I doubt they'll ever release them here, they have to protect their cash cow for a while yet. Funny that there rather then try to sue everybody and inflict draconian copy protections they just majorly lowered their price to compete with the pirates.
If they did that here faster with the players and BD movies I think they'd make even more money. When dvd got cheap enough I just bought them, I refuse to buy Blu ray at 20 to 25 each unless it's something I REALLY like. I have about 385 movies, mostly dvd, about 25 HD-DVD's and 10 BD's I bought the hd-dvd's becuase the price was right on the players and the movies, I bought the BD player because sooner then later the supply of cheap HD-DVD movies would dry up and I'd be forced to buy Blu for my hi def fix, plus I got a smokin deal on a demo player. I sure don't want to have 3 players on the rack just to do HD, I really didn't want 2 either but the dual format machines were more expensive at the time and not playing every movie.
