Well, except for the fact that not every Superbit has looked or sounded as good as one would think under that banner. In fact, there are many 2 disc SE titles that beat many Superbit titles.

Of course, it would be unlikely this time, seeing as they're being put out at the same time...

I'll probably wait for a review on SE vs SB first...

But then the SE at BB has a bonus disc with the "VH1 Goes Inside Spider-Man" feature. Is this feature any good?

The optimal decision would be to get either the Gift Set or 2-Disc AND the Superbit. The extras on the Special Edition are truly special and deserved to be watched.

I pre-ordered the Superbit. As others have mentioned, there will be a ton of used copies of the 2-Disc available for re-sale for close to nothing in a short period of time. I'll probably pick one of these copies up for the supplemental material. If one is willing to wait, I'm sure the price of the Spider-man 2 Gift Set will likely come done in price as well. The original Spider-man Gift Set came down in price in short order and can now be purchased for only $19.99 at Best Buy. Then there is the rumored Spider-man 2 2.5 version lurking on the horizon. I'm sure I'll be happy with my Superbit with it's optimal transfer and DTS until I decide on my options related to the other releases.

Superbits do not contain extras, except for the Superbit of the original Spider-Man, it had a 1.0 Commentary with Tobey Maguire and J.K. Simmons.

The sound on the 2-Disc was pretty good, so I'll probably pass on the Superbit.

I thought the 2.5 was scheduled for next year

If not, then I'll probably pick up the SE

Superbit! The only extras I'll miss are the commentaries.
