I laughed when I Thought that new line might only support Blu ray! That woulda been funny In that "kinda really Stupid Way"
It only makes sense that a movie based on a exclusive game stay exclusive to the company and its supporters!
Besides that stuff, Games like Gears, Condemned and Alen Wake etc. etc. are starting to replace movies for me....With there stunning graphics, Great story telling, consuming story lines and unbelievable voice over work....Who needs to watch a movie when you can play one!

Games replaced movies for me when Half life came out.

And that is why most TV programing is geared towards women. Guys rather play next gen games.
