    The other two Resident Evil movies are going to be released on BluRay this January 2nd. There will also be a trilogy box set.

    The $59.98 MSRP is a nice price for the box set. That should be around $40 at Amazon.

    Excellent news. I already bought RE2 so I'll probably buy the individual releases unless the boxset costs equal to the cost of two.

    Someone can have a pretty nice zombie marathon in HD now, with special thanks to Anchor Bay.

    This is all the more reason for me to make the plunge into Blu-ray... HD-dvd are falling behind imho.

    the only reason i haven't already taken the plunge is the region coding issue :-/ i've thought about buying 2 players.. one locally and one from the US.. but that's too much hassle. i wonder if any of the existing players can be mod chipped to be region free..

    my original dvd player was R4 and i had to pay an extra $250 to have it mod chipped to R0

    I looked into this recently. At that time NO HD-DVD player nor Blu-Ray player can be modded.

    HD-DVD proponents are quick to jump in and sell you on the idea that HD-DVD is in fact region free (as opposed to Blu-Ray). What they don't tell you is that, again at the time of my checking, there's not a single HD-DVD player that can be made region free for SD content - which is essential, imo.

    ^ True, although one can not count on any Blu-ray distributor remaining region free for the long term. As far as I know Warner is the only company to have offically stated that they will not use region coding. But I'm sure region coding will be circumvent, as will BD+ more than likely.

    The region coding is slightly different this time round as well. Here's the new division lines: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Blu-ray_regions_with_key.png

    It's notable that Japan is now Region 1/A along with America, no longer Region 2 as they were with DVD.
