Default I, Robot Delayed

I was writing down a list of all the upcoming Blu-Ray movies I wanted to get this holiday. I used High Def Digest's release date page as a guide. After I wrote down all the movies (trust me, there was a lot) I noticed that I didn't have I, Robot written down. I figured I had just skipped over but went back to the release date page to confirm. I get to November 13, and... nothing listed. I then scroll down to Release Dates postponed and sure enough I, Robot is listed!

This is really bad news, this was easily one of my most anticipated titles from Fox. I am really hoping that Fox doesn't delay any more titles from here on out. I'm getting pretty aggrevated by them.

not a surprise. Fox seems to not want to release catalog titles anymore IMO. It's not bd production issues, imo. It's just Fox. I cannot take any announcement of catalog titles seriously anymore. I would say no-one should take any catalog announcement by Fox seriously anymore. JUST MY OPINION OK.

Blu-ray.com insider says that Fox is still having problems getting their titles to work properly on all the standalones. Apparently they get the test discs ahead of time to try, and if they don't all work, then obviously they have to delay titles.

So this is being said to be the reason for these catalog delays. why are the catalogs the only one's that get delayed is what I want to know?

That's a good question.

I just learned that I, Robot will be released sometime in 2008. No firm date, though. Kris Deering from AVS reports that this was announced at a Blu-Ray festival. Also had to report that Sunshine will Fox's first full 1.1 release. That will be out in 2008 too.

would you rather Fox release it in nov bare bones and requiring firmware updates or in jan/feb with high-def exclusive extras and no problems? this title was apparently demoed at the blu-ray festival so its in the stages of being put together and apparently will be a stellar release. i for one am glad fox is back and seems committed to worthwhile releases.
