At Amazon.co.uk, new Chinese Ghost Story DVD (HKL) Going For 9,999.99

The reseller's price of almost 10,000 for a new copy of the Hong Kong Legends DVD "A Chinese Ghost Story" represents quite a mark-up from the
16.48 used price for this DVD from another reseller. Deep Discount UK is apparently no longer in the deep discount business for OOP DVDs.

At that price you'd think the least they could do is offer free shipping.

I wonder if VAT is included in the price.

On that note, the U.K. VAT rate is going up from the current 17.5% to 20% this coming Tuesday.

There's one or two marketplace sellers who tend to do this on almost all OOP titles (think they list on both the US and UK site). Guess they're just sitting on a copy, marking it up ridiculously and thinking "I'm content to keep it for now, but if some dumb schmuck is willing to pay that much for it, then they can have it!"

I doubt this seller seriously thinks they'll be selling it at that price anytime in the near future (if ever).

Can anyone view their order summeries at Amazon.co.uk? For some reason I can't.

I can. No problem.

So, did you pay 9,999.99 for this release? DeepDiscount are really going against their name here...
