    When I heard the title I thought, "That's not a movie title, that's a Before and After puzzle on Wheel of Fortune."

    The reason for the BD having only the PG-13 cut according to The Digital Bits:


    ...in the Sept. 9 Edition of Home Media Magazine.

    Hmm. That Japanese set is what I'm after. I'd prefer the unrated edition of Live Free... on Blu-ray but I don't mind going without if I can get a BD boxset of all four flicks.

    Sounds silly I know, but a complete boxset appeals to the collector in me and I can always swap out the PG-13 disc for a later unrated edition (presuming the Jap set comes with the PG-13 version).

    One to keep an eye on at YesAsia methinks...

    Makes.No.Sense.

    Wonder if P.S. is still around to see the need for a reversal on this decision.

    Hmmm. If the set turns out to be close to the price of 1-3 I'll probably pick it up (as long as they don't cancel it). If I don't like 4 there's always Ebay.

    Man, Die Hard on BD has been a whirlwind of ups and downs, hasn't it? This latest news is the best yet for me however. Now that they'll be released individually, I can just buy the original, rent Live Free or Die Hard, and be done with it.

    I agree. I'll be buying the first one and renting the fourth.

    I own the first on SD-DVD so there's no need to upgrade. This though, #4 I'll buy the day it streets, unrated or not.

    Eh, I'm just going to grab the box set and call it a day. I want those first three and I saw the fourth one twice in the theater, so in the end I am okay with that cut (I doubt I will watch the disc for 'Live Free or Die Hard' more than once or twice again anyway). Besides, has anyone heard what will be in the unrated cut? I mean, we have all seen 'unrated' cuts before that have had additional footage that was tame to say the least.

    Just wanted to point out, that also Japanese "Die Hard Quadrilogy" Blu-ray set includes the "PG-13"-rated version. Our visitor (in Rewind) confirmed that to us (he bought the set).

    I bought this set and loved it.

    DH4 apparantly sold 100,000 copies as well but I don't know if that includes the boxset sales.
