    I'm hoping that Columbia/Tristar decides to make it a Superbit Deluxe release. Kind of makes sense ... and I would love an improved transfer to boot!

    Anyone know when the next special edition is supposed to come out?

    I don't think it will be a 'Superbit Deluxe' as P Anderson has repeatedly stated that another commentary has be recorded for the future release and as you know no 'SuperBit' title released to date has retained it's commentary track.

    I know that when questioned, Anderson indicated that the 2-disc set would be released before Xmas. While I agree that this could happen (there is no sense for Columbia to announce the 2 disc set now, while the standard 'Special Edition'[1] is still selling) I think it is more likely this will be available roundabout Q2 2003.

    I'm interested to see what the retail release of Resident Evil in the UK will consist of. Will we get the 'Super Special Edition' right away?



    [1] How Columbia could class the initial release of Resident Evil as a 'Special Edition' when they knew a better version was 'in the works' is beyond me. This really is a case of ripping-off the consumer.

    I really really really want this movie. This has 'guilty pleasure' written all over it. I had a ball in the theater, and I'll have a ball again when the 2 discer comes out! Here's hoping for a pre-Xmas street. [​IMG]

    I've been holding off on the purchase because of the 2 disk set ... but the wait is killing me!
    Darn, I thought it would be a perfect candidate for Superbit![​IMG]

    I too am waiting for the next release but...I heard that there would be NO NEXT RELEASE (not yelling, but wanted to make my point).
    I guess what I'm wanting to know now...will there actually BE a new release?

    A better transfer you have to be kidding right? Anyway from what I heard the 2 disc set will be out early next year around the same time the 3 disc version of Black Hawk Down comes out.

    Probably the smartest marketing move would be to wait until the release of Resident Evil 2. Anyone know when that's expected?

    Concerning Nemesis(RE2 movie), I'd imagine that the script is getting close to completion. As P.A. has continually been saying that he has been working on the script for a while now.

    So, when we all toss our 1 disc editions for two disc collectors editions, are they going to come out with a three disc psychotic collector edition?

    DVDFile just reported a Superbit edition is coming on 12/17. Not SuperBit Deluxe, so NO extras. I don't think this bodes well for an SE. [​IMG]

    I wonder if the 'extra' extras will only be available on the (unannounced) R2 retail version?

    My first thoughts when Anderson was talking about an upcoming 2 disc set was that the R2 version would be split into 2 discs - sometimes this happens as the films contain extra language tracks and subtitles.

    Then I heard about the extra commentaries and alternative endings so thought it was for the R1. Perhaps it is just for the R2 release. Would be nice to get something 'extra' after the *cough* *spit* RENTAL release over here.

    Always thought it was dubious that the R1 version was labeled 'Special Edition' - I see that they took the SE moniker off 'Enigma' which is due for a new release next year.
