After Toshiba decided to cease HD DVD production Universal quickly made the move to announce their Blu-ray support. All eyes were on Paramount to see when the last man standing would make their movie. After all, it was only a few months ago they announced HD DVD exclusivity. Well, the wait is no more. More inside.
The Hollywood Reporter received the exclusive word which stated:
“We are pleased that the industry is moving to a single high-definition format, as we believe it is in the best interest of the consumer. As we look to (begin) releasing our titles on Blu-ray, we will monitor consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly.”
This confirms the rumours that retailers had seen Paramount Blu-ray title appear back in their systems. Hopefully the quality of their new releases will be better than their previous outing.
