Cena And Punk Are Truly “The Best in The World”
And No One Can Dominate Them…Why? Cause, they’re the Best! Nuff Said.
Stupid Cheap Vince. That is all.
if there not going to continue doing bluerays they should of never started.thats just 25 extra bucks in my pocket when they dont.how do you go from blueray to dvd and be happy.
bullshit technology cant enjoy it
@LP1 and Dave. The Blu-Ray, region free players have 2 of the best features fans like us can hope for. 1) They play ALL region DVD’s, everything from NTSC, to PAL to anything else. So, pretty much it doesnt matter what part of the world your DVD is coming from. It plays it all, so theres no limits. 2) They play all blu-rays as well. As i said before i didnt have a blu-ray OR a region free player, so i thought they had to make one with both and the only place ive found it is amazon. I think I have a Samsung. Great player. It does the trick and now theres no limits to what I can purchase.
If it weren’t being released in Europe, I’d say Vincent Kennedy McMahon doesn’t want people to see him in 1080p HD. 1st MITB cancelled, then SummerSlam; both of which have stories he’s involved in.
Does WWE still plan on doing a Best PPV Matches set for this year on blu ray?
just get a ps3, its 249$ now.
@anonymous – I don’t think it would unless you have a PS3 that plays Blu Rays from that region.
Would the Blu-Ray play in a PS3? Help would be appreciated. Thanks
@SRB, this is probably a dumb question, but do region free Blu-ray players also play region free DVD’s, or just Blu-rays?
20 more of my dollars wwe dosnt get
Aww, crap! Why? Why? WHY? I wants me some blu-ray, sirs.
@ SRB: what region free blu-ray did you buy? I bought a panasonic region free dvd player several months back and been buying the tagged classics from amazon.co.uk, just awesome stuff. Would love to get a region free blu-ray player, but not sure what’s a good one.
@LP1. I do not believe they sell them on Blu-ray in the UK or anywhere. For the longest time I cried and complained about how the UK fans get Tagged Classics at their local stores and we get nothing even close. Then it was suggested to me to get them from amazon.co.uk, something i never even thought of. At the time i didnt have a Blu-Ray or a region free player so i just decided to spring for both rather than getting 2 DVD players. Those Tagged Classics pay per views from the Attitude Era are a must have. Well worth the purchase my friend.
@SRB, do they sell the Tagged Classics on Blu-ray in the UK also? If so then I will have to get a region free player immediately.
@LP1 I had to do the same thing to get my hands on the Tagged Classics series. I went with Amazon.com for the purchase. I picked up a Blu-Ray region free player. It was about $250, but well worth it.
Well, if the plan is to only release certain Blu-rays in the UK and not in the US then it looks I’ll have to pick up a region free Blu-ray player. Thanks WWE.
The Blu-Ray is a must have for this event.
That sucks…if it’s being released in Europe, at least it should be available in North American as well. But i guess to be fair Over the Limit 2011 blu was canned in the UK and only available in the US. But doesn’t seem like a fair trade.
