Sten - thanks for the tip: I've ordered it. At that price I doubt whether the R1 or 2 versions will be cheaper. Possibly (though not necessarily) there will be fewer extras on the R3, but I couldn't give a fig about extras anyway.
Sometimes, som foreign company may produce the DVD unlike region 1. For example, I got a few Japan DVD like the 6th day was produced by Pioneer and not Sony. Enemy of the Gates Japan was produced by a Japanese company. Same as 3000 miles to Graceland and so on.
