    My bad. I even did the search and all. I can be kind of thick headed sometimes.

    just get the Korean R3 disc. That's probably the best bang for the buck

    I have the Korean R0 one, I have seen the Tartan R0 NTSC one and I don't think it's any better or worse picture quality wise. The special features on the Korean one are not in english, nor do they have english subs. A minor issue I think.

    I'm a dumbass. I have the Region 0 Korean, not the R3.:rolleyes: I plan on getting the Tin soon. Is it limited in any way? I'd like to know because there's a bunch of other stuff I want and if this isn't limited than I can pull it down a couple spots on my want list.

    on the topic of BR, is anyone else collecting the graphic novels? I really reccomend them if youre a BR fan. Because its print you get a deeper look into the characters pasts, and their motives during the game. Its really nicely (and often very graphically) illustrated by the same artist that did Apocalypse Zero.

    So, I finally saw this last night, and really, really, really loved it. I am wanting my own copy now, and am confused as to what the best version is, seeing as there seems to be a million of them. Has a great version come down since 2003, or does the information in here hold? Is there a rumored R1 47 disc special edition? Help.

    Not being region free, I hope that someone (BU, Tokyo Shock, Synapse etc.) gets a chance to release suped up versions of both BR and BR2. I actually wouldn't be surprised if Tartan releases them over here sometime soon.

    I just posted this in the other Battle Royale thread but I think it bears repeating:

    I would stay away from the Tartan extended cut if I were you. Tartan fucked up the NTSC-to-PAL conversion and every second and a half or so the picture "stutters" just a little. To most people it isn't even noticeable but lucky me bought the tin and for me its unwatchable.

    See I thought about buying that one, but thanks to the site posted above I caught wind of that bull honkey.

    Yes, so stay away from the Tartan PAL SE of Battle Royale!

    That is a really good dvd. It has a very good transfer, good subs, and it's the theatrical cut which is way better imho.

    I just got done watching it and OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!


    THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I really loved it. It reminded me of Aliens where you get strapped in and for the rest of the movie is the ride of your life. I was just sad to see my girl Go Go not make it.

    I'm so glad I bought this movie.
