I was able to purchase it at HMV on Tuesday. Although, it was the only copy they had in store. So, it is out, but it seems to be pretty hard to find.

Yup... but they're overpriced for the most part.

Good selection though.

I pre-ordered it on the Canadian website and I got a notification the day after its release date saying that it's out of stock. Uhhhh, ok.

I'll wait until they get it though, since I pre-ordered it when it was listed at 23.99 CAD.

HMV stores are getting HD DVD and Blu Ray more and more. Although they seem to carry quite a few titles, they don't carry many copies of any of them. Mostly just one or two copies.

But, they are overpriced. I don't know what's up here in Canada, but most retailers don't seem to have embraced either HD format, and sell them overpriced. I usually just buy mine from Amazon.com, since the exchange rate isn't all that high, they have reasonable prices, and I'd rather wait a week or so to get my copy, then pick one up for a good $10 extra.

The only reason I picked up Smokin' Aces at HMV is because I wanted to make it simpler for me to exchange it if I was going to have issues with it like I had with Children of Men and The Good Shepherd.

Saw it at Best Buy on Thursday or Friday, it's definitely out. There's no way I'll pick it up at their ~$38 + tax price, though...

I initially had notice that my order was going to be delayed, and then it showed up on time. But there was supposed to be a Canadian delay.

most HMV's have hi def movies, i guess it all depends on the owners' decision.
