The true mistake is Paramount not making that move back to Blu-ray.

Had they never committed to HD-DVD, by the date of the end of the contract, they would have made up even MORE money! Their contract supposedly ends in a year. Had they never committed, blu-ray would have gone up even higher, and 10 million movie sales in one year would have been a lot easier in the Blu-ray format (not to mention interests).

by denying there claims that they will move to blu ray is just stalling so thier lawyers can figure out the best way out of thier contract with HD -dvd. thats all that is happening with these denials.

Paramount will not go Blu-Ray exclusive for at least a couple of months. Really hope they do not take like 6 months to do so.

I bought it on Blu-Ray already to replace my aged VHS version. You might still be able to find a few copies out there in the wild.
