    I,Robot (26th Oct): http://www9.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=14061

    The Day After Tomorrow (12th Oct): http://www8.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=13650

    I have never bought any of the 20th Century Fox R3 2 disc DTS editions (Master & Commander etc.). Are these usually the same quality as the R1s (CTHE R3 discs in my experience are the same as the R1s, except for subtitles, of course)? If so at these prices, these are bargains (links above are not with this forum's 75p off). Also, I,Robot is listed as Oct 26th, which is a lot earlier than the R1 (Dec 14th) or R2 dates.

    Might take a chance and order them so. Already had them on order with Play.com (with the 10% voucher), but would save myself a few quid at these prices!

    hi
    thanks for the heads-up Ger :smashin: i think i may also take a chance and order, from memory, the only other region 3 i have is my copy of hero [ah, dances with wolves too :cool:] i've been impressed with their quality and definately think its worth a gamble at those prices :)
    thanks

    There is no gamble, all the R3 fox releases I have are the same as you'd get in the UK/US

    Or go to CDWOW Norway and get IRobot for £8.90. All you have to do is change your currency when you go to pay. (little drop down box for your currency is on the secure page)

    Got the following by email from CDWOW today:

    We just thought you would like to know that we have successfully
    negotiated a better price with our suppliers in relation to the The Day After
    Tomorrow: Limited 2 Disc Edition - Region 3 title from £11.99 to an
    amazingly low £10.99 !

    We realise that you have paid the full £11.99 so as a goodwill gesture
    we are passing this saving directly to you!

    You will be sent, by separate e-mail, a £1.00 E-voucher which you can
    redeem at anytime in the future at CD WOW!


    :thumbsup:

    The R3 dvd of Day After Tomorrow looks to be a clone of the R2 release as its 2 discs - R2 has a lot more extras than the R1 single disc.

    Is the Region 1 release only getting the single Disc Edition? as that seems pretty strange when its probaley going to get a Single and Double Disc Edition everywhere else.

    Either way I will be getting the R3 release, exact same spec as R2 but cheaper and earlier, what more could you want :thumbsup:

    I have been waiting to order this from CDWow, I emailed them last week and was told it wouldnt be shipped until release day so have put off ordering it but as you have it now I guess they must already have stock but arent telling people that.
    I was wondering though, did you get an email about it being shipped out or did it just turn up?

    got a shipping note on saturday

    haven't compared the 2 regions, but did notice on disc one menu a 'inside story' section and it shows AVP, slightly odd but haven't had chance to look at disc 2 yet.

    Well I got mine yesterday alright. The extras look to be the same as the R2. Must be 3+hrs of stuff on the 2nd disc (didn't really watch it, just flicked through it). There aren't any trailers though, which was a bit strange!

    I got mine through from CDWow today, they must have had alot of pre-orders as I got the standard packaging and not the Limited 3D cover packaging, shame that but still not bad at all at only £9.24 with Forum Link and Discount voucher :thumbsup:

    Anyone know if I, Robot is shipping yet, its just that The Day After Tomorrow started shipping 11 days before its release day and its 11 days today until the I, Robot release day so thought it might have started shipping as its also a 20th Century Fox title.

    Asked CD-WOW about this once and was told that once a title has been sold out or the amount of stock pre-ordered has been sold that the title is no longer available on site until stock has been replenished....at least that's their story...

    Just checked and its back on their site and considering it is released a week today I have put my order in, hopefully it will ship before the week is out.

    Quick question:

    Do CD WOW charge your credit card when you place the order or when its shipped?
    So could you order something and then cancel it before its shipped and not be charged?

    They charge you when you place your order, that is why I dont order stuff until about a week before the release date but if you do place an order and then decide to cancel it they are usually very quick at refunding your money.
