    Yay for Australia.

    Don't know what Sony is thinking with no US release. Wouldn't this be the perfect title that PS3 owners would buy?

    BD is NOT region-free.

    Lucky Aussies!

    Wonder why no word for R1? Still, I would think this title is also US bound.

    The disc is not released by Sony, it's a Disney title outside the US. And it's not region free.

    Yes, but apparently there are some BD releases that are region free. Region coding should just f#$%ing die all ready. IMO, BR made a mistake by requiring it on their players. I wonder if the lack of region coding on HD DVD is why a number of European BR releases are being done region free. It is BR's way of staying competitive since the lack of Region encoding on HD DVD players has got to be a big selling point for European HT enthusiasts.

    Bingo, Edwin.

    I was about to buy a PS3 in March, when I suddenly realized (except the relatively high price over here) that it wouldn't play any of the BD discs I already owned nor many of the ones I am interested in to buy.
    To make it worse: there are indeed some region free releases, but you cannot trust the indication on the cases. Sometimes it says "Region-A" when it appears to be region free after all. Sometimes it even says "1". [​IMG]

    So, I may want to try and get a (or rather: two) BD drive(s) in my HD PC, or import a player from the US after all. But for the moment: it sort of stops me at this front.

    (I do buy the occasional BR title, but if a HD DVD version is also available, the choice is easy, especially, because no BR titles currently have superior audio - Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD-MA not being available on it.
    Of course I also pre-ordered the Chicago and Casino Royale BDs, to get my own share of all-PCM - which I don't think is a solid solution for audio on disc-media in the long term.)

    All Fox titles have DTS-HD MA tracks. I actually find PCM to be at least the equal of Dolby TrueHD. Reviews of the one title to have a TrueHD track on HD DVD and PCM on BD, The Departed, indicate it's a wash audio wise or show a slight preference for the PCM track.

    You know Cees, to be fair, DD+ or DD is not a solid soultion on HD !! disc-media, PCM is there because in short term it's best possible way to get uncompressd AUDIO..... when all players and receivers will be doing DTS HD MA and DolbyTrueHD, there will be not need to have PCM......

    but for now ? if there is a space avaible I will take PCM any second over any DD+,DD or regular DTS track....

    I can't stand crap DD tracks from Paramount, come on Paramount WAKE UP, we are all for HD, and they are giving us DD ????

    and about titles avaible on both HD DVD and Blu-ray, well Warner can burn somewhere if they will continue to CUT any seriouse audio track from BR releases........... hopefully they change their mind hmm


    and I am sorry for little off topic [​IMG]
