New Region 4 DVD versions for Buffy and Angel coming in November. Now in tin!

EzyDvd really do make the effort when it comes to DVDs. Their Serenity Tin DVD was lovely. Unfortunately I don't think Region 4 DVDs will play on my Region 2 XBOX 360. But ta very much for the news.
HOLY #### at those prices (I'm Australian, so this maketh me happy)! I already have the Buffy set, but have yet to get Angel, soooo...
Thanks for the info. From past experience, I've found the packaging on Australian discs (not just from ezydvd) is a lot nicer than its American counterparts. Not to mention Australian DVDs are in PAL format, which is nice.
My second copy of Firefly is also from them, which was the special tin packaging released sometime ago, slimmer than the US R1 box, it looks great on the shelf.
Unfortunately I don't think Region 4 DVDs will play on my Region 2 XBOX 360.


Actually, these are dual coded Region 2/4 releases, like most major distibutors' European and Australian releases are. As both use PAL format, it's just cheaper to make the same discs for both markets.
That's what I thought too but when I played my R4 Serenity DVD on my old Xbox, it wouldn't work. I must try and see if it will on my 360.

If I remember correctly, the fist disc of the Australian Serenity release is R2/4, but the second disc is Australian exclusive, and Region 4 only.
That's almost and completely depressing at the same time. When I bought the Serenity and Firefly tins from them a while ago the currency conversion was a lot easier on the wallet. *sigh*
Awww... this new set still doesn't give us the 40th disk we never got the first time.
