    According to this article, Warner said they would release Blu Ray movies 5-23-06...which is probably about when the majority of hd dvd launch movies will be available from Warner.

    If this is true, then hd dvd basically lost any first to market advatage....not that I ever considered a few weeks or even months to be a big advantage.

    Ed...Warner is supposed to have 3-4 titles April 18th...so they would be first with there other initial launch titles coming some time in May as far as I know.

    If the info is confirmed in this article, it just means that the initial titles are so close that there would be no advantage for hd dvd.

    It would also mean a whole lot more Blu Ray titles at launch for Blu Ray over HD DVD.
    I have not confirmed this with any other sources yet and Warner was saying July for Blu Ray releases as far as I knew.
