title that i got from Ireland which had the same region number as disks i got from UK that played but the circle the number was in was a different color and that movie wouldn't play on anything either, otherwise i have purchased movies from UK, Germany, Japan, Russia, and several other market to keep my collection going.

 

Thanks again for the UK tip, i will check it out as i did not want to purchase the one from Sir Lanka as it appeared to be a fairly good fake but a fake non the less and i don't support piracy, i figure if i like a show or movie or series then i will buy the media and content to keep that series going and if its something i don't like then i just wont buy the next season, or the next sequel.

 

Have a great Friday
