No Poster / extras with season1 DVD in Sweden

posted by jools33 on - last edited - Viewed by 2K users

I bought the SamnMax DVD today (in Stockholm - Sweden) and was gutted to open it and find no bonus material as promised on the box - so no Steve Purcell goodies. I took it back to the shop (GAME) and got a refund - then tried in EB Games instead - and it was the same story there - none of their copies come with the bonus material - although it is promised on the DVD casing. As its the 1st day of the box versions release in Sweden - perhaps the publishers messed up in some way. What I'd like to know is if there is any intention of launching the game in Europe (or Sweden) with the Bonus material included - if so - how where do I get it from? - and wonder if any other Europeans have similar problems - if so feel free to comment here - so as we can communicate this to Telltale et all.

  • Thank you Emily. Your the greatest!:D

  • Hey there!

    I wonder if they are still sending those posters, because I just purchased the first season of Sam & Max and the poster was missing from the DVD-case.
    So, is it too late already to ask for one?

  • I don't know for sure, but if you write to them at the address I posted farther up in the thread, I think they'll still be able to send you one.

  • It's because Strong bad hates sweden :-P

  • Sorry if bumping this thread after such a long time isn't allowed but I bought Season One today from my local Gamestation (In the UK) and I don't have a poster. The box says 2007 so I'm going to assume it's an early run of the game and, as such, may fit the description for being a run without a poster.

    The problem is JoWooD are in a tiny bit of financial trouble, and I'm wondering if it's now going to be too late to get a poster?

    Thanks for any and all help :)

  • Does this offer expire? I have had Sam & Max season one since it was brand new in the stores (Norway) so i think its about 2007 or 2008, cant really remember. That version had no poster.

  • @Emily said: I'm trying to get more info about this. We weren't even aware there was a Swedish version of the game. (Or is it the English version that you purchased in Sweden?)

    To be clear - are the bonus materials (i.e. trailers, behind the scenes video, concept art, etc.) included on the DVD? The only physical thing that should be in there is a poster. I know the box makes it look like there are sheets of concept art included, but those are electronic on the disc. Please let us know if it's just the poster that's missing or if you don't have any extras on the DVD, either.

    There's a poster? I bought mine straight from TellTale's website and I never got that.

  • @riggs said: But even the packaging states there's a poster included! :confused:

    I may complain to JoWood and see what they've got to say (and possibly try and send it back to Play.com). It's not really a big deal, but still, gotta think about principle!

    Just out of interest, where could I purchase the 'proper' version? I've only just ordered some stuff from Telltale (signed print & teeshirt) and don't really want to pay the shipping charges again...are there any UK suppliers that stock the correct version of the game (ie, different packaging, poster included etc)?

    I ordered straight from TellTale and still didn't get a poster. However, my box didn't promise a poster and I didn't expect one either. No idea why the ones you've got promise something TellTale doesn't offer to come with their own box sets.

    Oh, wait, we're talking about Season 1? Nah, I got that in the store and no poster that I remember. Thought we were talking about Season 3. I never bought Season 1 online from TellTale, just at Best Buy retailer's shop. Looking to buy it again though as I've lost the game.

    That edition wasn't published/distributed by JoWooD, though. The JoWooD (i.e. EU, I believe) version was supposed to come with a poster, but according to some of the posts one of the runs didn't have it.
