Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be a BD-Java-enabled interactive game, "Virtual Blackjack."

Just-announced tech specs include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.35:1) and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround tracks in English, French, and Portuguese.

Finally, Sony has released the Blu-ray box art for '21':

As previously announced, the studio has set the suggested retail price at $38.95.
