According to the press releases, the Blu-Ray version is going to be $1 cheaper than the HD DVD copy...

If the difference is a buck, then I'll just get the HD-DVD version. Unless the early reviews say the PCM track is superior.

Yeah I wonder if part of the extra cost had to do with creating the TrueHD and in this case LPCM soundtracks since their old tracks were 640K direct 5.1 to 5.1+ ports.


ME even if I supported both formats. At $1 more it would make getting the DVD side a benefit and a deal at that price. I could back it up and lend it to my friends. Specially after what happened to my Superman Returns.

How can the PCM track be superior than TrueHD? lossless sound = uncompressed sound

I'm guessing they will both be 16/48, but with space and bandwidth they could go with 24/48. Basically, non-lossy "lossless".

Didn't think about it that way. Thanks for the reminder!

Incidentally, it's already jumped to #282 in the sales rankings in less than 24 hours. The BD is still unavailable to order though. With the exclusives on either side, I still believe it'll be big neutral titles like these that will really point to which format is doing best and are more likely to sway exclusive studios when they see how much more they could have sold.


It's also proof to me that people DO buy combos, like them or not...
