Warner Home Video has unveiled specs for its Blu-ray and HD DVD 'Ocean's Giftset,' which will be only way fans can get their hands on next-gen editions of 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'Ocean's Twelve.'

As the studio first announced last week, they will be bringing all three 'Ocean's flicks to high-def on November 13, timed to coincide with the standard-def debut of the latest in the blockbuster franchise, 'Ocean's Thirteen.'

But while 'Thirteen' will be made available separately as a stand-alone Blu-ray and HD DVD release, the first two films in the series, 'Ocean's Eleven and 'Ocean's Twelve,' will be packaged exclusively as part of the high-def 'Ocean's Giftset' collections.

The version of 'Ocean's Thirteen' included in the box sets will be identical to the next-gen stand-alone editions of the title, while 'Eleven' and 'Twelve' will include all of the same extras found on the previously-released standard-def DVD editions.

In addition, exclusive to the Blu-ray and HD DVD 'Ocean's Giftsets' will be never-before-seen additional footage and deleted scenes, plus more still to be announced.

Tech specs are not yet in for the Giftset, but we'll keep you posted.

Retail price is $79.98 for the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions.
