I wonder what audio format it will be released with? Your link just says dolby. Hopefully it will be TrueHD and not DD+ like the HD-DVD version. Nothing wrong with DD+ but I find TrueHD and DTS HD sounds much better.

On this two disc special edition, video will be presented in 2.35:1 1080p AVC and be accompanied by both a 5.1 PCM and 5.1 Dolby TrueHD lossless soundtracks.

Extras for the release are massive, and include:

Cool thanks.:slight_smile: Looks like a lot more extra features than the HD version. More space I guess.

The extras are on DVD, unless this release is different than the HD-DVD. So the available space would be the same on disc 2. I’d hope that this release uses a better transfer than the HD-DVD, but I doubt it. PQ is average on the HD-DVD.

Don’t take this wrong but you guys must be younger than i thought to be excited about a Transformers movie…ducks and runs

You made me me go look.:stuck_out_tongue: Yep you are right just the easter eggs are new I guess. I read something a while ago about movie producers looking at using less grain in new movies. It just doesn’t look good on HD and should make the PQ better.

Bob. Just interested in the difference between HD and BD.

Not that young :slight_smile:

My tastes are extremely vast, so you’ll have a tough time trying to hit the nail on the head. I’ll never let the kid in me disappear.

[/B]I’ll guess we will just have to wait a see

Most of those Easter Eggs can be found on the HD-DVD version. Not really worried about the other extras so I will stick with my good 'ol HD-DVD release. :wink:

I own and watched the HD DVD version of Transformers but I’m excited to have it in blu-ray. Also Iron Man, can’t wait for it to be released in a few months. :bow:
