    It seems that the UK edition has DTS track but the US edition has probably few more extras.

    Is the commentary identical?
    What is the difference in extras?

    I could've sworn I saw a limited release specs when it first came out in France -- the casing was a lunchbox containing all the goods.
    What happened to this release -- did it actually get released this way, did the final specs change before the French version was released, was I imagining things? I checked the comparison site from the link above, but it did not show a "lunchbox" version.
    Thanks!

    Don't forget if you opt for the PAL version the soundtrack is sped up by 4%. Whether you notice this is another matter, but it's something to consider.

    Don't forget if you opt for the NTSC version the horizontal resolution is reduced by 20%. Whether you notice this is another matter, but it's something to consider.

    Well, I went for the PAL release. I prefer NTSC, but when Virgin are doing the 'just a commentary and DTS' release in a nice looking box with the soundtrack CD its a bargain.

    And whether you can actually hear this somewhat debatable notion of a 4% increase in speed of sound then the decision is yours! The R2 edition is superb!
