So what's the deal with this? Is it region free? Was thinking of getting the xbox 360 version, for $100+, no way...did the US release get cancelled? I heard the soundtrack (what looks to be an older arrangement) from no-life radio and was really impressed.
The PS3 version is of course region free. The 360 version is not. I got my copy yesterday and played for about a half hour. It looks fantastic filling the whole 16:9 screen. This mode is called the "New Order" mode. In this option you have the option to have the music be "New Order" which has to me what seems to be an all new soundtrack by Yosuke Yasui. It might be an arrangement but if it is, it is VERY different from the original music. You can also choose the music to be "Original".
In the arcade mode (screen cut off like the DC version) you have the option for "Original" music mode or "Arrange" mode. I havent tried it yet but I believe the "Arrange" music mode is the original music with the added guitar solos that was the exclusive to the DC version. You cannot choose the Arrange mode on the New Order mode.
The LE also comes with a tutorial video DVD. Its region 2 but it worked in my PS3! I didnt know American PS3's could play Region 2 DVDs. The Soundtrack it comes is only the 6 tracks that Yasui re did. Looks like the DC LE version is the only one with the full original, arrange and arranged arranged soundtracks!
