Default Bring Out Classic Jackie Chan films on HD-DVD Universal PIctures Japan!

I really hope it happens soon...i don't mean the dodgy US releases but the classic chan action films of the 70's and 80's, i found this link from play-asia and its the great Police Story series, 1-4 boxset with New Police Story being the 4th not Supercop or First Strike! But what makes it interesting is its on Universal Pictures Japan's website

Universal Pictures Japan - Jackie Chan Box Set

We must protest to get these on HD-DVD in Japan at least!

Edit: just noticed they (Universal) also have the Jackie Chan boxsets contain loads of earlier films on their site;

.... Please... Whenever you make a topic, do not state it as "... ON HD-DVD!" This makes others get their hopes up and tend to go into the article thinking that there is actually an HD DVD/will be an HD DVD coming soon (there will be, starting with Rush Hour 3).

But, yes, it would be nice.

"Fearless" is still amazing. I want "The One", badly.

As far as some of the Chan titles coming to any HD format stateside we have the Wienstiens to ask. They have done a great job of putting PS 1 and 2 on SD. They also have the US rights to some of Li's best films as well.

For some reason... it's called the "Unrated Edition". Tell me why this is and tell me why it's not the full cut?
