I may have some more free time to do this now…
Maybe the studios shot their holiday wads when it came to big name releases last week, because the most notable news on the next-gen front was that not only will the PS3 maybe have a Blu-Ray demo disc to show off the magic of the format for those 31 or 32 of you that will be able to find and buy one when it comes out. To counter this, Microsoft will apparently include King Kong when folks buy their HD-DVD add-on when that comes out in November. Stay tun…d to this space for more details as they’re received.
Not too much on the disc front, although Universal has postponed Hulk indefinitely for reasons unknown, and Lion’s Gate has moved their upcoming Blu-Ray releases back from 10/17 until early next year, for the same thing. Universal made up for the Hulk delay by announcing Miami Vice as a HD/SD combo for 12/5.
Wait a second, there were actual announcements last week! Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails will be releasing a concert film on HD and Blu-Ray, and Sony will finally release Black Hawk Down on 11/14 (as a BD-50, presumably to hold the extras from the outstanding 3 disc SE), along with the Daniel Craig film Layer Cake.
What can I say, that’s about it on my end, told you there wasn’t much to talk about. So until next week high definers, keep your brightness set low and your resolution set high!
