So in essence the specs and extras are EXACTLY the same but only the Blu-ray has the HD materials.

This release has been a long time coming - an incredible amount of work has gone into this at Arrow and I know that Fran and Alex have poured their souls into this effort.

Oh and just to test how far down you've all read - the DVD will be region free and the BD - All Regions

Plus - one more thing - there's one more treat yet to be announced. We want to do this as far and wide as we can so if you're running a forum or site and want to get the tip off PM me with the details of your site and your contact e-mail and we'll go global with it!

Arrow Video's Limited Edition release of Battle Royale is released on both Blu Ray and DVD - both out 29th November 2010.

This is about as exciting as press releases can get! I've already pre-ordered with Amazon.

Although don't you want the release date in here so it can be comprehensive?

Very excited about this one!
