Any recommendations on where to buy BD's?

I just hooked up my PS3 and am eager to watch get a few top tier movies (Apacolypto, POTC 1&2, and my personal fave Casino Royale).

Netflix rental. Get a month for the price of owning a single movie.

casino royale shold still be included in the sony 3 for 2 deal, you just have to find the sites offering the deal.

amazon and dvdpacific are some good places to buy from. dvdpacifc is where i place my pre-orders as they tend to ship early from time to time.

How do I look up the Sony 3 for 2 deal? I searched it on the various search sites and nothing came up.

It's no longer online, ended last week. You can get 40% off MSRP on select titles at Amazon though. Heres the link: http://amazon.com/gp/feature.html/10...cId=1000094831

Thanks! Unfortunately I'm not interested in any of the ones listed at 40% off. I decided to purchase at Amazon and ended up getting the four listed above... Casino Royale, both POTC's and Apocalypto... plus I decided to also get the PS3 F1 game. This should be a very fun start. Next is Blockbuster Total Access or Netflix... leaning toward BB TA for the ease of in store returns and free in store pickups (plus the one free game a month... I'm not much of a gamer so that should be plenty). I wanted to pick up a couple demo disks to always have on hand and will likely save the rest for rentals.

Good choices, you did not miss out on much on the Sony sale. Most of the titles were crap.. The best was Casino Royale. Also I suggest you download the F1 demo before you open that game. I thought the game looked nice, but gameplay was a dud; not very fun. I would hate you to waste $60 on a crappy game.

Thank you for your take on the game. I've read nothing but good reviews. My PS3 isn't hooked up to the net and probably won't be for a while. I'll be sure to read up more before opening the case.

If you have a FRYS's nearby you should go there. Try Target due to their relationship with Amazon.com They are cheaper than Best Buy and Circuit City.

amazon is probably the best place overall to get BD's as their prices are nice. In terms of brick and mortar stores, if you have a Fry's by you, I would go there. I have a Fry's across the street from Best Buy and every single BD at Fry's is $5 cheaper than at BB.

you should hook up your ps3 to the net, that way you can download patch updates earlier than those who download files, usually a day ahead. you're also missing out on a lot of downloadable contents via the playstation store. also with the ps3 hooked up to ur pc's network, you can stream media off your pc to your

if you don't want to run a wire to where you have the ps3 and don't want to go wifi, you can try powerline adapters. i use this one http://www.directron.com/hdxb101.html. u simply plug one end in a plug near ur ps3, hook up the included patch cable from device to ps3, and do the same near your computer and hook up cable to router.
