Fox puts rush on "X-Men" for PS3 Blu-ray

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Seeking to ride PlayStation 3 momentum, 20th Century Fox is rush-releasing "X-Men: The Last Stand" to Blu-ray Disc on November 14, three days before Sony's next-generation video game console makes its U.S. debut.

Rushed products are always a good value. ;-)

This will probably be the first Blu-ray title that I buy.. As long as the rush doesn't mean that they're shortchanging special features of the quality of the transfer.

Edit: On second thought, it'd better be cheaper than the list price of $39.98. If the actual sale price at Best Buy or Walmart is that high, I'll wait until they drop the price. But it'll probably be $24.99 like most of the other Blu-ray releases.

awesome I'll get it sooner as well or is this only for blu ray?

I've been holding off on this and MI3 so that I can get the Blu-Ray versions. If they end up too expensive, Netflix thankfully will send you Blu-Ray and HD-DVD versions of movies at no extra charge, which is how I usually watch new releases anyways :)
