HDR has confirmed a date for The Dark Knight on Blu-ray, a title that could actually move additional PS3s this holiday season.
I'm A Stupid Xbot, I'm missing the great movies on bluray.
I feel bad for you. If you think you were so stupid to get a xbox why don't you just sell it and get a PS3? Don't get depressed about it. hehehe Just relax man. When you get a PS3 you will be able to do all those things you cant do on the 360. (: hehe
Before December 9th buy a PS3;) Then you can change your name to - 'Im-A-Intelligent-PS3-Owner'!! ! ;-D Blu-ray is SEXY!!! ;-P
some people DO only care about gaming and find the 360 to be enough for them. Surprise Surprise some of them have NO HATE for Sony or the PS3. I wouldn't call these people "stupid xbots". NOW the ones that come on here and do nothing BUT bash everything sony and playstation. Those cretons deserve all the flaming they get.
Dark Knight was definitely one of the best movies of the year (if you can definitely see it in imax) its going to look great on blu-ray. 1080p and full surround here i come. i feel a little bad for people with no kind of blu-ray player there really missing out.
Will be buying day one. Will also be my first Blu-Ray purchase ever. I usually only rent Blu-Rays because the prices are so high for brand new movies. I know you can get them cheap online, but I haven't had the motivation to pick any up yet.
As long as you can check your "reality" at the door. Not very "realistic" but a lot of action and pretty funny as well.
the dark night will sell like frigging CRACK especially during the holiday season, im even gunna but it on blu-ray and i dont even have a HDTV! lollol but i am getting one soon.
Although December 9th seems soooo far away! I guess a few more cinema viewings will be needed!! Here's hoping for a Director's Cut of The Dark Knight on Blu-Ray, similar to the early Harry Potter releases by Warner that added unseen footage into the movie. I'd love to see a little blood, especially from the unseen deaths of certain people at the hands of The Joker. December 9th can't come any quicker!!
This movie is great. I gotta get it on day one also.
Joker made the movie amazing. I'll be picking this and Iron man on Blu-ray. :)
Picked up Batman Begins on Bluray at Blockbuster for $19.99 (brand new). The DVD version was $14.99. Anyway...this will be a day one purchase as well. Bale has ruined superhero movies for me. Not because he sucks, far from it, but because he could play damn near everyone...but he doesn't! Spiderman, Wolverine, Superman, Hulk, Punisher, and on and on...
I picked up Batman Begins Blu-ray on amazon for $18, it was that pre-order special, that movie is awesome but compared to Dark Knight it seems mediocre
Best movie I've seen this year BY FAR! R.I.P. Heath Ledger. :(
Yea, heath ledger MADE that movie. Whoever plays the villain in the next batman film will have a tough act to follow.
HD DVD !!!
Because i burn't half of HD-DVDs Face off and he went mad!!!
because this --------> http://www.youtube.com/watc... <-----1:36 XD
PS3/The Dark Knight bundle. I want it!
and after further thinking about it i think it would be a great idea if they could somehow gets rights for a early 2 weeks release only with bundles. I wouldn't buy it because i have 2 but I think you should be in marketing because that would sell PS3 like nobodies business to mothers and girlfriends/wives alike.
Two months ago, I wished to see PS3/Transformers bundle, But after waching TDK I changed my mind. I got my PS3 in May '07 and I'll get a new one if the TDK bundle comes to life. Why would I buy it again ? 'cause I bought AMIGA 500/Batman bundle 19 years ago ( I was 10 years old ) and I want to do it again this time with Playstation 3.
To my collection Got the matrix triology on pre order too
day one i didnt even see this movie because im waiting on the blueray! Yea my set up is pimp and my fridge is within feet!
oh yeah. this is going to be sweet
this is going to SELL!!!!
Seeing as this movie is doing so well in theaters....it is sure to move PS3 when the Blu-ray is released. Hopefully in time for Xmas as the article states.
That's too far away, I was hoping for a November release :(
4 weeks extra is THAT far off?
I know. I remember when it was at least a year before a good movie came to video. Be lucky we dont have to wait that long
2far away would be 2009! atleast its around the holidays! I wonder if ppl will buy a PS3 to get this movie on blueray? Maybe?
I will definitely pick it up. That movie was awesome.
We got best of both worlds.. the games and now the hi def movies.. its good to own a PS3.. Best electronic hardware i ever bought.. I just picked up Point break and the lost boys on blu ray the other day.. 2 good classics.. I will be picking this movie up too..
Transformers, IronMan, and now Dark Knight.. 3 of my fav movies all in HD.. Watched on my Ps3.. On my HD Tv.. YAY
theres a transformers bluray???
Comes out the Sep 2nd I believe.. Only couple weeks away..
sweeet.... i have transformers on hd dvd still in packaging.. for nostalgia
yeah... i can see this movie selling a lot of blu-rays.. and if Hulk and Iron get on blu-ray this year.... then I could see a big jump in sales from PS3s. i gotta hand it to Sony, IMO, yes they forced blu-ray on the loyal playstation fans and thus has resulted in the ps3 being in 3rd place and a steep price preventing it from ever reaching crazy sales like PS1 and PS2 thanks to blu-ray!!....... or, i could be wrong, and maybe in a couple of years when the ps3 gets down to $199 and hdtv's are a lot cheaper, maybe they will get that huge spike in sales... THANKS to blu-ray!!
I'm sorry...but your comment made little sense. It seems as if you were praising the PS3...but then again you were kind of insulting it. You should make it much clearer.
PS3 has Blu-ray, the best format available. PlayStation fans love how PS3 games look better than the competition. Blu-ray movies are unmatched in quality and sound. DVD 9 has already made 360 third place in Japan/Asia and Europe after a year long headstart. The xbox 1 + 360 + 720 combined sales won't outsell either the PS1 total or Ps2 total sales individually. And I even think those combined sales won't outsell the PS3 total when it's all said and done. Yeah, thanks to Blu-ray. It took Ps1 2 full years to sell just 10 million worldwide so just keep that in mind. :) Anyway, this movie is awesome and will be a huge seller this holiday. :)
thats exactly what some people were saying back in early PS2 times and now look at where the PS2 is now. You answered your own question. Yes Blu ray is the future of High def and the prices will tumble in a couple of months. The mainstream is entering the Hidef era and Blu is the physical medium for it. Sony always look at the long term when they develop their console. I for one and i am sure the majority of PS fans that bought a PS3 at launch are very staisfied with their purchase as we are already benefiting big time from Sony's forseight. I mean. Every time i look at my PS3 i feel happy not just because i am able to play games that i love but also the fact i can watch Blu ray on it which is a very, very big bonus. The same feeling that i had when i got my PS2 with the ability to play DVD's back in the days.
I was stating my opinion (IMO).... duh! On one hand it sucks thats PS3 is so expensive and out of reach to the mass market, as in the MILLIONS of playstation fans that supported PS1 and PS2 and are buying the cheaper Wii and Xbox 360 to play games... thus the reason it is in THIRD place WORLDWIDE. on the other hand "maybe" in a couple of years when the PS3 drops down in price it might give PS3 a big boost... now of course thats a big MAYBE... because in a couple of years the price of all blu-ray players will have come down, digital downloads in HD will become more mainstream, and the next gen consoles will be out. I'm glad to see so many ps3 owners are happy with their system, and i'm happy with my 360. If I got the ps3 it would be for the blu-ray, where as die-hard playstation fans such as JUUKEN have already accepted defeat and is saving her little pennies to buy a Xbox 360.... for the GAMES.
How exactly did I admit defeat etowone? I'm only getting a 360 for Ninja Gaiden 2 and a few rpg's. If the PS3 had those games, I wouldn't need a 360. The PS3 is a gaming console as well so please do keep that in mind. And your comment *still* didn't make any sense whatsoever. :)
how did you admit defeat? you ask? are you serious!??! you... one of the biggest ps3 fans on this site, always bashing anything related to Xbox and MS and screaming how great the ps3 is to anyone that would listen... you even went as far to write in your bio that you would never buy a Xbox 360!! haha BUT.. after E3...NOW your singing a different tune... whether you buy the 360 for 1 or 10 games, your still going to buy it!!!! going against everything you've been preaching, you have betrayed all your little sony loyalist that have followed you and looked up to you because have succumbed to the will of the "evil" MS corp hahahahahaha... by the way... you missed out on the dell.com deal they had last week for the 360elite.. got mine two days ago!! $299 for 360elite with two games and two faceplates with free shipping!! later :) oh and i'm sorry if my comments still make no sense to you, that must be that Sony brainwashing effect that still lingers in the back on your mind. But it's obviously wearing off......
I also said that I don't hate everything 360 related. I didn't bash NG2 when my fellow PS3 comrades were doing it. I didn't bash Infinite Undiscovery or none of the rpg's coming for the 360. I have my reasons why I'm getting a 360. I wasn't going to get one because I was sure that NG2 was coming to the PS3 but it probably won't happen so I'm getting a 360 for it. I said that's the *only* reason why I'm getting a 360. The fact that it's my secondary console means that I still hold the PS3 in the highest regards. And you bash every single thing PS3 related as well. You can never come out and say 'well this is good for PS3 owners'. You always have a spin in your comments so don't accuse me of doing the things that you do on a daily basis. I may be very critical of Microsoft but that's only because they need to shape up and stop underestimating Sony. Furthermore, you've seen me continuously defend the PS3 on numerous occasions because it's a damn good system. I said that just because I'm getting a 360, doesn't mean that I have to kiss Microsoft's asses. I don't see where you get this whole idea of *betrayal* from. Get over yourself. If the 360 has so many games, then why aren't you playing one? And you're pretty ignorant. I said I was getting a 360 *before* E3. Ninja Gaiden 2 came out before E3, which means you have no basic skills regarding comprehension.
what the heck dose that suppose to mean?. You are sounding like a fanboy. So if i bought a x360 later on this year when its more reliable i would also admit defeat?. Don't you think that that logic is kinda stupid?. The PS3 is in 3rd place because it came out one year after the x360 had a 10 million lead. A cheaper price would have made the PS3 catch up faster but it would made the PS3 suffer in the long run. If the PS3 launched together with the x360 at 600 USD. The PS3 would be in 2nd place already.
i'm actually at work right now.. bored but now laughing at your response. i think we went over this the other day...remember? "people change" first you said you were going to buy one, then you swore you would never buy one, and now your back to saying your going to buy one. on a site like this, as a gamer I have to defend the 360 because this site is over run by ps3 fans and the 360 is obviously the better console for exclusives (most highest rated)and multi-plats. FACT. anyways.... i always said i would be forced to get a ps3 one day because i do want a blu-ray player. i also said i would wait till e3 for an annoucement of the xbox blu or bluray add on for 360 but those fockers didn't announce it... oh well... guess my hand will be forced to buy the ps3 for blu-ray one day.
And I did say that. I said that I'm trying to be a little more open minded these days but that doesn't mean I will take ignorant crap from people like you. Did I ever say or even asserted that I admitted defeat? Stop trying to twist my words into your own liking. Just because I want a 360 now, that means I admitted defeat? If I admitted defeat, then I would have sold my PS3 and got the 360 by now. I'm owning *two* systems but I still support Sony. If you have a problem with that, then I can't help you. Your logic is really astounding etownone. It makes the mind boggle indeed. And cmrbe is right. Your logic is also kinda stupid. Please do finish your work before your boss fires you.
i just might get this one.
Excuse me while I go change my pants real quick
Robin pass me the Sh!t myself repellant Bat Spray
Smart move to release the movie in Hi-Def during the holidays. Maximizing profitability on a movie that has received critical acclaim as well as a strong reception by the public. This holiday season is going to be nice for picking up games and movies.
They should bundle The Dark Knight with the PS3. The advertising motto should be, "Playstation3 The Dark Knight". Let it be known that Playstation 3 IS the Dark Knight!!!! By the way, they should make a special limited edition bundle in which the PS3 has a special Dark Knight engraved faceplate. ^_^
ppl may be buying the cheapest blu ray player they could find if they don't already have one.......*co-ps3-ugh*
Purchase that would be !!!
this will fit perfect with batman begins and dark knight in my collection :D heath ledger as joker ftw!!!!!
i actually meant gotham knight lol
Too bad he died :(, his role was so good :(.
i feel sorry for the people who bought HD-DVD oh well.. sh!t happen eh!? hehehe joker: Why so serious?
well you shouldn't for all of them. If you got an hd dvd player when they were at $100.....you got a decent up converting dvd player...which that is the price that upconverting dvd players were running for at the time. Then also........there are some pretty cheap hd dvds you can purchase on amazon right now. Got to love fire sales.
May actually be the first movie I have to pre-order since demand is so big.
Day 1 purchase on Blu-ray.
this movie is just freakin amazing if they bundle it with PS3's like they did last year with the 40gig and spider man 3 then it's going to be a smashing success.
spider man 3 is a sony pictures movie the dark knight is a warner bros. movie i doubt there will be a dark knight ps3 bundle but that would be so awesome if there was considering my birthday is also december 9!!!
MGS4 was a Konami game, and PS3 a Sony console. i think deals can be made. it wouldn't surprise me to see a Dark Knight Bundle. after all, the PS3 is black and has Blu Ray, and the visual motif of The Dark Knight was black and blue. visually, the bundle would look quite nice. lol. i wouldn't disregard an 80gig bundle for the holidays. if Sony was smart, they'd announce a $50-$100 price drop at Leipzig next week, to take effect during the holiday season. a $300-$350 PS3 would MURDER the charts in terms of sales. especially with the awesome games lineup of this year from first, second, and third parties.
I think this is going to be my first blu-ray purchase
check amazon. Given how much cheaper you can get bluray movies on there......I do not understand how retail stores are still selling them for so high.
does amazon work in Sweden?
Well if it wasn't for Blu-ray my PS3 would be collecting dust - Ironman comes out on BR in Sept and now The Dark Knight in Dec. This is awsome as i loved both movies...i am glad i waited for the PS3 price to come down for the 40 gig. Still waiting for LBP and Killzone but in the meantime i will be enjoying Ironman and The Dark Night before i open any gifts on Christmas...Good time to own a BR player.
you're missing out on some great games. ratchet, uncharted, HS, MGS4, resistance to name some.
Gotta get this, awesome movie.
