Slumdog Millionaire DVD Retail Copies Missing Special Features

The eagerly anticipated Slumdog Millionaire DVD arrives ready for rental and purchase this week. As Fox has made it clear, it will strip all DVD bonus features from the rental edition discs. Which only leaves the purchase disc for die hard fans who want the special features.

A few weeks ago we reported about how FOX was planning to remove the special features from the rental versions of its DVDs. Understandably, this upset a lot of people, including DVD retailers themselves. For consumers, the idea that there would be two separate versions of a DVD out there, on top of the double dips, special super editions, and all those other revenue-generating screw-you-out-of-your money gimmicks, was just a bit much for people to handle, and on the retailer side, it promised to create a lot more work for everyone involved.

It now appears as though consumers are getting screwed in a completely unforeseen way: People are purchasing DVDs of Slumdog Millionaire off places like Amazon and finding that the special features advertised on the back of the box are nowhere to be found.
