Default Will we ever see Hot Fuzz on Blu-Ray....

We all know this movie is awesome on the HD-DVD format (got five stars all around on this site) and I was wondering if we, the blu-ray community, will ever see this movie on blu-ray. Is Rogue studios (the company behind the movie and Shaun of the Dead) a HD-DVD exclusive company?

well, that stinks. Were just going to have to wait till Universal throws in the towel on being HD-DVD exclusive.

imo it's not worth the wait. First you are waiting for them to go neutral, AND THEN you have to wait for them to actually release that specific title. :-0 Just buy an HD DVD player, they are way cheap.

You can still get it on DVD, and in an upscaling player it looks great. That's what I do with all my Uni movies... upscale until they go neutral in late 08 early 09.

the DVD looks pretty bad, i tried both version and the HD DVD version is the best HD Disk i have EVER seen, the tranfer is amazing, the extras are endless, the movie is awesome. Best HD disk ever.

Neutral is the way to go. It is the best of both worlds. "If" Universal goes Neutral late next year they will have way over 125+ titles on HD DVD. Who knows how many of these titles will carry over to BLU RAY. I started with HD DVD, built a library and then jumped into BLU RAY. If you love films and love Hi Def it is the best way to go. I enjoy watching both formats and have no regrets in purchasing either.

Once the PS3 fails (not so long) why would uni even want to go neutral?
