    I was wondering what the general shop prices are like in the states, compared to the online ones for R1 here?.

    cheers

    the prices in general wont be as good as somewhere like dvdsoon, but if you look in the specials, you can get plenty of good deals

    Not hugely competitive with internet suppliers in the major stores (eg Virgin, Tower). But if you can find a branch of Best Buy, they are often pretty cheap.

    Borders Books are a good place to browse too.

    Most malls have a 'Suncoast Motion Picture' store, but are usually pricey (ie: rrp)

    As others have said, mainstream stores like Virgin and Borders are ok to look in, but their prices aren't much different to our shops back home.

    I was in southern California recently and popped in to DVDPlanet.com where their instore prices are the same as their website prices.

    I was like a kid in a sweet shop!! :smashin:

    I just got back from Florida , Good times had :p

    Best Buys is the best that I found for prices
    They also so have specials on the new dvd releases every week
    they work out at just over a tenner for each disc that is a very good price
