HD DVD and Blu-ray releases on February 12th, 2008

Ben Drawbaugh

It's the second week of February as Blu-ray continues to pour out another seven titles that helps the Blu camp on its way to 29 for the month. Meanwhile the red camp has two movies on its way to 17 for the month, of which only seven are from studios you've heard of. Sure we've heard of Girls Gone Wild, but it's hardly what we'd call a hot popular title. So while red waits for American Gangster next week the Blu camp gets the latest Marky Mark crime drama, We Own the Night. The other three mentionable titles for Blu this week are from Disney and Warner and while nothing really exciting here, the latest Ben Affleck move Gone Baby Gone has a IMDB rating of 8.0. Although we have no doubt that Blu-ray movies will outsell HD DVD this week, we do wonder what the split will be. On one hand HD DVD has slowly regained lost ground to Blu the past few weeks, but on the other with only two mentionable exclusives on the calendar this year -- so far -- it would take one heck of a sale to continue to make up the difference.

HD DVD 386 vs Blu-ray 444*

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