superbit regions

just a quickie,

Does the difference between R1 and the rest still apply to the Superbit disks? ie, R1 is the original, and then the film is filtered down to the other regions.

Good question. Most original R3 discs are actually recoded R1's, with some changes to the sound tracks and subtitles (i.e. Asian one's added).
Seen also R3 Superbit here but haven't bought any nor can I tell if there is any difference. Will have a look on the back cover next time when I go shopping ...

Most R1 Superbit titles are actually coded for regions 1, 3 and 4.

I'm not sure if this was what you were asking though, marc. Most Superbit films are already available in the major regions as non-superbit titles. I wouldn't automatically assume that Superbit versions of these films will eventually appear in these markets, although this may occur over time.

Just had a glance during lunch hour at "The Mask of Zorro" R3 Superbit and it seems to be identical to the R1 release as this has already the Asian subtitles.

Jimmy, I would need to check on that, perhaps I can find this in one of the booklets inside the DVDs I bought. Else I will see what I can gather during the weekend, so don't expect an answer before Monday ...

Sorry for the late reply (actually I didn't say which Monday ;) ), was quite busy as I am preparing to go outstation for a few weeks. Guess it's time to do some "real" work.

Anyhow, none of the booklets I found in my DVDs list the Superbit titles as they are made by one label only. So I had a look in some shops and noticed that most R1 titles are available as R3, too. (I compared what's listed on some R1 sites with those at the shop.)
In fact I assume they release the same titles at the same time.
