    According to yesasia.com, the Region 3 DVD of Bad Boys 2 has DTS sound. [​IMG]

    I already ordered my copy, and I will put up a review when I receive it.

    I've asked yesasia.com for confirmation if it indeed does or doesn't have DTS. I'll let everyone know when I receive a reply.

    Well, I e-mailed customer service at yesasia.com and this is the response I got:

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Thanks for your email.

    After checking with the product information, the DVD should has DTS sound.
    ETC. ETC. ETC.

    Although that doesn't make me 100% convinced, the best way to find out is to actually see it for myself. So once I receive it (which should be next week) I will let everyone know the outcome. [​IMG]

    According to a person who just bought R3 HK version of Bad Boys 2 in Hong Kong, it does not have dts. Consider it is a Columbia Tristar release, and the fact that Bad Boys was re-released in superbit format, we will be seeing Bad Boys 2 Superbit sometime next year.

    According to DVD Therapy the Region 3 KOREAN version of Bad Boys 2 has DTS.

    Can anyone who has purchased the Korean version confirm this?

    Saw a R3 edition of this in several stores here in Chinatown today. All the same...none with DTS.

    Doesn't mean it's not out there, tho.

    Got mine R3 från CD-Wow today. And as earlier said it does not contain a dts-track. Could anybody help me with the correct UPC code for this release? As always with CD-Wow and R3 the UPC is missing.

    CONFIRMED: R3 (SouthEast Asia) DOES NOT HAVE DTS.

    My friend just got his from the same website I ordered my Bad Boys 2 DVD on (yesasia.com).

    However, I am still looking for confirmation from someone if the R3 KOREA version of Bad Boys 2 does or doesn't have DTS.

    Actually,

    The R3 Korean has no DTS 5.1 Surround soundtrack.

    AsianDVD.com has the cover art for it and its pretty much the same as the R1 disc.

    The R3 Korean disc has no French soundtrack or subtitles. Instead there is an optional Thai Dolby Digital 5.1 Surronud soundtrack with Korean, Chinese, Thai, and English subtitles.

    Thank you very much rutger_s for clearing that up. Best thing to do is to wait for a 2nd SE version with DTS or Superbit.
