Well, several months of waiting around, more than enough time to roll out the replacements and a structure for issuing them, yet nothing. So what happens? Fans in the US get a substandard product and the record companies wonder why people download so much. It's because of the apathy for the industry caused by their own greed. We've been promised through a 3rd party (metal ages) that something would be done, while emails to IO went unanswered and they have not made anything official. Now several months later, we can't even get answers on the original posts. Any word or not? Are all the DVD's being sold in the US stores still the defective ones? Is this an issue that IO has forgotten and swept under the rug to move onto other business?
