Default Mummy on BD vs Mummy HD DVD

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=1290

BD50 vs BD30 - advantage Blu-Ray
DTS-HD-Ma (lossless) vs DD+ (lossy) - advantage Blu-Ray
Blu-Ray version gets digitally remastered.. - advantage Blu-Ray
Blu-Ray version gets PiP and U-Control - advantage Blu-Ray

Can't wait to see the review on this one.. One thing is certain, I will be selling my unopened copy of the HD DVD version very soon..

I am very happy to see Universal step it up on the quality side. Quite a few of their HD DVD releases were just average at best. Hopefully they will continue to remaster some of the critical catalog titles and add lossless.

Good news for BD owners who waited the format war out..

The mummy was one of the first hd dvd's released should we go back and see all the first blu-rays released see how they hold up?

Better not. That would be very embarrassing to BD.

I'm not sure how they could feel embarrassed when their competition is dead.

Doesn't change the issue does it - about the early BD releases.

Good bait and switch though.

Feel free. How many of those titles were remastered, lossless track added, larger capacity disc offered, and then made available on HD DVD again?

Actually... I'm quite certain that The Mummy HD DVD doesn't have a PiP track, so score another extra for the BD version.

This is really a great sign, I figured Universal would step up and do a good job with their Blu-Ray releases. Glad that seems to be happening.

Nothing bait and switch about it. HD DVD is dead, thanks for playing. Should we conduct a sťance next, or do you have some more fictitious products on the horizon? Scurry along now.
