That's such crap...why does the PAL region always have to suffer by either paying through the bottom for something or experiencing major delays to receive the equivalent.

We don't get the cheap prices with these because HD-DVD is doing ok over here where as it's pretty much bombed in the US compared to blu-ray.

I'd defo buy one of the drives if we got the same deal the US is getting.
