MY TWO CENTS - 8/28/12
First, we've got a major Bond 50 Blu-ray update for you this morning. We've confirmed with our sources at 20th Century Fox that n[highlight=#ffff80]early all special feature content from the previous Special Edition Blu-rays and DVDs will carry over to the new BD releases. The only exceptions are the Mission Control menu-based content from the previous DVDs, many items from Charles de Lauzirika's original 2003 Die Another Day: Special Edition and 5 items from the 2008 Casino Royale: Collector's Edition BD (The Art of the Freerun, Catching a Plane: From Storyboard to Screen, Storyboard Sequence: Freerun Chase, Filmmaker Profiles and Bond Girls Are Forever).[/highlight] So if you have those discs and want to retain all the bonus content, definitely keep them.

We've also confirmed that the 11 classic Bond titles previously released on Blu-ray will be available widely again on 10/2, the same day as the box set. We already know that Walmart will have 3 of the never-before-released titles as BD exclusives that day: Diamonds Are Forever, Octopussy and GoldenEye. We've now OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED exactly what we suspected, which is that Best Buy will have On Her Majesty's Secret Service, You Only Live Twice and The Spy Who Loved Me as BD exclusives on 10/2, and Target will have A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights and Tomorrow Never Dies as BD exclusives. So that's our Bond news for today. Again, that's official.

Mission Control menu-based content from the previous DVDs
What does this mean?

The old SE DVD had very cool movie specific menus, the Ultimate editions had a sort of generic menus for all the movies, Bondish but bland. I don't remember what Mission control was except I think a few of the SE dvds may of had it.

According to one review site :britflag: there is only a slight change form the original menus. Others claim the menus are the same, I suppose we'll have to wait for someone here to tell us.
The individual disc menus are not too dissimilar to the previous Bond blu-ray releases. The 007 logo appears against a grey-silver background, after which we are taken down the gun barrel and presented with short clips from the film, accompanied by the film’s theme music. The menu choices are pretty standard as you slide through the various options on each disc, for example “mission selection” and “MI6 Commentary”, and the movement through each option is fluid, making it easy to select what you want to watch. All these factors certainly ensure the menu for each movie is far from generic and sets the mood for each individual adventure.
