    DVD, yes, but not with blu-ray. There is no PAL in hi-def. However, if there are standard definition PAL features on the blu-ray, you might run into a problem.

    I think a lot of newer HD TVs are PAL compatible anyway. All three of my TVs play PAL discs.

    They really want 39EUR for Trick or Treat? Sounds a bit much.

    Now they do. It was much cheaper very recently... until the price rose again. My pre-order is locked in at nearly half that price.

    I cancelled my pre-order for cover B, so now there is one back in stock if anyone wants it.

    Still got cover A locked in, even though it is most likely going to be region locked.

    Anyone get a shipping confirmation on Trick or Treat yet? Tomorrow is the release date & I've heard nothing yet from Amazon Germany.

    Is it now impossible to purchase any version of Trick or Treat through normal means, aka Amazon Germany?

    It looks like the Cover A release date now shows 3/1 on Amazon DE.

    The Cover B still shows 2/28, but may have just not been updated yet. That's the one I have on pre-order, so I'll post an update here if it changes also.

    NSM Records haven't mentioned anything else about the release on their Facebook page recently, which is a little odd.

    Edit: Hmm, now they switched it back to 2/28 for Cover A. Weird!

    I received mine yesterday from Amazon UK...

    The HD transfer simply looks great, vivid colors and tons of fine detail. It's a huge leap over the old DVD.

    The transfer is AVC MPEG-4 encoded with a respectable bitrate, and the Audio is 24-bit lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and it also sounds excellent.

    The only extra feature is the old Director's commentary, so I'll of course hang on to the old R1 DVD for the other features.

    I don't know the German/Austrian Blu-ray compares, but I can't see it beating the UK's transfer. That release also only offers the English audio in lossy 2.0. It offers some more bonus features...but nothing that wasn't on the old DVD release.
