Default Godfather Trilogy $27.50 @Amazon UK (DEAD)

I missed it last time it was on sale, and it's been sitting in my Saved For Later basket for months at around 30. Back on sale today for 17.99, around $27.50, before VAT removal + shipping which pretty much cancel each other out.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001E25MBK

EDIT: Just placed my order, and it worked out a little better - Godfather Trilogy was 15.31 after VAT removal. I had 3 other titles in the order, and shipping was 6.05 for all 4 items, or 1.51 for each item. So my total cost for Godfather trilogy was 16.81, around $25.70.

Two quick questions; 1) is this region-free and can play in a NA PS3 (I assume it is, but I figured I should ask anyway), and 2) How do you remove the VAT thing? Is removed automatically? Mines coming up to a just a little over $29

EDIT: nix question two, I just overlooked it on my checkout thing.

EDIT: Okay, nix the first question, too. I saw in in the product description as I looked over it. I'm really going to have to start actually reading shit before I jump all over it.

Anyway, I'm going to order it. Damn good deal for such a fine collection

Yes, it's been reported by many who bought the UK version that the discs are the same as the US release, so no problems playing on a PS3. And it looks like you figured it out - VAT is removed at the stage where you say to ship to your US/Canada address, as since that it outside of the E.U., VAT is removed.

Okay, thanks. I actually corrected myself when I actually looked at the full product page and it clearly says All Region My bad on that. Jumped on that deal so fast I didn't even bother reading the information

Actually, Amazon - and most online retailer's - specs are notoriously inaccurate for Blu-ray, as they usually just copy over the specs from the DVD listing. While Amazon UK does say All Regions, it also says "Format: Box set, PAL". PAL is European standard def, 576i resolution; these Blu-rays are 1080p24 high definition resolution.

A better site for checking Blu-ray region codes is:

http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/index.php?region=b

which list The Godfather Collection as Blu-ray region free.

Thanks for the tip. I'll keep that in mind for the future
