July, the month of catalog titles continues for both formats. This week, HD DVD continues to make up loss ground on Blu-ray with four new titles to Blu-ray's nada. This is the first in some time that Blu-ray hasn't even bothered to release even one catalog title, they are making it even easier for H

HD DVD gets Blood Diamond this week and with web enabled content, so if you haven't already, go download the latest firmware update. It was released on Blu-ray last month sans the new interactive content. The rest of the titles are solid catalog titles, as most titles this month are. While the total

With the second half of 2007 right around the corner, Warner has come out and confessed that its Total HD discs won't be delivered this year -- contrary to what was promised during CES 2007. While a new release date isn't given, they are shooting for early 2008. There also isn't a mention of the rea

For 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 g

Wow, talk about a slow week. One movie between the two formats, but it isn't just HD formats that are in a drought, new releases for DVDs are pretty much non-existent this week as well. The one and only title this week is from Disney and part of the same series that brought us the Chronicles of Narn

Are the tides turning? First HD DVD's version of Planet Earth outsells Blu-ray, then HD DVD players sales are way up, and now Universal releases a nice slew of catalog titles to help HD DVD make up some ground in the race to have the most titles available. But wait, Blu-ray isn't going down without

The recent sale on HD DVD players is going great for Toshiba; by keeping the price of a HD DVD players almost half of the cheapest standalone Blu-ray player they have continued to win the player race. Sure the PS3 is out there, -- with much higher quantities-- but the movie attach rate for a PS3 is

Another week of catalog titles, don't get us wrong we like classic movies as much as the next, but there is nothing like new releases to drive us to buying. One title that is kinda new is Blood Diamond, at least to Blu-ray. What is interesting about this title is the fact that the Blu-ray version is

After last week's spectacular releases, we knew we could only be disappointed this week, but we did expect the studios to at least try. Sure it could be worse, there could be no titles at all, but instead we have a bunch of catalog titles. Universal is again pulling the load for HD DVD this week wit

The key to success of any new technology in this country is to drive the price down so much that it becomes affordable for everyone to own, and while Blu-ray still has a long way to go to hit that level, it looks like they might be on their way. Recently in a financial report from Funai, -- a Chines

In what is almost definitely the best week ever for both formats, we see both of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies from Disney on Blu-ray and both Matrix box sets for HD DVD. While the Matrix movies will be available on Blu-ray whenever they get their act together, there is less hope for HD DVD fa

While Blu-ray and/or HD DVD might be the biggest news here an Engadget HD, the same can't be said for the world of home automation and high-end home theater installers. CE Pro has an interesting article about the reasons why this is the case, but were not sure if we buy it. We have talked with a few

In a week that can only be described as the calm before the storm, Warner has a few solid catalog titles for both camps, as well as the best offering this week in The Fountain. Also as expected, HD DVD titles get a DD+ audio track while the Blu-ray fans are still stuck with plain ol' DD. If audio qu

Here we go again with the rumors, which is exactly what this is -- and again a rumor that requires translation, but we couldn't pass this one buy. Universal has been HD DVD's ace in the hole and sure The Weinstein Company is also an HD DVD exclusive, but Universal is one of the most powerful names i

May gets off to a slow start this week, but stayed tuned things are going to get interesting this month. The biggest title this week is Dreamgirls and available for both formats in a 2 disc set, but unlike other dual format releases these two don't share the same encode, but according to Hi-Def Dige

We know there is nothing more fun than predicting a winner to the latest format war, but this is starting to get out of hand. We have come to expect this sort of thing from Sony and their friends, but now the New York Post is putting in their two cents and we're not sure what has changed recently th
