I've just posted on this very subject here!

http://www.queenzone.com/forums/1289526/days-of-our-lives-dvd-extras.aspx?page=4

Might be worth holding off ordering yet though as which content is on which version doesn't seem fully obvious yet for the Japanese ones.

Cheers

The DVD for sale in the UK/RoW is a one disc affair, whereas the Japanese one comes as a two disc 'Special Edition'  or three disc 'Director's Cut' - see here:

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/search3.html?r=any&exact=&q=days+of+our+lives&order=score&media=dvdonly&step=20

My assumption is that the second disc on the Japanese 2 disc DVD will have ONLY this 40 minutes of bonus footage but still EXCLUDE the extra additional material that is on the UK Blu Ray, but the 3 disc 'Directors Cut' will have both lots of extra stuff across two extra discs. I assume that the Japanese Blu Ray will have everything.

It's possible that we could end up with the following;

UK/RoW DVD - 1 disc
UK/RoW Blu Ray - 1 disc with extra bonus footage
Japan DVD - 2 discs; same as UK DVD but with extra disc just for the 40 mins (Budokan etc) (ie EXCLUDING the UK Blu Ray extras)
Japan DVD - 3 discs; same as UK Blu Ray and also with extra disc of 40 mins (Budokan etc)
Japan Blu Ray - 1 disc - same as UK Blu Ray/Japan 3 disc DVD version

Until I see a full spec I won't be ordering the UK Blu Ray if the Japanese one has 40 mins more rare content.

If the 3 disc Japan DVD has the extra content from the UK Blu Ray, it begs the question as to why the UK DVD can't have this too?

Does any of that makes sense?!!?

============================

Well I found that subjective...

We know for ages that the song Killer Queen and Lap of the Gods is around on video. It would have been nice to put one or two video's we haven't seen from thta Budokan show on this new DVD

Same goes for Japan 1982. We have seen those videos on a official VHS and Milton Keynes Bonus DVD. So apparently QP hasn't got/found the master tape, So on this Japan DVD we will find a copy of a laserdics.

At the exhibition the Japan footage was silent. I can only assume that the audio is missing which is a real shame as the picture quality was excellent.

I wonder why this has been cancelled? The dvd is not scheduled for release in Japan until a month after the UK. Also watch out as the only Blu ray available to order from Japan seems to be just the international one on import?!?

I hope it was cancelled because it was a redundant release, but it's more likely that the idea is to get everybody buying the international release, and then suckering the fans with the Japanese exclusive for a second purchase.

Does anyone knows if the Japan version will have English subtitles? (Italian subtitles would be too much but at least have English subtitles would be something).

I contacted the dutch office of Universal and they told me they have no idea what their colleagues in Japan are up to. Does anyone know whether the Japanese blu-ray is actually gonna be released, region coded and internationally available? I have no intention of buying this release multiple times (like I already did with so many Queen albums and videos/dvd's) so I'm more than willing to wait for another month, if that means I get the most complete release.
It also amazes me that neither Queenonline or Universal themselves can answer questions like these.

It's been confirmed on another thread that the extra 40 mins or so in Japan is on DVD two disc edition only, NOT Blu Ray. The only Blu Ray in Japan is the international version on import only. That sucks.

Be aware though that the additional 40 mins or so confirmed by GT is on the two disc Version of the Japanese DVD, and NOT on any Blu Ray.
