Yes, it was.


These three unique titles were added recently to the list:


Deadlands 2: Trapped (in Other Studio's Movies)


Railway Story: China South Part 1 (in the import list under doc/other)

Railway Story: China South Part 2


I had assumed the last two never got released, since the release date was 3/26/08, over a month after the format war ended, and that no copies were known to exist until now. Anyway, there are 10 Railway Story titles instead of 8.


Also Railway Story: China Part 1 has been changed to Railway Story China North Part 1. The same goes for part 2.

Please, can anyone tell me where is the list of HD DVDs that have superior audio over their Blu-ray counterpart.


IE: The Any Bully and Happy Feet both feature TrueHD soundtracks on the HD DVD releases, but only Dolby Digital lossy on the Blu-rays.


Thanks!

You can also add Happy Feet and The Ant Bully to that list as well. (same criteria for audio)

Thanks for those, I didn't realize that Ant Bully was TrueHD either (not listed as such but is). I found two others that I had missed as well.

It's a 3x DVD not a real HD DVD. It should play. It should just make a lot of noise.

So even thos it says HD DVD on the disc and the Manufacturers site, it really isn't? My Toshiba says "NO DISC"

You might just have a bad disc, or it might be dirty--might have to do the boil or spray away method.

I heard these were initially released with the HD DVD label, but they were only DVDs with WMV HD files on them. Try popping it in your computer. I am guessing it will play.

Pirates, although it's on dvd rom DL media, is encoded in the HD DVD format (720p VC-1). It's definitely not a WMV and it plays fine on my XA2 (which it would not do if it were a WMV disc).
