possible BestBuy Exclusive?

Let me start of by saying:
In the press release that I post, it states that the 'DVD' and the "Bluray Combo" pack will
release on MAY 14th. That being said. I was looking on BestBuy.com as I noticed this:

Cloud Atlas (Blu-ray Disc)
Format: Blu-ray Disc
Release Date: 5/14/2013

Cloud Atlas (Blu-ray Disc)
Format: Blu-ray Disc
Release Date: 5/14/2013

Cloud Atlas (DVD)
Format: Blu-ray Disc
Release Date: 5/14/2013


on their website the second bluray they list [the one in the middle] is the highest in List Price and match roughly the SRP that is mentioned in the press release. The same with the dvd. If you look at the link on the second Bluray listed. It says, "Cloud+Atlas+-+2+Pack+-+Blu-ray+Disc", which, is what a combo pack is. So, WHAT IS THE FIRST BLURAY ON THAT LIST? NO SINGLE DISC BLURAY has been announced [outside of the ones that Rental places may carry].

It's likely a blu-ray steelbook or some other Best Buy exclusive.
