    Ive also decided to add a section on the available box sets. This is mainly to help people spot counterfeit products amd I will probably add a bit more to help with this soon.

    BlackHawkDown was a Korean Superbit release, not UK.

    The questionable ones (PunchDrunk etc..) are not questionable, they are legit Superbit releases.

    In France, Final Fantasy was released as a Superbit title.

    I know France has quite a few titles and I will try to add these later. The Final Fantasy release sounds interesting and they still have Gladiator too.

    The others mentioned were already present. I will order the list by title soon and simplify it too.

    The titles I mark as questionable is because they contain additinal foreign audio tracks which is against Superbit principle.

    Thanks Peter,

    I will add those and reorganise the list later. I have a feeling im missing some Korean titles too although it seems like BHD is the only unique Korean Title.

    No, Black Hawk Down is available as a Superbit on R1, R3 and later this month on R2UK as well.

    Go to koreandvds and do a search for Superbit and you will find the R3 Superbits.

    Peter,

    I was a bit unclear, I meant unique in that it included an extras disc and the OST. The Korean discs seem to be a good price, do you know what languages are offered and what language is used for packaging and menus?

    Robb,

    thanks for the list. But man, is it just me, or is it really to hard to follow up with the list. By the way it's set you can never get the whole scenario.

    Maybe somethig like this:

    Fifth Element (US,HK)
    Men In Black (US,UK,Jpn, Korea)

    I'd suggest you separete PAL and NTSC listings, as they're actually different realeases. So AV quality isn't the same throughout regions with different color standards.

    OK, a few remarks:

    all the titles you list under the 'All but Korea' are available in Korea.
    Big Hit, Snatch, A Knights Tale, Spiderman, Men In Black that you list on the 'All but Australia and Korea' are available in Korea as well.
    The One and Das Boot that you list on the 'All but Jpn and Korea' are also available in Korea.
    Fifh Element is not a US only title, it's available in HK, Brazil, South America (and Mexico if I'm not mistaken).
    From Here to Eternity that you list on the US and Jpn only is available in Korea, HK, Mexico and South America (except Brazil).
    Anaconda isn't a US and UK only title, it's available in Korea, Mexico and South America (except Brazil).
    Jumanji is not available in the US, it's Jpn only release so far.
    Heavy Metal is not a US only title, it's available in Mexico and South America as well (except Brazil)
    xXx is available in Korea as well.
    Crouching Tiger, Dralion, From Here To Eternity, Punch Drunk Love, Panic Room, Dracula, Mask Of Zorro, Vertical Limit are available in HK.
    Seven Years in Tibet, Bad Boys, The Big Hit, A Knight's Tale, Mask Of Zorro, Anaconda, are available in Mexico and South America (except Brazil).

    Update:
    Added Lots of Korean Titles

    Alex,

    Thanks for the very comprehensive update. I was planning on redoing the list in alphabetical order in almost the same system you show except the countries will also be in alphabetical order (Some of this discussed on AVTalk).

    I think Pal/NTSC seperation is unecessary especially since not all releases on the same system are the same. I will add more complete info on the general region formats eg. "France - Region 2 Pal, French DD2.0 + DD5.1 and English DTS." Do you think it would be OK to put Mexican and all South american releases under one category?

    I will reorder, add more Dutch, French, Korean and South American releases later today.

    English menus, English DTS and English language on packing.

    I´m not sure if the soundtracks are necessary to list. Except for the some Japanese Superbits who doesn´t have DD 5.1 tracks, all Superbits have DTS 5.1 and DD 5.1 tracks. Note that the Italian Superbits always have the DTS track in Italian.

    I think those that do not offer an English DTS track should be ignored (So I wont bother with Italian Releases). Non English additional soundtracks I feel are necessary to list as these take valuable bits from the picture.

    Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (Jpn) is put out by Pony Canyon and not Columbia/Tri-Star. It doesn't need to be listed here, unless you want to add all of the R2J releases with English DTS tracks (eg. Heat, Ronin, etc).
