Warner gives Blu-Ray three week lead time on catalog titles as well.

Taking the next step in its transition to Blu-ray exclusivity, Warner has extended its three-week delay on HD DVD releases to include catalog titles.

This move comes only days after the studio announced similar plans for the HD DVD editions of its new release titles, starting with 'The Invasion' and 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.'

At the time, it seemed that catalog titles would continue to be released concurrently on both next gen formats through May, but the studio now tells us that it's expanding its strategy to include catalog titles too, with the HD DVD versions of all of its remaining titles through the June 1 cut-off also receiving a three-week release delay.

The first two titles to officially receive new dates are 'Twister' (with the HD DVD edition pushed back from May 6 to May 27), and 'Bonnie & Clyde' (which sees a bump from March 25 to April 15). The Blu-ray and standard DVD editions will remain unaffected.

Tech specs and supplement details for 'Twister' remain as originally announced, as does the HD DVD's $28.98 list price.

You'll find disc details for 'Twister' and 'Bonnie & Clyde' linked from our HD DVD Release Schedule, where they are now indexed under their new, respective street dates.

We'll keep you posted on any future tweaks to Warner's HD DVD release schedule as they come in.

And now all the poor losers are trying to keep HD-DUD alive by making online petitions, like that's going to help. Time to move on, Toshiba. You're only showing how desperately pathetic you are by lowering the price to your HD-DUD players. Not even the price drops are helping so why continue? And you 360 fanfags buying HD-DUD add-ons are even more hilarious. This just isn't your year, Microcrap. Horrid lineup for 08, Blu-ray wins, Xbox Live unstable, the RROD is still going strong and etc.

Just give up. Sony always wins.

WB confirmed to be working on the titles that are up till now only released on HD-DVD, such as: The Matrix, V for Vendetta and Batman Begins

I did a little reaserch and I didnt realize it was already out for HDDVD. I will probably just go ahead and get it on DVD because I dont wanna wait and I have the sudden urge to buy that movie.

Blu-ray (PS3) = Sony
HD-DUD (Microcrap) = Losers aka 360 owners that got the add-on.
