So do both versions come with the soundtrack? The link makes it sound like only the 5 disc version does, but fails to say what is on the 4th disc, and the picture in both of them shows the soundtrack as the 4th disc.

I'd really like to have seen them release the commentary tracks as mp3s or something. The set looks awesome, but I still can't decide if I want to forego three very good sounding commentary tracks. Any suggestions?

Tough call...not exactly sure of how much of an improvement the DTS track is for this release and personally i'd not want to sacrifice the three commentary tracks on the R1 which if you generally like commentaries are excellent listens.
Having said that as the other discs are the same as the R1 there is still a multitude of background and additional information and coupled with a substantially better cover art doesn't make it an easy choice at all.

If you had to 'pin' me to an answer though i'd say stick with the R1 and pick up the inevitable R1 'Superbit' if the DTS is a substantial improvement.

The wild card for me is the inclusion of the soundtrack. I had considered getting it seperately, but I wouldn't pay $18.99 for it.

Still can't decide....

This is a smidge cheaper and free shipping if you order $40.

I wish I hadn't bought the R1 version recently or this would be a no-brainer...

No limit yesasia shipping?

I thought there was a $39 minimum for free shipping at yesasia.com It used to be $49 but they lowered it to $39 for the US.

Nope...check out the site.

It even says on the Black Hawk Down page that "this title is eligible for free shipping."

Yes it is eligible for free shipping.
But please go and read see detail.
Just like people said, there is minimum purchase. It used be $49 and now it is $39.
I hope this would help.

Hmm...my mistake then.

Why would they say that it's eligible for free shipping when it doesn't meet the requirement???

Regardless...i can't justify buying this movie a third time. I haven't even gotten around to watching the other one yet. I LOVE DTS...but it can wait.

It's like Amazon...some items are eligible for free shipping...and some ain't.

It's just letting you know that it could be shipped free [if the minimum $$$ is met...]

[hijack]

does anyone know of any other r3 disc worth getting to meet the $39 minimum..?
