Alot people over at AVS seem to think beatboy spreads a lot of fud. Not saying what he posted is, but it is possible.

Honestly, 18 months... I can EASILY live with Paramount on upscaled DVD until then. In the mean time I'll be buying Lost, The Complete Spider-Man Trilogy, Mr. and Mrs Smith, and the entire Die Hard series.

The NYT has an article that also echoes the 18 month window of exclusivity. I though Paramount thought all this was worth investing in. Why only 18 months then?

that would end the war, but sadly it's not going to happen yet... if ever.

but yeah. it's not helpful to release quite so many titles in quite such a short period of time... makes it a lot harder to sneak stuff past the boss.
