Universal HD titles announced.

Just seen this at DVDTimes:

The HD DVD Promotion Group has once again updated their official Release List and have added several high-profile titles from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
Jaws
Jurassic Park
Meet The Fockers
Psycho
Scarface (1983)
Shaun Of The Dead
Slap Shot
Smokin Aces
The Big Lebowski
The Return
The Shining (1980)

Each of the titles is currently listed as having an undecided release date. However, a film's appearance in the Promotion Group's listing has, in the past, given HD DVD owners a reliable indicator of what to expect.

In the case of "E.T.", this June will mark the 25th anniversary of the film's release, so a DVD re-release and HD DVD release around this time could be a potential successful marketing move for Universal.

Thanks, once again to David Mackenzie at DVDTimes.co.uk.

Apology for our Contents List



The inclusion in the January 29 update of our "Coming Soon List" of three Steven Spielberg classics was an error on our part. The HD DVD Promotion Group expresses sincere apologies to Steven Spielberg, Universal Studios Home Entertainment and HD DVD fans for this mistake. We will endeavor to prevent any similar mistake and to provide accurate information.

Perhaps they are happening, they just don't want anyone to know until they've sorted out rights issues etc?

True, but it's likely to be coming to both formats this year.

That's list is pretty rubbish frankly. It seems like nothing but an instrument to quell any doubts. I don't think they even said those titles would be coming this year.

Anyone who knows anything about DVD knows that the studio's aren't going to release the big guns until there's enough consumers on board. I can't believe so many people have been taken in
