Bad news for E.T.

Some clarification has come in on the special features for the upcoming E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial DVDs finally coming this fall. And the news is a mixed blessing.

On the positive side, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has went the extra mile with the DVD-ROM content. Instead of the typical, script access and screensavers, Universal has teamed up with Total Axess to provide many unique online features. The bad news is that the promised deleted scenes and theatrical trailers will only be available through this online content, which means users without DVD-ROMs and broadband Internet connections, are left out. And even users with the technology will only be able to watch the footage via DVD-ROM.
