    Yeah, but will it have a DTS track if Sony has a new found respect for DTS soundtracks (see SuperBit DVDs) on non-Spielberg titles?

    Why can't they just stick with the original poster art?

    I agree. I'm quite a fan of original poster art on my DVD's. Granted, the new cover doesn't look bad at all, but I'd rather have the original artwork.
    And yes, if anyone has scoop on the PS2 version, please post them.

    I read that the PS2 version will come out about 6 months after this DVD release. Harry Knowles had this to say about the PS2 version:
    "As for the PS2 version.... I've already played with some of this, and yes it does go full 360 in full resolution.... it's quite amazing."

    The PS2 version has different scenes added in PS2 real-time graphics. It also allows you to see the action from different shots and rearrange shots to make it your own version of the film. The PS2 version will only be playable on a PS2, and not in a DVD player. There is also a different ending to the film-

    They took out the fact that Aki is pregnant with Grey's baby. I read an interview with Ming-Na where she said she liked the ending without it more. The second ending will be on the PS2 version.

    Morgan, that spoiler is still implied, by the lines and imagery, in the current movie. I also liked the ending as it is. Once you realize it, it makes the ending subtly more powerful.

    I think I will wait until the Japanese DVD release of the FF movie before I buy it. The reason for this is, so I can get Japanese language (hoping they will put English subs on it). I really can not stand the voice cast, and I am hoping the Japanese voice cast will be better!

    Andy,
    But, didn't they animate the lips to move in synch with the original English dialog, or did they animate the lips to synch in Japanese as well?

    Ummm, Final Fantasy: TSW was originally written and recorded in English. I don't even know if there is going to be a Japanese dub of the movie for that market (I guess there would have to be though). In either case the original film is in English, you'd be getting a dub getting the Japanese. I really liked the English cast anyway.

    Chris Lee stated that there wouldn't be a Japanese dub; they wouldn't want to dub over the great voice actors.

    Usually, when films are brought from the US to another country, they just subtitle it in the foreign language.
    I thought the cast was OK, considering the dialogue was very Final Fantasy styled (aka--what some would call stupid, drab, dry, boring).

    I'm interested to see what the "Joke Outtakes" are.
    "Audio Setup"? Hmm....DPL vs. DD or perhaps, *GASP* DTS?

    This film REALLY needs a DTS track. I saw it in a well equipped theater in DTS and the sound was amazing. I saw U-571 in the same theater, and FF has a mix that is right up there with it.

    Not to be flip, but the film was such a financial disaster that I'd be really surprised if it kept the same key art from the theatrical release to the DVD. Anytime a movie is a disappointment, they always seem to flub the art (for proof, compare the brilliant one-sheet art for Hollow Man with the odious video cover art) as though it was the poster which kept people away.

    Agree totally with the inclusion of a DTS track. I too saw this in a cinema that was playing it in DTS and thought it was a very loud and aggressive mix. Don't really like that DVD cover, they should have stuck with the poster art. (Although I didn't really like the poster art either)
