war.jpgNow that the Panasonic Final Standard Profile player is available, studios are announcing titles that use the new features. It appears the first will be Lionsgate, who High Def Digest reports will be releasing War on January 1st 2008. This title will also include a game, “Yakusa Fighter”.

Sony Pictures also has Picture in Picture planned for Resident Evil: Extinction, to release on January 1st or 2nd, depending on whether you believe or High Def Digest.

The Fox release of Sunshine is apparently a third Final Standard Profile title, which Fox is currently planning for January 8.

The rumors are increasingly strong that the Playstation 3 will receive firmware upgrades to enable Final Standard Profile features though the time frame for this is not clear.

In any case, the path to improved interactivity for Blu-ray Disc appears to be progressing – the question that remains perhaps is… where are the Warner titles? Weren’t they the ones who wanted to wait specifically for these features?
