Funny...My e-mail was dated today, and announce a drop in price, NOT a cancellation.

That Godfather trilogy was not an HD DVD to begin with, it was a DVD release and mislabeled in Amazon UK. They already corrected their mistake but it seems Amazon Germany hasn't corrected their corresponding UK import entry yet.

You can post all the emails you get from Amazon.de mate, but they ain't never coming out!
Amazon UK are behind other retailers in removing stuff, but Amazon Germany are even worse....expect a cancellation email in a month or so from them if you have pre-ordered!

Well, I am not going to argue with you. That's not the point of this thread, and this isn't Smackdown. I was only making people aware that there is activity on thse titles from Germany in that they are reducing the prices as recently as yesterday on titles they are evidently so out of touch with that they don't know they are cancelled. So my question is: Why did they bother to drop the prices?

Why did they bother to notify customers? If they are so unaware of the title's availability, why are they aware that the price has changed?

A bunch of people pre-ordered The Godfather Trilogy HD-DVD directly from Amazon.co.uk (myself included) and we all got an email stating that the set was mislabeled and is actually only a DVD set. You can cross your fingers all you want but I'll take info from the UK over info from Germany since the set is supposedly coming from the UK. Amazon is notorious (across the globe) for leaving things up for order that never get released. This just happens to be another example.
