I would think that they might due to it selling out but the 3 year contract won't be up until August 2016

You could import the Spain version too. Despite Region B being listed on this site, per the back cover that's posted, it's region ABC.

Yuck. That's even worse.

I just ordered the Australian release from EBay for $15 shipped. I think it's region B but I have an external BD writer.

Weird if it is the Aus disc. Plus they are gonna get playback issues for those not in the know, since Aus is locked to B. Good way to piss people off methinks. Not even sure why they would have that on the site, esp. without any warning. Please if anyone does order this, provide at least info on what you got if not pictures.

I believe Best Buy has their own version of marketplace now and that's why it's on there.

Yeah, region ABC + BD-r + popular/sold out title = bootleg.

It's sold by BB. They do put imports on their site from time to time, often for really inflated prices.

Here's another Aus. release sold by them (this one is region free however)

For those who can play Region B the Australian release is legit.

It's a pressed disc and it is region free. Resen is "hit or miss" when it comes to getting a BD-R or a pressed disc (their run of BODY DOUBLE is pressed, whereas their run of HORNET'S NEST with Rock Hudson [probably ripped from the german blu release] is a BD-R).

Regardless, they are a bootleg company.

Just a small correction for people that might want to know, it is not the same transfer, although it is from the same master. The AU release is about 22-23 GB whereas the TT is around 32 GB. So the encode is different with a lower bitrate.

Whether that makes a difference, especially in motion, is in the eye of the beholder
