The dub has grown on me, actually. The only things that still bug me are Mena Suvari, some of Rachael Leigh Cook's delivery, and that the guy portraying Yazoo sounds like an airhead. Although that last one isn't that he sounded like a bad actor, it's just I didn't care for that choice of delivery.

Anyoo, both the English and Japanese tracks are 5.1 and both sound amazing.

BTW, for you Wal-Mart shoppers, I read that Wal-Mart has a two pack that bundles Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children with Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Unfortunately the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within DVD that is included is only the one disc version.

I keep reading how the FF dvd is sold out everywhere.
I think Sony underestimated the demand because of all the bootlegs, and how
it was the most bit-torrented thing ever.
Goes to show that studios are dead wrong about how bootlegs hurt the sales of
their product.

Went to my local BB yesterday and they only had FFVII in the Sci-Fi section, none in the New Release section. Anyway, they had tags stating "2 for $25 with the purchase of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Final Fantasy: Spirits Within (single disc)". But this is where it gets funny. Two BB employees and a manager walked into the sci-fi section and they were talking about this so-called deal. BB employee #1 asked #2 if he had seen anyone take them up on this specific deal. Of course he responded with a "No". Then #2 turned around to the manager and told him that the only way they were going to be able to get rid of these (FF: Spirits Within) is by bundling them with FFVII! So they immediately removed HALF of the floor inventory!

On a side note, FFVII was selling pretty well.

That is the opposite of correct.

Well not THE most, but among one of the most anyways.
I don't see how that discounts my point, or what point you're trying to make.

I think you will find that the vast majority of people who were willing to go through the trouble of Bittorrenting a Japanese-made CGI film which is entirely in Japanese and then hunt up decent fan-made subtitles to go with it are the kinds of people who were going to buy it when it came out in North America anyways. They just didn't want to wait what ultimately turned out to be 8 months for Square to get off their lazy butts and release the NA version.

Got mine Wednesday at BB; they had tons; also, they had a sign on the front door saying it was in stock, so I assume they may have sold out of their Tuesday supply, but must have gotten in more on Wednesday, and wanted to broadcast that they had it back in.

Went to a BB and CC today, neither had it. Went to a different BB on Tuesday afternoon and they were out too. Oh sure, if you want 50 copies of Kong or Aeon Flux, they have it. What the heck went wrong?

Any more opinions on the Gamestop Bonus disc? My OCD is bugging me to get it, but I'll pass if it's really fluffy.

My local WM was also sold out. I had the chance to buy the 2 Pack but I wasn't too crazy about FF SW. I came back the next night with an ad in hand for a price match and they were sold out of both the single release and the 2 pack.

I just got it yesterday and watched the beginning and I must say that this is by far the best CG animation I have ever seen. It was borderline real sometimes.

I hope that this pushes Square to remake FF7. There are many out there(like me) who started to play FF7 but never finished it. I would love to play it again with next gen grafx.

All the BB in the Portland,OR area sold out of FFVII when I was in the area on Wednesday. I took a raincheck instead.

I, like a lot of you, had a hard time finding this. I went to BB, CC, Target, Fry's and K-Mart---all sold out (yes, even Fry's!). Luckily, my local Walmart puts stashes of their new releases on the opposite side of the entrance to the electronics Dept. If you didn't know, you wouldn't find them. So, due to that, they had about 15 left down the bottom right corner, hidden.

Well finaly went out to buy it. Of course BB sold out. So I just walked over to Walmart (same plaza) and they had tons there for $14.97 so I bought it there. Not time to watch it.
