Game of Thrones

Reminder: HBO Releasing Awesome Game of Thrones Steelbooks Next Week

Winter is indeed coming and while we will have to wait until Spring for the next season of Game of Thrones, HBO is giving patient fans a holiday treat with a new batch of collectible steelbook sets.

Game of Thrones Season 1 and 2 are getting the fancy treatment first and feature all the bonus content from the original Blu-ray sets. Fans not only get elaborate new box art designs (complete with collectible sigil magnets!)┬áby Elastic, the same agency responsible for the Emmy-winning opening credit sequence, but a whole new audio experience, as the Game of Thrones Steelbooks are the first TV Blu-ray titles to feature Dolby Atmos technology (Atmos-enabled receivers are required to get the full experience, however). Of course, the Blu-rays will still be compatible with other audio set-ups, but it’s cool to see HBO catering to audiophiles who want the best sound experience.
