I think JBHiFi tend to have competitive prices. Border's has a poor selection IMHO (well the Wellington one anyway). Whitcoulls tends to sell full price and the Warehouse selection is spotty across outlets. None of them had Quantum that I could find.

As for selling overseas ones legally here, there should be no issue if you are a private seller. I think the legality question (if indeed one does exist) only applies to commercial retailers.  I tried to exchange a few US sourced PS3 games at JB as tradeins for some new games but they would not accept them saying they lacked the NZ Censor Classification. But I don't think I would be in trouble if I sold them on Trademe

[edit]

Just saw Quantum for $39 at JB - short term special

James Bond: Regardless of the odd sale, whats the cheapest place in NZ to buy blu-ray titles?

For example, Quantum of Solace is $49 at Borders. Is there a store that sells blu-rays for less? (i.e. $40-$45)

I don't like buying blu-rays or DVDs from overseas stores as I'm not able to sell them (legally) if I want to in the future (No NZ classification sticker)


 


The first thing I do when a get a DVD is to remove that crappy sticker from the cover..





Regards,

psk20: Argh, yeah, I work at Canterbury Uni so I could probably have done that even though I'm only a lowly research assistant/TA :P


In my opinion, no one who has a job is lowly. I hold anyone who works, in high regard.

But this is really off topic.

I see JB HiFi have Bladerunner for $25 which is supposed to be good in HD.

Might be, go check to see if it is still where you left it. If not its probably your one.

Amazon UK has dropped the price of a bunch of Blu-Rays to 10 pounds and many are in the buy 3 for 2.  If you haven't got the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy they are 10 pounds each and in the buy 3 for 2 sale.

I picked up:

Die Hard 2 [Blu-ray] [1990] - £9.98
The Transporter [Blu-ray] [2002] - £9.78
Behind Enemy Lines [Blu-ray] [2001] - £9.78

Worked out to NZ$70 including postage.

I finally bit the bullet and purchased from Amazon UK. Got Zulu (been hoping this would be released here), RE: Extinction and FF. Last two were just fillers, only really wanted Zulu.
