I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a release in the US or Canada. I think it is unlikely that will happen. I just received my copy today. The DVD does play on my computer but not in my DVD player. I kind of expected that. I haven't tried the Blu-ray but I would expect the same results. The only problem is that I can't play Blu-ray on my computer. I am hoping to someday find the means to be able to do that. I am also enjoying the CD version.
