I wonder if this is in direct response to the 2 for $50 HD DVD offer?

Brilliant value wow what a find - do staff get store discount on top of that too..? (not like I'm greedy or anything sub 30 bucks is great value). Damn I wish those cheaper sony players would hurry up and get here!

Starting to get to a price point where I may be tempted to give them a go.

All of them! These are sold in Australia, so no region issues to worry about. That is a great price BTW.

Looks like I may have to cancel my Amazon order for Shooter. The Big W price is virtually the same as the marginal cost of importing from overseas. Just hope my local store has stock.

Unfortunately that is not true for either regular DVD or Br. DVD has regional coding applied as standard. The players however may be region free. With BluRay, some movies and studios tend to pick and choose movies. Fox movies are defo region coded.

Yes, only HD DVD is region-code free : P

Damn these format wars!

At the risk of being a lazy bugger, is the local XMen 3 region free, or playable on Region A machines?

Oh my! You got me there. Why oh why did I just import The Fifth Element, Wild Things - Unrated, The Host, Infernal Affairs, Wings of Honneamise and Patlabor when I could have got them for $25 at Big W? I better cancel my orders for Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor 2, The Crow, Oldboy, Pans Labarynth, Memoirs of a Geisha, Troy Extended Cut, Underworld unrated and Blade Runner Ultimate Edition and grab them in this $25 dollar sale. :rolleyes:

Given the choice of buying locally or overseas, even for a few dollars saving buying overseas, I would be happy to wait, Having spent the last 7 odd years buying DVDs online, Im just used to it. Thats not to say I have never impulse bought locally, but I also hate to support big stores like JB. Odd, but just habit Im afraid.
