Question Why is my R1 HP called "Philosophers Stone" ?

I received this today and I thought the R1 version was Sorcerers Stone, but mine say Philosophers Stone. Are there two version of the R1 ? I checked on Amazon but could only find R1 (US and Canada) and that said Sorcerers Stone.

I think you'll find that the R1 (USA) version is called The Sorcerors Stone, with the R1 (Canada) named in the 'proper' way!

Most R1 suppliers are either based in Canada or source their stock from Canada as it's cheaper, and so many probably will end up with the TPS, rather than TSS which you can get if you deliberately go for a US supplier...

Ah that will explain it, as am sure it was sourced from Canada. what confused me was when I searched on Amazon and it said US/Canada by the HP DVD, but they probably meant R1 is US/Canada.

Thanks,

Dave

LOL why is it that the US has to be renamed? They have to change everything don't they?

Should be getting the Philosophers Stone version from DVD Boxoffice (Canada) this week..

Because the book had already been renamed by the US publishers of the book.

I'm not a HP fan, but I think it was because the Yanks wouldn't know what a 'Philosopher' is!!
