I got a copy of DREDD from Best Buy, (on release week) and popped it into the standalone Blu-ray player only to find that it would not load. You could hear the disc spinning in the player but no progress would be made.
I tried it on a Sony PlayStation 3 and it had the same issue. After doing some quick research on the Internet. It appears I’m not the only one. Another connection is that we got our copies from the same source Best Buy.
I would be fine if say the 3D version wouldn’t play but the 2D one would. A Problem I experienced with The Amazing Spider-Man 3D/2D Blu-ray combo pack. with Dredd it’s only 1 Disc. Maybe buying your media from a single source isn’t always a smart move.
