    If you want NTSC then go for the R2 Japanese version.

    If you want an affordable version then opt for either the R2 UK or R4 Australian release.

    I believe that the R2(UK) and R4 versions are identical. I have the R4 and it's great.

    R1 for Predator in NTSC, if you want 2 discs set on Predator 2 R1. 1 disc on P2 ltbx region 4. Had mine 7 months before R1 was even being talked about. Both are 1.85:1 OAR with 5.1 Dolby Digital.

    I've got the R2 Japanese disc and it's a beautiful transfer with a great DTS soundtrack.
    Nice packaging also. A bit on the pricey side though.

    The Predator SE is supposed to be out in R1 in the next couple of months.

    The one problem with the Japan release is that you miss out on the text commentary track -- obviously it's not in English on the Japanese disc.

    Otherwise, they're all the same -- but each one is MISSING THE TRAILER...so keep your R1 disc just for that alone [​IMG]
