I'M SORRY TO SAY THAT,BUT WE DO DESERVE THE RESPECT AND MAYBE YOU FORGET THAT A PERSON IN JAPAN MAYBE GET PAYED BETTER THAN A PERSON IN GREECE OR WHEREVER...SO THAT DON'T EXCUSE A THING.....THE BAND SHOULD RESPECT THE FANS AND DON'T LET THE COMPANIES PLAY GAMES WITH OUR LOVE....IT'S REALLY SAD

I'm sorry that some of you (all of you?) feel you have been disrespected in that the Scorpions DVD w/ a bonus CD will be sold in Japan.
The reason, from what I understand, is because general sale prices here in Japan are more expensive than in most other countries.
On this website, you can buy the DVD for 18,99 EUR, but in Japan it is 25,24 EUR. So to balance the higher price to consumers, they will add a few extras. (Mr.Jabs also mentioned this in the radio broadcasted Rockline interview last October.)
Things are really expensive in Japan, so the quality has to be good or the products won't sell well.
So, it doesn't mean the band wants to treat Japan better than any other countries. It's just everything is so expensive here. Gasoline is four times more expensive here than in America. If you ever live in Japan, you'll understand how bad it is here.
I still do feel sorry about it, and I really understand what you mean and sympathize.
