I'm curious as to whether the newer release has any improvements in video or audio quality. I know its the same transfer but I'm curious if perhaps there is less compression on the newer issue or anything like that. I gave in too soon after looking for the newer one with the preferable plastic case at Best Buy ,for their 2 for $20 sale, after two of their stores only had the snap case. Then at a third store they still had some plastic ones. If they're exactly the same I'll probably just hold on to the one I have. I also know that Platoon SE is the same transfer as the original, but are there any improvements in terms of compression?
