Free Pre-Order Game of Thrones Enhanced Version[Aust. Amazon]

Hi all

Just spotted this in the coming soon kindle books I assume its a pricing error and I'm not sure if its only in the Aussie store or not

A Game of Thrones Enhanced Edition: Book 1 of A Song of Ice and Fire [Kindle Edition with Audio/Video]

Kindle Price: $0.00
Sold by: HarperCollins Publishers

Amazon link

Product Description
A stunning enhanced edition of the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy, featuring an interactive map tracking main characters’ journeys, audio extracts of key scenes and a hyperlinked character glossary.In the game of thrones, you win or you die. Now a major HBO series.Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all will play the Game of Thrones.Winter is coming…

What happens when you convert a kindle file that has enhanced content to epub ? I assume you just loose the extra content?

Yep - that's why I managed to scoop it up. A small payback for always being overcharged.

Haven't seen one of these enhanced books before, and I was wondering how they got it to work on eInk. Then I saw this:

Kindle Edition with Audio/Video

IIRC on enhanced books I've gotten as freebies in the past it downloads a regular non-enhanced version of the book.

That's fine by me as I don't particularly care for the other bells and whistles anyway.
