It's another combo disc.

'Miami Vice' Cruising to DVD and HD-DVD in December
September 29, 2006
Universal Studios Home Entertaiment has announced 'Miami Vice' is headed to DVD and Combo Format HD-DVD on December 5.

The DVD version will be available as either the theatrical cut or an unrated director's cut. Both will include anamorphic widescreen 2.4:1 video and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.

The Combo Format HD-DVD ups the home theater experience ante with Dolby Digital TrueHD 5.1 audio and widescreen 2.4:1 1080p video. The HD-DVD side will include the unrated director's cut while the DVD side will include the seven minute shorter theatrical cut.

We'll update the disc detail pages once extra features are made available by Universal. The HD-DVD Combo Format will carry an SRP of $39.98, while both DVD versions will come in at $29.98.

Interesting that only the director's cut will be in HD, which I'm sure will make more than a few people upset. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I loved what I saw in theaters, so I hope the extended version is more of the same, so I'll wait and see. I was going to buy this one anyway, but the TrueHD track is certainly a nice feature as well.

I probably would have picked this title up if it had been HD DVD only. It can sit on the rack now that they are making it a combo disc. I have no intention of paying 40 bucks so that I can have a version of the movie that I will never watch. They should have made this disc with both versions in high definition only, since they are going to be releasing a DVD only release anyway.

I guess this is one of those titles I will pass on. Don't even think I would bother renting it.

I liked it in the theaters, but I wasnt overly wild about it. Looking forward to reviewing the directors cut!

I'm not a fan of combos, nor have I even seen this film yet. That said I'll definitely be getting this HD DVD if for no other reason than because my wife loves Colin Farrell. Gotta keep her happy about the new HD toys too.

Is seamless branching possible on HD-DVD?

latest info on Miami Vice from highdef digest...

Universal has also unveiled the full specs for the December 5 debut of 'Miami Vice,' which was first announced for next-gen release last week.

In addition to 1080p/VC-1 video, the HD DVD/DVD combo package will include the Unrated Director's Cut of the film on the HD DVD side only, plus a new Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround that is sure to pack a wallop.

Universal is also getting aggressive with its support for interactivity, adding its new "U-Control" feature that allows users to customize how the watch the disc's HD exclusive content. Among the HD bonus goodies on 'Miami Vice' will be the ability to access "Tech Specs" and "GPS Tracking," and if you've already played around with the studio's 'The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,' you're probably familiar with what to expect.

Very cool indeed! Posted Image
