Universal Announces Mega-Wave of HD DVD Catalog for June
Tags: Disc Announcements, Universal (all tags)
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will bring more than a dozen new catalog titles to HD DVD this June, top-lined by the hits 'Bruce Almighty,' 'Daylight' and 'Liar, Liar.'
In the studio's biggest one-day announcement ever for HD DVD, they have unveiled a two-tier June attack comprised of a lucky thirteen new catalog faves. Among the two waves of titles are:
No specs have yet been issued for the titles, but there is no reason to think all won't include Universal's now-standard 1080p/VC-1 transfers and Dolby Digital-Plus sound configurations. The extras should also align with what is offered on their standard-def DVD counterparts.
Surprisingly, given Universal's prior pledge to release the majority of its 2007 next-gen titles as HD DVD/DVD combo discs, its entire June catalog wave are currently pegged as HD DVD only.
All have a suggested list price of $29.98.
We'll be adding all thirteen of Universal's new announcements to our database over the rest of the day, so watch our HD DVD Release Schedule to see those June slots fill up real fast. Stay tuned for full specs to be unveiled in the days ahead.
