Hellboy II: The Golden Army (DVD or BLU??)

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

I can not tell from the reviews and/or from product listings at a number of different sites..

But does the 3-Disc SE DVD have any Features not on the Blu-Ray Release??

OK it seems that the only thing missing from the 'BluRay' release is:
(A) Digital Copy Version of movie?
(B) DVD-Rom version of the screenplay on a third disc

Missing from the DVD is:
(A) U Control feature

When I clicked the thread title I expected to read about someone wondering whether or not the Blu-ray version is really worth the extra cost over the DVD.

Thankfully I was wrong. This title screams for Blu-ray!

It may scream for 'Blu' but I have the first release in DVD and I am only currently purchasing 'Blu' version of a disc/movie set if:
The 'DVD' version does not have features that are missing on the 'Blu'
or
IF the 'Blu' version does not have some super special feature that the DVD version does not have.
And don't go there drooling about how the sound/picture are so much better on 'Blu', as I am a HD-DVD owner and of the 'Blu' versions of the 'SAME MOVIE' that I have on HD-DVD.. the HD-DVD version in all cases todate have a much better playback on my system than the 'Blu' version.. and what really upsets me is I have purchased a few 'Blu' ""DOUBLE DIPS"" of DVD versions and I hate to say it but the DVD versions up converted had a better image!!

After doing some more 'net' searches it seems that the 'BluRay' and the '3-Disc-DVD' have all the same features with the 'BluRay' version along with the 'U-Control' and having the extra features of the 'BD-Live'.
It seems that most review copies of the 'BluRay' only shipped out disc one while the retail copy will have two disc's BluRay+DVD(which has the digital copy+screen play)
The BluRay holds all the info from the first two DVD's of the '3-Disc-DVD'

Knowing this I guess I will go ahead and purchase the 'BluRay' Copy for now.
