HD DVD… so sweet.

The Matrix Trilogy is also released in exacting HD DVD format.  All 3 movies in a single package.  Only on HD DVD.

There’s also Batman Begins, which looks frickin’ bad ass.  This is one of the best HD DVD’s out there for it’s clarity and hi-fi audio.

And Blood Diamond, the Leonardo DiCaprio film, sports some fantastic interactive features only made possible using HD DVD.

The HD Forum has HD DVD supporting studios releasing many titles during 4th quarter of the year including "Battlestar Galactica Season One", all 4 "Harry Potter" movies, and "Oceans 11 & 12".  Yep, HD DVD is releasing major hit after major hit in it’s format.  Here’s a listing of what’s here and what’s coming from Amazon.

Universal Studios is asked, "Why HD DVD" when Disney, Fox and other has gone BluRay.  They’re quite eloquent in their explanations:

  • Ethernet Support available in all HD DVD players
    (Warner Bros "Blood Diamond" for HD DVD takes advantage of HD DVD players’ online-connected experience, where as the BluRay version does not)
  • Interactive Software Support (like rich iHD menus) available in all HD DVD players
    (Warner Bros "The Matrix" and "Batman Begins" are published only on HD DVD because of the rich programmable interactive software technology available.  BluRay supports Java programming for BluRay discs on only some of its players – requiring a system software upgrade for others.)
