    I'm wary that they may use the same transfer as the re-release a few years back since I prefer the look of the older dvd so this will be a wait and see for me even though Ghostbusters in one of my favorite films. I hope Ghostbusters 2 get a proper special edition and not another barebones disc. I've wanted to see its deleted scenes for 20 years now and there's a lot to talk about on a commentary track.

    Was there really that much difference between the two releases, PQ wise? Anyway, it's a Sony release, so it's probably a new master. I do hope they leave the special effects as they were and not clean them up or anything.

    If only that would happen, all they did was change the green slime from the 2005 DVD release to blue! I bet it took only 5 minutes to do that in Photoshop!

    I still wish they had just done the simple "no-ghosts" logo on black.

    It looks like they've slightly updated the cover. The "no ghosts" symbol is no longer off-kilter. (On a funny note, I mentioned this to a friend once when we went to a video store. He said, "This is why you're here with me and not a girl.") [​IMG]

    And according to the back cover, we'll also be getting a "video game making-of featurette" as well.

    I'll be buying both the Blu-ray AND The Video Game for XBOX 360 same day!
    Wait, why did they leave off Ernie Hudson from the cover?[​IMG]
    And how much later will GHOSTBUSTERS II is going to be released on BD? I read somewhere it's finally getting an extra features release.
