I'm so sad I bought the HMV steelbook off eBay from a good seller, new and sealed, but it doesn't play on the PS4 . I searched, apparently if i make a copy of the blue ray and include only the stuff needed I can make the copy work. Is there any other way? How are you guys watching it here in the US,? Maybe it's time for a new player.

Did you try a firmware upgrade for the PS4 ? I am surprised you are having issues with it

I played the disc's from the HMV steelbook on my region A PS3 without any issues.

Yes I always have the latest updates on it. It's a region issue is what the error says.

Your signature says you have an Oppo. I'd be curious to know if the Oppo reports the same error as the PS4.

This puzzles me to no end. You didn't perchance attempt to change the region on your PS4 ?

Lol, I didn't just but he player for this movie. I just wanted a decent player to not have to use the annoying PS4 and use the controller. If it also doesn't play it, i will change it just to view it, but I would like to play it whenever I want lol my other movies. Worse case scenario I just buy the region free 3D disc somewhere.

I'm on-call this week, so my time is very limited. Maybe next week, I'll see what the PS4 thinks about the HMV Great Wall 3D disk. I haven't updated the firmware in quite awhile, so I'll try it pre-update and post-update.

Servers at work were taken down for issues, so I got some free time.

Results:

PS4 Firmware 3.50 - Both 3D Blu-Ray and std Blu-Ray played fine. No region msg (Old Firmware)

PS4 Firmware 4.72 - Both 3D Blu-Ray and std Blu-Ray played fine. No region msg (Most current firmware)

The discs were from the HMV Great Wall 3D Steelbook

Still very puzzled about your results. Perhaps your new player will be better. I can't imagine the disc being region locked ?!?

Movie is a little, well, incredulous, and what is Matt Damon doing in this? That said, I enjoyed it, especially, the diving rope fighters and the cgi of the tower. A lot going on there for 3D cgi programmers.

Thanks for the recommendations here. Watched my UK copy last night and the 3D definitely impressed.

Waiting on A Copy

Thanks to everyone's positive feedback on the movie. I ordered a copy. I cannot wait to receive this one in the mail.

I have seen this movie in 2D so I image the scene with the female soliders jumping off the side of the wall has excellent 3D effect. After I purchase a movie in 2D I normally skip the 3D because I don't like to double dip.

The good reviews made me want to see it in 3D.
