    HD-DVD update and list of titles

    Where are HD-DVD and Blu-Ray right now? Join us for a update and a
    list of more than 85 already announced titles for the next-generation
    format.

    By Henning Molbaek

    The two formats fighting for supremacy as the next-generation
    videodisc format are HD-DVD (developed by Toshiba and NEC) and Blu-Ray
    (developed by Sony). The DVD Forum supports HD-DVD, but this does not
    mean that HD-DVD has won. It all comes down to one thing--studio
    support.

    Blu-Ray has Sony-owned Columbia Tri-Star, and Sony just bought MGM.
    Recently, Disney said that it would release titles on Blu-Ray discs.
    HD-DVD is backed by Time Warner (Warner Bros. and New Line),
    Universal, and Paramount. 20th Century Fox has yet to decide but is on
    the advisory boards for both formats.

    At this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the supporters
    behind HD-DVD put action behind their words, announcing more than 85
    titles that will be released on HD-DVD before year's end, including
    "Batman Begins", "Braveheart", and the Harry Potter series. With that
    kind of line-up, it looks like HD-DVD may have taken the lead, leaving
    Blu-Ray with only titles from one other studio other than the ones
    owned by Sony and no announced movies.

    The war is by far not over yet, but the battle will hit a new high
    when products by both camps are released in stores in the United
    States.

    Here is a list of the announced HD-DVD titles. Please note that no
    word on extras or any details for that matter are available at this
    time.
