^just ordered 13 copies…. and now i’m $300 poorer T___T
WHAAAAAAA??! Are you for real??? O____________________________________________________O
It’s going to be painful enough parting with almost forty bucks as it is >< BUT IT'S FOR SOSHI!! ❤ #lifeofasone indeed ^^
13 copies?!? You are definitely a dedicated sone ;O
also, let me be one of many to say that the girls look incredibly sexy in those pics #SNSDwhysosexy?
OOH! yay I want the deluxe version… but i need a bank account first *cries*
LOL I’ll just rely on the scans from the good samaritan netizens. The record companies are totally milking us dry. Two tracks and you pay that much? 😐
wasnt allow to buy online……wait until im in college…
den i can buy on my own….
SNSD, fighting! ^^
whats that in uk money
Already ordered Deluxe First Press Limited Edition last night! i just can’t wait! Hope to see them more in the future! shucks! japan sones are so lucky with concert that they are going to get from the girls. SIGH. wish i was there :(. But all the best :).
Yesss .. I’m in Japan from the 1st of April to the 24th. Time to preorder and pick it up while I’m there 🙂
I just thought you should know that I’m OOZING WITH ENVY atm… D:<
I’m going to be there on the 1st also. JaeCee, we should meet up!
really want to buy but why “This is a Region Code 2 DVD. Please make sure your DVD player is compatible” is stated..what the different…?
^Try checking this page out – it can explain the region issue better than I can 🙂
25 bucks for a two track single? You MUST be kidding me, as much as I love Soshi that is nothing short of a highway robbery. Now if it’s a massive photobook I’ll overlook the lack of music but come on, you can buy tracks on iTunes for a dollar or so and just download the MV. I want to support the girls but selling CDs for $25 is why so many people just illegally download music nowadays.
Yes the single is very expensive, but it’s standard Japanese music pricing, nothing out of the ordinary and it’s not like SNSD singles are purposely charged for more. Japanese music for some reason are just expensive, heck everything in Japan is expensive, just the standard of living is different, you may not like it but that’s just how their market is, calling it highway robbery is rather uninformed. Do keep in mind the normal edition is only $14.75, and MVs are usually not given out for free in Japan (which means downloading the MV would be a form of illegal downloading), so there is value in those DVDs and the photobooks. Japanese people in general shun illegal downloads and support legal music ownership so that’s another reason they can continue to charge high prices. Single songs on iTunes Japan cost about 299yen, which is way more than a dollar, but if you don’t like it, by all means wait for the full album that includes these new tracks, but who know when that will happen.
*calls brother to make him buy it for me* 🙂
Damn Jane xD You and your trading card obsession..XD
SM sure knows how to draw every single penny away from us..
Muaha. Used some of my cdjapan credits! Deluxe edition
Looking forward to my Deluxe Edition of the new album 😉 😀 !!! By the way, if you register as a new customer on cdJapan, the store gives you a 300 Yen credit, which you can use to offset the price of the item (i.e. 1800 Yen [or less, if you are a foreign customer] – 300 Yen). I think that will “lessen” the “sting” of paying that much money for the item by a bit 😉 !
hey kenneth, can you help me order one too? 😀
Sure, I can do that. I assume you’re from Singapore 😉 ? BTW, did you know a booth at Orchard Cineleisure (2nd floor, near the escalator leading to the next floor) has for sale posters of both A and B “Mr. Taxi” album covers 😀 ? One poster costs S$15 and both go for only S$18 🙂 ! I know as I got myself a set yesterday 😀 ! (Give me a contact e-mail/phone so we can firm things up ;)). Cheers !
Wait, so does that mean there wont be an MV for Mr Taxi? o.O
Just ordered the deluxe and limited edition. I am now a happy but poor Sone. Gotta start saving for their Phuket DVD again.

A jacket? What?
omg!! i wanna deluxe!! lol 🙂 🙂
SNSD jjang!! waiting 4 mr taxi inpatiently!!
i’m happy for u guys because you’ll be able to purchase the delux edition, while i can only buy the regular edition. why? because i’m from the u.s., and the dvd only comes in region 2. seriously, i think SM should create a website that can deliver goods to global consumers so fans around the world (like me) won’t have a hard time with technical compatibility 😦
While you are absolutely right about the global audience, the DVDs produced in Japan are very strictly controlled and I don’t believe they allow it to be anything but region 2. Plus, SM and Universal Music Japan probably aren’t expecting a huge global audience for their overpriced singles, so they will be focusing on the local Japanese market. What you can do is use software to change your DVD-ROM’s region, but as you said it is a technical hassle.
Damn, I’m so broke now I can’t even afford one. O____o
Will there be a HD and bigger version of Album Jacket A soon? ^^ Hehe.
Are you from Singapore ? If so, there is a booth on the 2nd floor of Orchard Cineleisure that has HD posters of both covers for sale ;). It costs S$18 for both. I know ‘cos I got a set yesterday (12-3-2011) 😀 !
I guess, Run Devil Run and Mr .Taxi Japanese Mv will be not posted in YouTube. SM Entertainment has make Super Junior – M- Perfect Mv Private and I guess they will done so to SNSD too.
I think I’m gonna buy Deluxe and Limited since photobooks are different 😛
(I’m thinking YesAsia, but which of the sites would have faster delivery? Want it ASAP!)
Does anyone know of a way to play DVDs bypassing region restrictions? My DVD player says it can change Regions to a maximum of 4 times, don’t know if I wanna do that
Please don’t do that (change regions) as the DVD player will be “locked” to the final region entered after the 4th change, allowing you to play only that region’s videos after that 😦 😉 ! If you can afford one, get a player that plays ALL regions (it exists) :D. Hope this helps.
