Default Blu-Rays from Street Vendors?

I exited the 4/5 Line at Fulton Street in NYC today, as is my wont, and saw a street vendor setting out a wide array of Blu-Rays for sale. I was intrigued, but reticient...anyone else with any experience purchasing these know if they're genuine, or about as genuine as the handbags they sell?

Well spotting a fake Blu Ray is fairly easy, but I would certainly question the method the movies were obtained.

They fell off a truck of course. Or they are fake.

There used to be a huge thread on the DVDtalk forum about some guy selling new DVDs on the street at Broadway and Fulton Street. If it's the same guy, his DVDs were authentic (according to the thread).

Here's the thread:

Did you check out the prices? I'd probably stop down there if I could grab a few movies for cheap.

I didn't...I was meeting my girlfriend for lunch, and fun as Blu-Rays are, she wins out

I do plan on stopping by again next week though. I was there at about noon on the dot and they were just being set up.

I stopped by, and the vendor was there again on Monday (and said he'd be there Wed-Fri of this week). That said, I was surprised at the prices...many were $25 per disc. Nonetheless, I'm sure haggling is de rigeur.
