Sony and Fox are announcing 20 BR-ROM launch titles each tomorrow; Disney is not included as making such an annoucement tomorrow however.


Looks like Amir was quite successful in turning Disney around.

That would be Hilarious if Disney told Blu-Ray to pound sound. Just think, BRs biggest cheer leader drops them for HD-DVD. This soap opera just keeps getting better. Then Universal drops HD-DVD. It never ends.

********, I am guessing you have not read the new thread since otherwise you would have seen this post and the many others that followed it. Also ******** I know you dislike Blu-ray but must you always make it so blatant in every one of your posts?

Who exactly are you trying to assure with this "info"? Considering Pirates of the Carribean looks like it will be a BR launch title I'd venture to say Disney hasn't changed anything.


Instead of grabbing for thin air, why don't you spill the beans on the 40 BR titles you know of?

According to Video Business , Disney "will announce its titles and other plans at a Blu-ray Disc media event at CES on Thursday evening". So, it will be tomorrow (from today :D ).


In the meantime, as Richard Paul said, there is a sneak peek at some Disney/Buena Vista BR titles here:

Now for a question of ethics:


The initial post of this thread is a prime example of FUD. It begins by giving an opinion in the form of a question. Indeed, you can get away with 'Is Disney having second thoughts about BR-ROM [sic] now?' much easier than if you posted outright 'Disney is having second thoughts...'


The poster then gives some true information (title announcement on Wednesday by Fox and Sony, but not by Disney), but misses key information, namely, that Disney's announcement is actually taking place, only a day later than those of Fox and Sony.


Now, from that (incomplete) information, he jumps to the conclusion that, since Disney isn't announcing any titles on the same date as Fox and Sony, Microsoft must have won Disney over to HD DVD. No, sorry, he only says 'looks like...'.


In my opinion, this misinformation, FUD and innuendo is way more offensive than any personal diatribe ever read on this forum, and much more damaging to the S/N.

Just ignore ********. :cool:


He's also the individual who claimed to be able to calculate the costs and margins of the PS/3 and the XBox360 better than the analysts in the business and still coulden't figure out how to correctly calculate the resolution when you divide one screen into four and claiming that BD50 is science fiction and years away though BD50 now is announced to arrive this year with specific titles among many other virtues...


So...just ignore..... :D

I've got at least a half-dozen on DVD and am not looking to replace them in the short term that quickly, particularly because the kids don't watch them as much as I expected (except for Kiki). The only one on my short list, at least at this point, would be Princess Mononoke.

I have to hope for something. The rest of the companies are probably not going to touch either format this year or probably next year either so unless it's coming out of Japan or from someone like Disney, my anime HD experience is going to be minimal.


Still hoping for some real word on region coding from CES.

According to the most recent reports, Japan and the US are in the same region for Blu-Ray. Still no announcement from HD-DVD on RCE, if any.

Yeah, I've seen the same, but I'm hoping for something concrete and official. There were no denials about that coding change but there weren't any "yes, this is what we're doing and its final"

BUENA VISTA HOME ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES LINE-UP OF BLU-RAY DISC TITLES


First titles to include Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Dinosaur, Hero and others


Burbank, CA, 1/4/2006 – Buena Vista Home Entertainment (BVHE) president Bob Chapek today announced that BVHE will begin releasing titles beginning summer of 2006 on the Blu-ray Disc format in conjunction with the hardware manufacturer's release of Blu-ray Disc products. Titles will include Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Vol. 1; award-winning Hero; Dark Water starring Jennifer Connelly; Ladder 49 starring John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix; The Brothers Grimm starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger; The Great Raid starring Benjamin Bratt; Armageddon directed by Michael Bay and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer; Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back; Walt Disney Pictures' Dinosaur; and the documentary Everest narrated by Liam Neeson. These ten titles mark the first wave of an ongoing release strategy from BVHE which will support the Blu-ray format.


Commenting on the announcement, Chapek stated, "The Blu-ray Disc represents a major technological advance in our industry, and just as DVD revolutionized home entertainment, the Blu-ray Disc promises to be the next step in our ability to satiate the consumer's appetite for entertainment by providing the ultimate user experience. The possibilities are endless and we've just begun to bridge the future of digital entertainment."


Blu-ray Disc is the next generation home entertainment medium featuring storage capacity 5 times greater than current DVDs, a picture compressed and authored in full high-definition 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080) and lossless audio (bit-for-bit directly from the sound stage) allowing for the first time a pristine digital audio and video home entertainment experience equal or superior to theatrical feature presentations. In addition to film, the Blu-ray Disc will also support music, gaming and other digital entertainment.


At launch, BVHE's Blu-ray titles will feature seamless, high resolution overlay pop-up menus which will allow for a first-time-ever continuous movie play experience; dynamic and unparalleled, high-definition picture; up to 7.1 channels of surround sound; new layering coating technology which provides a scratch resistance surface; and new sleek packaging. Other Disney Blu-ray feature technologies being developed include unparalleled interactive features; simultaneous on-screen chapter selection; and compelling online content, including web connectivity, which will allow users to connect to live events hosted by the studio and more.


Chapek added, "We are in an era where the consumer has growing control over the delivery of their entertainment choices. Blu-ray Disc represents a significant change in the digital landscape and how the consumer not only views but interacts with their choices."
Please, give it a rest, ********.
