I only started it once and didn't notice anything particular about the opening but I can't judge audio quality at all since my TV speakers are horrible. Someone else who has both versions should try...

As for the 300MB for 25min: It depends on the video codec. You're most likely talking about MPEG-4 (like DivX, x264 etc.) while the in-game movies are MPEG-2 (like DVDs which need about 1GB for 20minutes to look good. And that's not HD yet).

About voice compression: No clue... There was enough space to just let them be and even include the complete english track at full quality...

That begs the question--why *aren't* they using MPEG-4? I assume the PS3 has the processing power to handle it. Indeed, it seems to be an issue on Sony's side, since a cursory web search reveals that the PS3 can be modded to handle MPEG-4 files.
