As the issue doesn't really effect the Americans as Region A has the pick of the DVD and BluRay release versions and features , it is probably seen as not a big deal, but recently bought a chipped Bluray player, which will now play both DVD's and Blu-rays from all regions (and 3D). First order was Dredd, The Sting, Looper, Total Recall, The Raid, Expendibles 2 and Taken 2 in differing Region and platform variations. The only problem is finding the time to get the dot onto the lounge to actually watch something...
Already planning my next order - Django, Man with the Iron Fists and Last Stand - who doesn't like some mindless popcorn movies
