If I buy the Lord of the Rings trilogy on blu-ray can I still get the dynamic theme?

@4, read High-Def Digest and other review sites before you buy the BRs; they screwed up the video and are getting reamed for it. Additionally, of the 9 discs, 6 are standard DVDs with the same old “special features” in low-res standard video. What a disgrace.

If the original Blu-rays are that bad, I can only imagine what a mess the super-compressed, lossy download must be.

ZOMG a three part documentary on WALKING is finally available! DAY ONE! Wake me when Lucas releases the real (first three) trilogy with Han shooting first.

Another week and still no 90210 or Melrose Place on PSN.

I hope you guys realize at some point that you can only get so far with crud like Veronica Mars, Smallville, and The Vampire Diaries in the CW section.

Just thought I let everybody know that.

Also be warned, LotR is the theatric release, not the extended releases.

And, yeah, BD release is really messed up for those as well. They really didn’t do anything worthy for BD on those.

Wouldn’t the whole LOTR trilogy in HD take up about 150 GB of space? If I’m wrong about the size please tell me.

I would like the dynamic theme, but; 1, I’m Canadian; 2, I bought the bluray. Yeah they screwed some things up, but I got mine from Futureshop when they had a price mistake; 20$ CDN. Can’t complain for such a low price.

+ SunshineSkyBlue on April 10th, 2010 at 11:05 am said:

hi

i have created a US PSN account and would like to download-purchase some movie titles

however, when i logged into Playstation Store, i only have the following items shown:
-new releases
-games
-view all by titles
-demos
-add-ons
-media (no movies or TV titles, only have The Tester, Qore and some trailers)
-themes & avatars
-top downloads

could it be that i am residing in Asia, so those contents are not visible even i logged in to my US account? (reason for holding US account: Asia PSN lacks a whole lotta contents/DLC, availability/releases are much slower)

last but not least, please allow the use of international credit cards for payment

thanks a lot in advance

#28 – If you create a PSN account designed for a region outside your own, certain things (like the US Video store) canot be accessed. This is because PSN can “see” that your IP is from outside the region that such things were ment for & hence they’re blocked. You may not be able to access the US video store, but the US cant use certain features that the EU has as well.

#29 Spazinator – thanks, understood better now
hopefully one day Sony will remove the region restrictions

#30 CDubyahS – so true for my case too, cannot pass the border to access Video Store :(
