DB, unfortunately it seems that there's nothing new. The only reviewer (at the moment) of this edition on the Amazon.com says: "As far as the special features go, they are just repeats from the DVD release and admittedly not very exciting".

+ DVD + Digital Copy..what's the point?  :-X

Kitty Nasty ¡...But...who could put the blame on you? :d)
Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Universal's 100th Anniversary:
"
Winner of three Academy Awards®, including Best Director, the movie that became a cultural phenomenon is now available in a remarkable 2-Disc Collector's Edition. Relive the sweeping epic that explores the lives of two young men (Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal), a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. With all-new bonus features, never-before-seen footage and highly collectible postcards, this definitive set magnifies the emotion, drama and power of one of cinema's most groundbreaking films.

So basically it is the same as the Bluray.  ::)

As for deleted scenes don't hold your breath, it's never been Ang Lee's way of doing.

There's absolutely nothing new content wise: old releases packed together. A sticker on the cover says: "Digitally remastered for HDTV's"; %&) Ennis would say: "S*it!"

The BD-Live material is even more useless than it used to be.  :P

The only 'new' thing is the slip cover (though high-class glossy print) with an 'inner' fold:


The Blu-Ray is all region, so it plays worldwide. If you don't have a Blu-ray yet, this is the one to get (with American Spanish & Canadian French versions).

How disappointing. What a shame! Well, the packaging looks nice and all-region is good.

On the one hand I can sympathise with Ang Lee. Many artists do not want the off cuts of their art to see the light of day. But on the other hand, as a BBM admirer, it would be very special to receive deleted scenes. DVD and Blu Rays are the perfect mediums for such bonus material. Especially since we have already been teased by the appearance of deleted scenes in the trailer and promo photos.

I know the community is more than capable of contextualising the actual film with material meant to be left on the cutting room floor. What is the worst thing that could happen if they commercially released the deleted scenes? No one would have such a strong reaction as to say, that hippy scene is so bad I now think Ang Lee is a bad director and it has ruined the whole movie! No one would be that crazy.

How precious it would be to watch beautiful Ennis calming a poor sick calf, even for the briefest of seconds. Or how sweet it would be to hear Jack call Ennis a square! ;D It is so little yet would mean so much. I hope they have a change of heart one day, and we can all order a Blu Ray (or what replaces Blu Ray in the future!) and share some extra time with our most beloved Jack and Ennis.
Time to hit the hay, cowboy.
He could smell Jack, the intensely familiar odor of cigarettes, musky sweat, and a faint sweetness like grass, and with it the rushing cold of the mountain.

I'll get this joy off of my chest at last - And I will love you 'til the noise has long since passed
All the way to the thing we've been playing at, darlin' - I can see that you're wearing your staying hat, darlin'
For the time being all is well - Won't you love me a spell?
-Joanna Newsom
