Default Godsend Japanese Hd Dvd Where Can I Get It?

I've just found out that this does exist on Japanese ................it's no where to be found on EXPLOITED.

Does anybody know where I might be able to get a copy of this???

Kannisto??


Thanks much appreciated.

Because it is technically classified as a DVD release (that contains HD DVD containing the movie as an extra) it's not been available so widely in shops that sell imports outside of Japan (I think).

I copied this from the Import sticky:

Godsend (Japan - SHV ; Lionsgate)
Amazon Japan $32.23 (3800)
CD Japan $31.94 (3800)
Yes Asia $37.49 (free international shipping)
Play Asia $37.90
HMV Japan $24.78 (2850)
Note: Classified as DVD. Contains region 2 NTSC DVD (main feature + extras) + HD DVD (main feature only).

Thanks Kannisto, once again you're the man when I need information on imports. This seems like a rare find...............so basically the encode is a bonus disc of the movie? Wow

Thanks

Yes the HD DVD is kind of a bonus feature on this DVD release.

I had some pics and comments about it (together with Fragile) in this earlier thread, maybe you saw it already?

In Japan this disc is not a rare find because it's sold in places where DVDs are sold, so it's actually more widespread in Japan than most HD DVDs. Probably out in larger volumes than most HD DVDs here. I've seen it in various DVD stores that don't have any HD DVD releases in their shelves.

btw: If you e-mail Tony and make a specific request he can get ANY title you want. I have done this many times already.
It usually takes a few weeks, but he has come through every time so far.

sweet I'll think i'll shoot Tony an e-mail............and request it. I've pretty much bought all my imports from Tony and he's simply the best around. I rather not deal with all the custom crap from Japan.

I'm running out of imports to get from Tony, but I will give him some more of my money if he can get this for me.


Peace

Hey, kannisto - is this a first pressing only like The Magic Flute or is the HD-DVD incorporated with every DVD release?

Damn.............but then again this is not a common disc here in the states. I know Kannisto said it was common in Japan, but who on this board has actually watched this other then Kannisto?
