The digital release for Star Wars isn’t the only Star Wars related thing we can expect this month, there’s also news about the unveiling of Star Wars BattleFront during an upcoming Star Wars Celebration event. The game has been quiet since its announcement at E3, but it is slated for release later this year in Fall, so expect to see some big stuff in the coming weeks.

    After dropping $200+ on both VHS and DVD copies, I might have taken the plunge if this set was maybe $60 or so. $90 is just a bit to steep to buy these movies AGAIN. Hopefully there will be a deal on May 4th.

    I hear you man, same thing with me I recently bought the collection for 70$, really no reason to pick it up digital unless it was a little cheaper, 90$ is a little too much.
