    Black Hawk Down SE comes out in the US at the end of June, the only difference is the DTS track

    Guess I'll be getting the Jap R2 release of Black Hawk Down since it contains the DTS track...

    A DD 5.1 track, a DTS track and 3 audio commentaries on one disc. There is a reason why the DTS track was left off the R1 DVD. Not that a halfbitrate DTS track (almost certainly using the same mix as the DD track) will make much of a difference anyway.

    Yeah there was a reason, instead of the DTS track on the R1, theres a French and Spanish 5.1 DD track! And the difference a DTS track would make, is a matter of opinion...

    Thanks for the post, I was wavering if I should get the US edition or not. This clinches it for me.

    We have a winner! Brett is correct!

    It has nothing to do with "company policy", and frankly, the DD track sounds great so I don't see what the problem is

    Honestly, I think adding a second soundtrack having exactly the same content but with only a different codec should not take precedence over adding some totally different languages (like French and Spanish) that are often spoken inside the US and Canada.

    In New York I noticed English and Spanish signs in the metro. Obviously serves a purpose.

    Craig, yes

    And Cees, as was said before, why sacrifice bits for people too lazy to read subs? [​IMG]

    Jeff,

    Yes, but are you sure they can read?

    I actually just got the american version of BHD today from the MySony deal. I'm tempted not to open it but considering the Japanese 3 disc version is $61...i think I'll pass.

    I recently got the (original) Rollerball SE which is anamorphic and has a new doc. Sweet. NOT available here yet for some odd reason..
    And "Eyes Wide Shut" which is unaltered, uncensored.
    Anyone know how "Night on Earth" looks??? I read on CDJP that it was anamorphic? It's oop now but Amazon.jp still has them. One of my faves and I wonder why it's not out here. It comes as a 2pack with Mystery Train which I'll prob'ly sell if anyone's interested as I saw it once and don't really need it.
