Versus was a super low budget movie... I doubt it could look much better

Ya, but even still. I wouldn't expect too much out of it on Blu. Since it is a low budget film.

Has anyone confirmed whether this is the Ultimate Versus or just the regular cut?

If I don't get Ichi The Killer soon, I won't be responsible for my actions.

I was also looking forward to this release.

Maybe Amazon will drop the price on Versus Blu-ray to $13 like they did with Ichi the Killer Blu-ray...

Not looking forward to this one but I'll root for its release as I'm hoping for Crows Episode 0 on BD someday.

Ultimate Versus was the big "restoration." I think they did what they could, that's why the new scenes are of slightly better quality.

...and like everyone else I'm also waiting on Ichi the Killer. They can take all the time they need if they put out the definitive version of the movie. I'm not going to hold my breath though.

the new scenes are in better quality because they refilmed those a long time after the regular cut of the movie came out.They didnīt remaster the actul versus though,it looked horrible on this dvd.
The austrian Versus has a better picture quality than this but unfortuately itīs not the extended cut.

Well that was exactly my point. I believe they did try to touch up the old footage so the transitions wouldn't be so jarring. I have the original Japanese R2 of Versus and the R1 Ultimate Steelbook, the R1 Ultimate Versus looks much better than how it did originally (I prefer the original cut though)

I'm going to wait and hear how the Versus Blu-ray turns out before buying it... I don't own a decent copy of Ichi the Killer so it doesn't feel like a real risk.

I couldn't care less about Ichi, but I was really looking forward to this. Figures they would wait less than one week before it was supposed to be released to announce it's delayed.
Rob Zombie's Halloween 2: Proof that any steaming pile can have fans, no matter how horrible it is.

I blind-buy ALOT. Don't bother trying to call me out on something in my collection when I dislike a movie kthx! :)

iīm really anxious to read a good review of the upcoming Versus blu ray.I really doubt that they will make this movie look better tha the dvd.
And if thatīs the case i will not buy it.
The jp. DTS-ES Discrete Audio Track is pretty good onthe steelbook edition.
I also own the japanese Drectorīs Cut DVD,but i rebought the movie because it didnīt have english subtitles.
