Dizzy, considered getting my DVD player "fixed" but it's too risky even thru the Laserdisken approved fiddlers. No room or wish for a 2nd grade R1 player but a good idea I did consider at some point. Guess I'll have to wait for the uncut released in R2 (if ever!)
Judging from the trailer it looks very Amigaish which doesn't make any sense compared with the release date.
Akira, while the C64 indeed did have a fixed pallette of 16 colours, as you probably know it was actually possible to obtain more than the 16 colours, but obviously the resolution and colours here are way, way beyond C64 capabilities.
