    From DIgital Bits:

    street date 6/3, SRP $29.98

    The 2-disc set will come in a special 3D metal box package. The film itself has apparently been mastered from a brand-new 1080p, 24sf high-definition digital transfer, with frame-by-frame restoration done to ensure the best possible image quality. Naturally, it'll be presented in anamorphic widescreen on DVD, and is THX-certified. Audio will be available in Dolby Dolby 5.1 Surround EX and there will be a Dolby Headphone option included as well. Note that the film will be the 16-minute-longer special edition version.

    The new extras were once again produced by Van Ling, as they were for the previous T2: Ultimate Edition DVD. These will include an all-new audio commentary track with James Cameron and William Wisher, an "extreme interactive mode" with with "graphic commentary" and rare behind-the-scenes footage, the all-new No Feat But What We Make documentary (on the role of T2 in the evolution of digital effects and modern filmmaking), the T2: On the Set retrospective montage (featuring rare production footage), the interactive Infiltration Unit Simulator and T2 FX Studio (which lets you morph your imported images into a T-1000 or a T-800 Terminator and gives you background on the FX technology, all via DVD-ROM) and the interactive Skynet Combat Chassis Designer game (which lets you build your own unique robots and test them on a simulated obstacle course).

    Presumably edge enhancement isn't a problem on bog standard 28" and 32" televisions :confused:

    Yes it is. I can spot EE on my previous 28" Widescreen- noticeable on some of the older Bond films, and T2, Enemy of the State, Dusk Till Dawn.

    Looks worse on a bigger screen, yuk.

    Does that really matter? DTS isnt the be all and end all you know!

    I´m afraid it is a problem and can be very annoying even on 28/32" TV´s. I bet it drives projector owners round the twist.

    Thats not the point the last version had the DTS sound and this claims to be the extreme version so where is all the bells and whistles which surely must include DTS sound

    Why? DTS is only a big deal if you're a sucker for hype! They've dumped a sound format of questionable merit, sounds pretty extreme to me :D Don't panic, doubtless the Ultimate Extreme Edition will have DTS dropped back in once they run out of filler. Might have to toss a coin over the tea lady commentary mind ;)

    I'd be interested to see how much of an improvement the new 'digitally remastered' video is :rolleyes:

    I checked the bitrate of my R2 set and its 10mb/s. Constantly.

    It doesn't drop once below that mark.

    Ok firstly that is probably higher than most superbit titles but n/m;)

    Secondly the picture quality is perfect...do we really need to see a new version? And how many people will notice? How many will care?

    I know I certainly won't and don't and I've no intention of rebuying this again :rolleyes:

    I think it seems like a nice box. I will probably buy it. DTS isn't everything.

    DTS isnt everything, but it can hardly claim to be the biggest best release to date if it isnt included!

    Personally; i love the DTS soundtrack on T2 ultimate edition and would be pretty gutted if this were missing on the new realese;
    The picture quality on my tosh telly in progresive scan is good at times, but it is also very grainy something i hope wont be as bad on the new version.
