HD DVD and Blu-ray releases on October 23rd, 2007

Ben Drawbaugh

This week might be some kind of record with almost 15 titles for each format. Blu-ray did have a few more and as a result has pulled within three of HD DVD. Next week is the big week that Blu-ray pulls back ahead since we removed the Paramount titles; but don't get too excited, 'cause many of the new titles aren't Hollywood blockbusters. Back to this week, both camps have a few exclusives, but Blu-ray has a few day-and-date exclusives like Mr. Brooks, Hostel: Part II, Home of the Brave and The Company. Warner continues to roll out classic catalog titles like Eye Wide Shut, 2001, and The Shining. Lastly, Universal has the Al Pacino classic Carlito's Way. As great of a week as this is for both camps, Blu-ray fans are no doubt waiting for next week when Spider-Man 3 hits the shelves.

HD DVD 322 vs Blu-ray 319 *


*Blu-ray total does not reflects 32 Paramount titles that were previously available.
