Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' A new original series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book series. Winter has come to HBO.
This past April, HBO debuted their new series Game of Thrones
, and it's become a huge, popular hit for the cable channel. Now Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for Game of Thrones - The Complete 1st Season
on both DVD
and high-def Blu-ray Disc
formats. These listings are prior to the official HBO and Warner Home Video announcement for the items, though, so instead of a street date Amazon only says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Pricing is available, however, currently showing $59.99 SRP for the standard DVD and $79.98 SRP for the Blu-ray (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entries, nor is there cover art yet. Stay tuned, however, and we'll update you further on this title, just as soon as we find out anything more! Our thanks to reader Alex Teitz for the heads-up about this.
