Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just confirmed that the first batch of Blu-ray movies will arrive in US stores next Tuesday, 20th June. Is this the start of a new format revolution, or the beginning of the end for Sony?
The films to be released are all fairly bland, mainstream fare - 50 First Dates, The Fifth Element, Hitch and the House of Flying Daggers – and are being released for hardcore, home cinema buffs to use on Sony's Blu-ray compatible PC or on one of the first Blu-ray players from Samsung.
Whats funny is I wonder if Sony spoken to Samsung about their blu ray being delayed.
This is really funny no BetaBluRay player to be seen untill fall of this year, so where should people play it on?
Damn what a bad introduction this is
Bluray titles delayed, other bluray titles removed, actual hardware delayed till September (second delay in the last month), twice the price of HD-DVD. Follow this link to find out whats happening, great honest site.
I'm looking forward to Goodfellas, The Bourne Supremacy, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang & Serenity! So its got to be HD-DVD.
What is really cool about this is it will be a good way to gage how many people will be early adapters to blue ray. It could also be a clue into how they plan to launch the PS3.
So the blu-ray movies will be in the bargain bin before the players even hit the market. LOL
