The silliness continues. HD DVD players were delayed in March because the content was not ready. And now, the release of Blu Ray movies has been delayed because the players are not ready. The new plan is for the movies to be released on June 20, a few days before Samsung introduces the first player.
Movies that are planned to be released at that point are: “Underworld Evolution” (arriving the same day as the DVD), “50 First Dates,” “The Fifth Element,” “Hitch,” “House of Flying Daggers,” “A Knight’s Tale,” “The Last Waltz,” “Resident Evil Apocalypse” and “XXX.”
There is still the issue with a competing standard and the fact that the players are looking to be priced at $999 and up. Someone let me know when someone wins the format war so I can then buy an HD player, hopefully for a lot less than $999.
