What am I going to put in the thread?
"Here are 7 announced titles - you won't be able to buy 6 of them and the 7th is going to be released in Q4" ???
Actually, if you simply copied the information you have listed in the first post of this thread without the editorial commentary (which is, of course, appropriate for the purposes of this thread but not that one), that would suffice.
Since you obviously don't see the need for such a thing, allow me to try to make a case for you:
1. Bluray 3D players and 3D-HDTV's are available right now, and more are scheduled to be released shortly. There are TV ads and other marketing directed at promoting this technology, and there is an associated interest.
2. Since these items are being sold in electronic stores RIGHT NOW, there is an implication that movie titles are available - or at least soon will be.
3. However, as you have pointed out, there is (very) limited content to play on these new items and, furthermore, what content is available (or has been announced to be) appears to be exclusively tethered to these new hardware items.
4. This information IN AND OF ITSELF is worthy of a sticky, as it constitutes a very unusual situation, and should be conveniently accessible to anyone interested in 3D-HDTV and/or 3DBD technology (i.e., the people searching this forum).
5. Furthermore, since these titles are being tethered exclusively to certain hardware, it could influence purchasing decisions related to obtaining 3D technology in the home. For instance, I might be more likely to purchase a Samsung product (and maybe get MvA and Shrek 1-4) than a Panasonic (and get Ice Age and Coraline). Or, I might decide to wait on the Samsung until Shrek 1-4 is available as opposed to getting MvA now.
6. You're taking the time and effort to provide weekly "release updates" on this thread, when they would be more fitting on a thread dedicated to release updates (even if there are none).
7. So, since you thought it was worthwhile to make a thread that, among other things, (a) lists 3DBD titles that are available or have been annonced and (b) provides weekly updates, whether or not there are any - why not just have a thread dedicated to that purpose, particularly when a few people have specifically requested it?
