Anyone know anything about DVDs in Malaysia?

I'm in NY right now and will be going back to Malaysia for good soon. I've talked to my friend back home and he told me that the bootleg DVDs go as low as RM 10 (US$2-3, barebones but not bad quality), and the better ones are RM 18 (US$4-5, with extras, and perfect DVD quality, some even have DTS).

I have heard that even Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within is already out for the RM 10 version, as well as Planet Of the Apes. Anyways, I just want to know if the DVDs are totally different in Malaysia, or just the same, cos' if it's not much difference, then I guess I'll keep my wallet close, and not buy anymore DVDs here until I go home.

Any kind of answer will be very helpful.

Good advice.

Will other users please remember that a site of this nature cannot condone piracy.

I've closed the thread but will leave it up as a reminder to anyone unaware of "the rules".
