Default Any international titles announced for after Jun1st?

I was just wondering if there were any titles being announced after June 1st over the pond? Are there any studios that might keep HD DVD on life support if there is still some demand?

I sure hope so. You'll still have the million plus HD DVD owners out there with fairly new hardware. If all the majors walk, then the indies will have the field to themselves. I know for a fact that there are many HD DVD owners who will buy titles if they're available, and if indies are all that's available new, then they will be looked into...and some small labels will be aware of this and give HD DVD a shot.

Toshiba should've sold their replication plants to the indies and make a few bucks out of it.

It was said before that any modern DVD replication facility could be turned into a HD DVD replication facility with a "flick of a switch". If there's any truth to it, I guess replication shouldn't be a problem...

I sure hope some indies will still be testing the waters even after June 1st. Currently I don't know any other titles announced after May except Freedom 6 & 7 and they are not import exclusive.

Yeah, those 2 were indeed announced and will hopefully come out. I have Trainspotting recently recorded in full HD already from Japanese WOWOW HDTV channel though, but I'd buy it on HD DVD if it comes out It would be nice if Channel 4 Films continue releasing in HD DVD. I hope they sell a lot of their 5 upcoming discs to convince them to continue releasing.
