    I've been waiting for this to be available individually! Does anyone know if this is just a repackage of the version available in the three-pack, or a new BD?

    Yet, the press release has the same UPC for this disc as the one released on 07-14-09. Also, the BRD of this title was on sale with a couple of retailers earlier this year including Best Buy and Amazon as a single release. Either way, I won't purchase it again unless this so-called new audio commentary has a new transfer to go along with it which I seriously doubt right now.

    I got tired of waiting and bought the identical UK BD (for less) a while ago instead.

    If it does not have original theatrical subtitles (or if it is the first release like Crawdaddy suggests), I might bite. If they include original theatrical subs, they keep lossless audio for the original language track, and the video is up to the standards we have come to expect from Sony, I will definitely bite!
