  • And if you pre-ordered you don't get the bonus features. Thanks, Microsoft!
  • I haven't got anything yet!
  • The Star Wars universe has become a bore. Time to expand the offerings of the Riddick and Guardians universes.
  • I am for both of those excellent suggestions. Well said.
  • I beg to differ, Rogue One is the most exciting movie from that universe since at least 1983. VII was great in many ways, but too predictable/familiar..
  • Do people really buy those from Store..?lol
  • yes
  • Yup. I do.
  • Why?
  • Me too
  • i do. (esp if you are living in Japan...)
  • do you go to a phisical store and buy a dvd still?
  • Yeah, for about a quarter of the price and you get a myriad of special features with it, sometimes even a digital copy to use too.
  • If I change my region to US it is available, but I need to set up a new payment method. If I do this, will it work if I buy it and change back to UK region? Its a two week wait in the UK!
  • There's one problem with buying films on the MS store. You only get one language. I can't switch to English if I want.
  • Yep! I stopped buying movies from the Windows Store because of that. Microsoft is busy yelling"we want to empower everyone blabla" but can't deliver the simplest things in this regard. I mean at least 2 languages should be standard in the 21st century.
  • Same from Google. Every language is a different movie (and region locked).
  • but why? When I buy a game I have to change the region on my PC/Xbox for another language but at least it works.
  • What's the file format once Downloaded?
  • I see a lot of repeat watching of the Vader ending scene in my future.
  • This
  • That was the Vader we should have gotten at the end of Revenge of the Sith. Damn you Hayden Christensen.
  • give  you cash back if you purchase this movie. not a bad thing to join if you dont play xbox. they have rewards for windows store sometimes and movies :D
