    Arent they planning to do Part 3? so, this is not the Raid Collection if it’s missing Part 3. Shame on you Sony! you bloodsucking bastards!

      Maybe not…Gareth Evans had this to say in a recent interview with Mike Leeder –

      “To be honest I don’t really know. I have an idea and it’s the same idea I’ve had since we were making part 2. Nothing has changed on that front, I just can’t say for sure when I’ll be in the right headspace to do something with it. Whether it was a conscious decision or not, moving back to UK felt like a closing chapter on that franchise – we ended the story pretty neatly (I feel) in part 2. I’m aware there’s an interest for it, and genuinely it is incredibly touching to see people still dropping messages my way asking for it. So never say never, but it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon.”

    Any idea if this is any different than the individually released blu ray disks?
