Why do Americans seem so averse to owning a multi-region player? The rest of the planet has managed to deal with it to get the generally superior region 1/A releases that have come out over the last twenty-odd years, but a distributor outside the US puts together a decent edition and suddenly the Yanks are all "HELP HELP I'M BEING OPPRESSED."
It's the first thing I check when looking into new hardware, half of them are multi-region out of the box and the other half can usually be hacked just by typing a code into the remote. It's really not difficult.
Buy me a region-free Blu-ray player or your entire comment is hypocritical.
Is there a chance you were converting from Euros to Dollars?
Yes, Euros to Dollars. It came out to about $66. Unless I'm doing it wrong, somehow.
Regardless, the set is worth it.
That explains it. Base is in the UK, so that price is in pounds sterling, not euros.
Hopefully the exchange doesn't fluctuate too much by late October. I think the lowest rate I've gotten over the last few years has been $1.21 to £1. I think it was $1.23 when I checked earlier tonight.
