Stargate Universe season one complete DVD and blu-ray box set for US.

Stargate Universe season one is coming to the US/Canada as a complete DVD and blu-ray box set, instead of the disappointing half-season sets. As, always, the sets will contain plenty of special features, ranging from audio commentaries to behind-the-scenes videos. The blu-ray version will include some features not available in the DVD release. The box sets are scheduled to hit the shelves in the US/Canada on October 5 for an RRP of $60 for blu-ray and $50 for the DVD. The UK has had access to the complete season since July 5. No word yet for a release date for Australia (Region 4). Full press release and features list.

Huge Stargate props and costume auction.

Over 850 items of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis props and costumes will be auctioned on September 25 and 26, 2010 at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle, Washington, USA. Everything from Apophis's Helmet to Zat guns will be up for grabs. Including the outdoor Stargate. None of the items on offer are cheap, so if you can't afford any of these items or if you can't get there, feel free to drool over the auction catalog.

Stargate Resistance updates.

It has been announced that Stargate Resistance will receive two new game modes ("King of the Hill" and "Arena"), more achievements, a new map and new character models. More info here.

More legal wrangling over Stargate games.

Former shareholders in Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment (developers of Stargate Worlds) are suing Dark Comet Games and Fresh Start Studios (operators of Stargate Resistance) for conspiracy against the bankruptcy court. More details here.
