    Well, with the coming Blu-ray release of Streets of Fire, I will be down to just one lone remaining HD-DVD title left over; the Alec Baldwin/Kim Basinger version of The Getaway. Definitely a guilty pleasure, this HD-DVD may be my lone title in that format for a long time to come (possibly forever) as I don't see Universal getting this one out on Blu any time in the foreseeable future. Probably, the only chance this film has of ever getting a Blu-ray release is from a third party company like Kino.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I see it is once again a Shout Release (as opposed to the actual studio)- which is fine as they do good work

    I'd not heard that, who has decided to release SoF in the US?
    I finally gave up and imported the EU version with the tons of extras since my current player is region-free.
    Just saw it was Shout Select.. of course this comes 2 months after I bought from the UK...

    I heard that a Blu-ray release of For Love of the Game is due out on August 8 but can't confirm?

    Possibly a retailer exclusive window involved. Best Buy the 8th, everywhere else 2 months later: (the other site does not indicate it as a retailer exclusive but cannot find on any other sites)

    Thanks for the intel...

    For Love of the Game - Best Buy exclusive coming out August 8, 2017. Likely available via Amazon and other outlets in 2 months. Have just checked a couple other sites and no go.

    I have this on HD DVD. I'll wait for the reviews, but there would have to be a very noticeable improvement in PQ for me to even consider a double-dip on this.

    I hope the Blu-ray is a good one as this was on my list of HD DVD's to buy when the format started to go under. I held off thinking that it would be an early Blu release since it was already out on HD DVD. Obviously I was wrong on that one. Here we are about 8 years later and it is finally showing up. It is one of the last regular DVD's that I still have that is waiting for the upgrade.

    I did remove Slither from the list as it is available now.
    Not sure what I want to do when the For The Love of the Game movie comes out as it will be a Best Buy exclusive. Probably means 60 days later available anywhere. Most people in this US of A have access to a local Best Buy or their website.

    For Love of the Game will be available everywhere else on October 10, as suspected, a 2 month exclusive window at Best Buy.

    For Love of the Game is no longer a Best Buy exclusive and has been removed from the list.

    At this point the faucet drip is so slow it's like a drought. Maybe Weinstein will release theirs now, lol.

    2017 has turned out to be the most prolific year for old HD DVD releases that I had finally getting to Blu-ray. For the last few years I have been sitting on my final three HD DVD titles until now. With my recent purchases of Streets of Fire and For the Love of the Game, I am down to one remaining HD DVD title, the Alec Baldwin/Kim Basinger remake of The Getaway. I have this feeling that I will be sitting with that one HD DVD title on my shelf for some time to come. The Getaway remake was neither a critical nor a box office success by any means so I don't see any company rushing to put out a Blu any time soon. At best, it is a guilty pleasure but not one that I feel carries enough interest in people owning it to push a company into releasing it. Actually I have older DVD's that will probably see a Blu release before this one does.
