I forgot that Sony did this promotion..well now that kinda sux for the new 40gb PS3 that comes with Spider-man 3...cuz if ppl purchase that model then they'd be getting 6 Blu-ray movies and still no game. Well just play it smart and surely stores like Bestbuy will offer a free game along with the new PS3 for this holiday.

Make sure whatever you pick it's not a BD+ Blu-ray movie.

There's a lot of people complaining they are not working properly with their players now that BD+ has appeared.

BD+ is DRM it has nothing to do with good quality, its just there to stop copying or blu-ray drives running hacks as it can permanently disable them if you remove say, the multi region code.

Nobrainer, I was responding to hugjar. BD+ worked fine, took 10 to 15 seconds longer to load up. "best picture ever" = Silver Surfer looks great. Awsome detail

Nobrainer, thanks for the info, was not sure what the + was for.

That's nice that they're renewing this deal... But I participated in the initial deal and I've been waiting now 8 weeks for my 5 free blu-ray movies... nothing. And the damn place is only an hour away from me where I send the offer to. Pisses me off.

crappy deal for that much money

Can people in the UK get these 5 blu-ray discs or is it only the US?

Is there a hack for the PS3 to make it multi region? But If its used does it create other problems?

I have a USA model and live in (Pal) NZ, cant buy BD discs here and have to import them all.
