Toshiba has left the fight and Sony wins!

Can't wait to see Paramount and Universal start announcing Blu-Ray release dates for their previous releases. I really want Transformers, Children of Men, and Eastern Prosmises.


I think this is the type of development that Apple's been waiting for before adding BTO options for Hi-Def media in their machines.

How long do you think it will be before a Universal and Paramount announcement?

It can only be a matter of days / hours!!! :rolleyes:

I've put Transformers on Blu-Ray on my Christmas List ;)

They already announced that they are releasing Blu-Ray titles. Not sure which ones they are releasing first though. Dreamworks hasn't announced that they are going to Blu-Ray.

Well considering that Dreamworks is owned by Paramount, it is a foregone conclusion that they are going to Blu-Ray.

The sad thing is, I saw about 20 HD-DVD ads this weekend on TV. I wonder how many people were suckered in by them.

I really hope that they can act quickly and get some of their previously released titles re-authored. I'm sure this won't effect the timeframe for new and catalog releases (not much if any).
