US vs UK Kong HD-DVD


Established Member
I managed to get hold of a UK hd-dvd drive today and thought i'd give the one i received from SoftUK to my mate as he was desperate to track one down.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned or if anyone has been in a position to compare but the US disc seems much better to me. The US one benefits from the U-Control feature which is a really nice benefit of hd-dvd and also you can create a My Favourite scenes list. Sadly the UK disc has all of it's space 'wasted' on additional languages.:confused:

I think i should've kept my US one..lol:devil:

Anyway, a bit of info for anyone who hasn't got lucky yet.

I have both and see no picture difference. There are feature and audio differences and for an english speaker the US disc is the one to go for. I do see minor difference on Serenity between US sourced and UK sourced discs however.

yes but it could always be because I want to justify the second copy of the disc ;) It is subtle but I think it is there, just a touch 'sharper'.
