    Someone at dvdfile posted that these are now part of the upcoming list. There were links to an avs thread as well as to the hd dvd promo group website. Is this true? I dont have access to avs and I thought the universal guy stated there are no plans for any spielberg at this time

    It looks like the list they've had posted since mid-2006, with a couple of title and date changes/additions. IIRC, the Spielberg films have always been listed.

    The document may have been updated, but various revisions of the list have been available at that specific link for months.

    I'd be a lot more impressed if a great deal of those movies hadn't been on the list for the last year, or if they had anything more than "TBD" in Japanese on them. I'm seeing a lot of people elsewhere yet again proclaiming Blu-ray's death since these titles are obviously coming out this year. Well, in January of 2006 the PRG list had Shawshank, the Star Trek films, Deadwood, and about 75% of the "TBD" titles from this "new list", and we haven't heard peep about them. Not to mention they've got several glaring errors, such as The Aviator and The Shining coming from Universal, when they're Warner films; or any New Line title when it's been stated they will be TotalHD.

    ET and Jurassic Park were released on MUSE (analog HD) laserdisc in the '90s, so it makes sense they would come to a digital HD disc sooner or later.

    Never say never but I'd be shocked if Jaws, E.T. or Jurassic Park was released in the next year or two.

    If even one of those three films saw the light of day on HD DVD this year that would be a definite boost to the format.

    Well thankfully we have people here that are more level headed than to use this news to inflame more war propaganda. That's one reason I try not to venture over to those "other sites". Too much negativity.

    If Jaws comes to HD, it'll no doubt be the killer HD app, in my opinion (until Star Wars comes out).

    I don't know how much it means but Jaws was on the Universal HD channel this past weekend.

    Does anyone know how many DVDs those 3 Spielberg's have sold? I'm thinking the 2 Pirates BDs will dwarf the sales of those 3.
