Let's say, Sony is able to ship the Blu-ray in Dec. as is predicted at this point....
Blu-Ray is currently scheduled to ship in 2006.
HD-DVD will ship in time for Christmas 2005. Among theHD-DVD titles: slated to make their HD DVD bow this year are the upcoming Warner theatrical releases Batman Begins, Constantine, starring Keanu Reeves; and the Tim Burton-directed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp.
The three new releases will lead a slate of 50 titles from the studios, also including The Polar Express and The Phantom of the Opera, along with HBO's The Sopranos and New Line's Rush Hour and Final Destination. Paramount will contribute the upcoming Cameron Crowe film Elizabethtown and the recent Manchurian Candidate as part of a 20-title slate, while Universal will offer Van Helsing, The Bourne Supremacy and The Chronicles of Riddick.
Toshiba and Sanyo will begin selling HD DVD players in the U.S. by the fourth quarter.
