HD DVD and Blu-ray releases on June 26th, 2007

Dead Silense HD DVDFor anyone who thought Universal was going to switch sides, think again, because they have 11 of the 14 titles for HD DVD this week. Blu-ray only has two this week, and to add insult to injury they are not exclusive. So while the Blu-ray camp basically mailed it in this week, HD DVD has closed the gap to within 20 -- we're not sure how we feel about counting re-issued titles, but for now they count. But there are lots of quality catalog titles, and not many new releases. We don't know about anyone else, but the next big title to us -- for either format -- is 300, due at the end of July.

HD DVD 237 vs Blu-ray 257.
