I want to get this and trying to find the best version. It boils down to either the 2006 US release or the 2006 Australian release, since both versions have a 110% uncut Japanese release. Is that correct?

Now upon research I am seeing conflicting reports on the AR of these releases.

For the 2006 US release amazon reports it as 1.33:1

http://www.amazon.com/Street-Fighter-II-Animated-Movie/dp/B000FA57T4/ref=sr_1_4?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1333091787&sr=1-4

but other sites report it as a non-anamorphic 1.85:1

http://www.dvdreview.com/reviews/pages/2373.shtml

I'm assuming the latter is true about it?

Which brings me to the Australian release: http://www.ezydvd.com.au/DVD/street-fighter-ii-movie/dp/789773

According to that page it's anamorphic. But it lists the AR as 1.78:1. Assuming 1.85:1 is the AR that means the Australian release is cropped? Am I right here?

And what of the UK version in terms of AR and anamorphic? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Street-Fighter-The-Animated-Movie/dp/B000M06GMY/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1333093980&sr=1-1

The Australian and UK versions would also be PAL and have higher pitched voices though right? I'd assume if you want the best version, and the U.S. one is indeed widescreen, that you should go with that one.

You mean cause of the pal speed up?

But if the UK/AU versions are anamorphic AND the same AR as the US version, I'd say that makes it better. No?

If you can handle the PAL speed up. Some people can (like myself), others get driven mad by it.

Could be just me but I don't even notice the pal speed up.

That being said, anyone know the AR of the pal versions? Is it OAR or a cropped Widescreen?

hmmm....according to this the UK release isn't anamorphic: http://www.dvdoutsider.co.uk/dvd/reviews/s/streetfighter2.html

So the only question that remains, what is the AR of the Australian release. If it's cropped, the US is best. If it's not, the Australian is best.

No one seems to be able to tell me if the AU release is cropped or OAR. So I just went ahead and ordered a "like new" copy of the US release for 9.76 shipped from half.com. Says it has the disc, case, and artwork. At the very least it's cheaper than the AU release.

Apparently this is going to be included on the Street Fighter Anniversary Collectors box, and on bluray:

http://www.amazon.com/Street-Fighter-Anniversary-Collectors-Xbox-360/dp/B0085O6XHC/ref=xs_gb_20_left-3_1_B0085O6XHC?pf_rd_p=451293501&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=20&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1X092DY1NEX2CKCZJWD2

Of course, the list price for it is $149.99, but it does come with a lot of stuff.

What in blazes is all that? I guess there will be a PS3 version and Xbox360 version.

Should be noted we don't know if SF2 animated will be uncensored since this is rated T.
