    while £6 for a new dvd is great i will wait for the region 2 version due in december because as it is a paramount release their canadian releases have bilingual covers on them and i carnt stand all that french writing all over the cover. would rather wait a few weeks and get the r2 one assuming the specs are the same of course.

    it wont be as cheap i know, but no french writing

    I'm just concerned because the Canadian version of Running man lost its DTS soundtrack in favour of a French Dolby Digital 5.1.

    So does anybody know if the Canadian version will lose its DTS soundtrack?

    Quote from thedigitalbits.....

    "Anyway, here's the good news - we've finally got an official street date for Paramount's 2-disc Top Gun: Special Collector's Edition. The title had originally been expected in November, but it's now officially set to hit store shelves on 12/14. By the way, we hear the DTS soundtrack on the disc is to die for."

    it's a shame because it doesn't say officially if the Canadian version will have DTS. I'm beginning to wonder if I should cancel my DVD soon order?

    Im probably going to cancel my preorder from dvdsoon and order (on release) from the mighty cd-wow. I don't want to take any risks at all on this. Besides one of the advantages of preordering from dvdsoon is the ability to cancel open orders. Can get it for £7.99 from cdwow.
