Default Paramount Germany: Amazon's Blu-ray announcements are hoax

I didn't want to add this to the already existing "Paramout goes Blu!?" thread because here is a statement that denies it (of course we all know that denying or not denying ... could change every day...):

Straight from heise.de, Germany's biggest IT newssite (See http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/102242 , german)

It says
Quote:
On enquiry [of heise online] Paramount Germany said that these announcements are a hoax. The Amazon-listings are utterly wrong. Until now there is no declaration of intent from their holding company, to release henceforth on Blu-ray.
(No, I'm not red. Just wanted to share some new (?) information with all the people here.)

Stating that it is a hoax isn't quite honest. Hoax implies INTENT to give misinformation.

This was a mistake, through and through. I think even most Blu-ray supporters assumed it was probably a mistake on the part of some data-entry person. It happens.

Is this the same person that said Indian Jones and the Godfather would be on HD-DVD this year?

We all know Paramount will release on Blu-ray some time this year. Too bad it isn't sooner then later, so we could just finish this war.

I just read that Bill Hunt has been confronted today and has admitted that he was behind this along with the rumor that a major Chicago ce chain has stopped ordering HD DVD (see article at TGdaily.com).
That dude is a real piece o' work.

That's an awfully big claim there... I can't stand that clown either, but I hope you have something to back that up.

Isn't that wishing for $1.00 a gallon gasoline again?

I couldn't resist.
