I guess you're right...

Sazuma is a paradise now for someone who wants to order older titles, prices are silly!

But maybe they're not closing soon, just wanna get rid of old releases that don't sell anymore...

You know what the funny thing is? People in the music business tell me (okay, a guy in a downtown record store in Copenhagen) that in five years time the CD format will be OBSOLITE!!! Because more and more people are downloading their music now so the CD sales are going down the toilet. HOWEVER, more and more music enthusiasts are going back to collecting VINYL RECORDS again so in five years time we will only have download AND VINYL!!!

Maybe... dvd's are disappearing too and soon we'll see the return of vhs again!!! :blink: :blink:

(no, I'm kidding... I don't think vhs will come back and I don't agree with him that CDs are gonna disappear totally. I think CDs will probably become what LPs are today; you'll have to order them thru the mail and there'll be fewer printed copies).

Thanks for the heads up, just placed my first order :D

Always thought Sazuma was way overpriced but this 70% discount has certainly made their prices more edible ....

Would say AMEN to that VH, but let's hope DVD is around long enough for all these people now replacing their old rentals to sell all their old tapes off to VHS freaks like me :D :lol:

Yes, they're gone for good...Their releases went rather bad - even if they were Italian films! - and the store not better either. I know these guys had other jobs too with rather much better profits so they decided to close it. Last months they had very low prices, I was always thinking to buy some German sexy DVDs but left it for another day...

It was a great store and a nice label :(
