    I see that Sendit have this down as having been released on the 9th of April and is now "available on order"...but the majority of other retailers don't seem to have it listed. Has anyone managed to pick this up yet and if so, what's the PQ and audio like?

    Cheers

    Jim

    It's in my local Gamestation for £19.99, has been for the last few weeks.

    It's one of my favourite films, but I already have the 2 disc special edition on DVD, so will wait maybe for it to come down (it will have to be 3 for £20 in HMV in a few years time :smashin: )

    There's a review here of the Region A Blu-Ray:

    Seems like picture and audio are better, but nothing amazing, and zero extras.

    Cheers Craigy!

    I guess we'll get hit for the inevitable double-dip at some point, but it's a hard one for me to resist. In fact, i've found it at Bensons World for £13.49...so i think i'm going to go for it.

    I'll hang on to my SD-DVD SE for the extras though. :smashin:

    I got this through yesterday and that HDD review is pretty much spot on. There's a significant enough improvement in picture & audio, it's just a shame about the lack of extras and high price point. That said, i don't think £13.49 is too much fork out to have the best audio & visual presentation of The Usual Suspects! Here's the link to Benson's should anyone fancy a dabble.
