Universal pushes back several HD DVD titles

Universal has shuffled back the planned release dates for three of their upcoming HD DVD movies for unknown reasons. Backdraft, previously scheduled for September 12, is now slated for  a week later on September 19,  while Army of Darkness & Fast Times at Ridgemont High also slide a week from October 3 to October 10. They've also apparently given up on the Dual-format nomenclature, following Warner in calling them Combo versions. A name change is nice we guess, but we'd really like to see a price drop that brought them in line with other HD DVD releases, paying extra for future proofing is getting really tired.
