    Can someone please explain this . . .
    Recently got into Buffy :blush: and went to order the second series. The prices are: Amazon - £58.99 new, or £49.99 used, and Play have it at £59.99 , HOWEVER, Play also have the region one version for £35.99, which even has extra features on:confused:

    How can this be, checked and double checked but they are definately the same series, same no. of discs etc etc, I just don't get the price difference. If you have a look at Amazon for a used one, some clever chappy is even selling a region one disc for £50.00, when brand new delivered they are £35:eek:

    Any comments . . . . .

    There have been lots of threads on this subject in the past - the price of region two Buffy/Angel is just ridiculous, however they are released years before the region one versions... The other main difference is that the region two versions are 16:9 widescreen whilst the region one's are 4:3 fullscreen.
