As an addition to what has already been said the Arden 3 also places a
greater emphasis on the theatrical history of the plays, although I must
admit to only owning two editions: TNK and H8.  Lois Potters' TNK offers
a wealth of information on the theatrical life of the play, and Gordon
McMullans' H8 is worth getting to read his enlightened approach to the
problems of the play's authorship if for no other reason.

I'm not absolutely positive, but I think Gordon McMullan's Henry VIII,
published earlier this year, is the most recent Arden 3.  According to
the list at the beginning of that volume, here are the Arden 3 volumes
that have been published, with their editors:

Antony and Cleopatra (John Wilders)
Julius Caesar (David Daniell)
King Henry V (T. W. Craik)
King Henry VI Part 1 (Edward Burns)
King Henry VI Part 2 (Ronald Knowles)
King Henry VIII (Gordon McMullan)
King Lear (R. A. Foakes)
Love's Labour's Lost (A. R. Woodhuysen)
The Merry Wives of Windsor (Giorgio Melchiori)
Othello (E. A. J. Honigmann)
The Sonnets (Katherine Duncan-Jones)
The Tempest (Virginia Mason Vaughan and Alden T. Vaughan)
Titus Andronicus (Jonathan Bate)
Troilus and Cressida (David Bevington)
The Two Noble Kinsmen (Lois Potter)

I have all of these and like them.  One of the most notable differences
between Arden 2 and Arden 3 is that Arden 3 has much more on performance
histories.
