Default Sony Q1 2007 Blu-ray Plans

Sony issued their press release for CES a little bit ago:

The most interesting nugget in there is Sony's move from MPEG-2 to AVC. Hurray.

Finally, Sony is deciding to move away from MPEG-2!

Where's Bad Boys II?! I really want that...

Casino Royale is going to be a huge seller, maybe the best selling HD title ever.

Thumbs up

I just hope that by "putting their foot in the water," as stated in the article about Sony using AVC, they can get this encoding method done right so that one of their most highly anticipated titles of the year doesn't look like doo-doo (not unlike some of the PQ problems they had with some of their first BD releases and MPEG-2).

Let's cross our fingers in hoping that this becomes one bad-ass reference title.

I would like to see Sony taking a more leading role in releasing Blu-Ray movies.

Kind of the way Universal is leading the way for HD DVD.

instead of being a market leader, Sony is a follower, lots of their titles were delayed, and instead of being a studio with the leading amount of releases, they are squarely behind the middle of the pack.

As an alleged Blu-Ray leader, it would be nicer to see them pushing out more Movies on the format.

The extra's are very overrated. many of us prefer a beautiful transfer, great sound and movie trailer. maybe the director commentary. but to go overboard is missing the point. sometimes, we need to get movies on Blu-Ray so they can win the war.

later on they can come out with the second editions that have the killer extras.

Blu-Ray Movies i own:
Tallageda (uncensored), Total Recall, Christmas Story, Superman 1, 2 & returns, Devil Wears Prada, Monster House, Black Hawk Down, World Trade Center, Full Metal Jacket, Lord Of War & Mission Impossible 3.

It's saying something that the best studio for HD titles on either format is Warners.

That 1 mil number is misleading,too. That's the number of PS3s shipped to retailers. According to Ars Technica:

http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070108-8574.html

there are still plenty of PS3s in the wild to be had, even in larger metro areas.

If sales don't pick up, my own personal prediction that the PS3 would be a sellout until spring will be proven false.
