I thought BD needed to release 10 titles on 50GB this year, to prove its viability. I don't believe BD will reach 10, this year. However, if entire studios are releasing in 50GB in '07, that's good enough for me, that even w/o double digit 50GB releases in '06, 50GB is indeed viable.
Still can't believe "Click", of all movies, was the 1st 50GB!?!?!?!?!?
Hard to say. They are currently up to over 155 released or scheduled for release by the end of the year, 16 - 18 not dated yet, and the EU releases not available in North America. Taken all into consideration, they have a good shot at it. But it will be close.
From the sounds of the article (that I was alerted to from the HTM main page), the Buena Vista discs will have some nice extras too.
Sounds like they're really tring to embrace the format and its possibilities. That's really what studios will have to do to give it the push it needs. Put out high quality releases, incuding the features the titles' DVDs had + new exclusives.
