The Euro Trend to Blu-ray Exclusivity Continues…
We read over at Blu-ray.com of three more European distributors opting to release HD only on Blu-ray Disc.
Firstly, in Sweden, both SF and Scanbox have announced that they are scrapping all plans to release films on HD DVD, and will release exclusively on the Blu-ray format. We should see the first titles from Scanbox in the April time frame.
In Spain we read that Filmax will also release exclusively on Blu-ray Disc. While no release dates have been made public, Filmax is working on titles including ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Flyboys’, and ‘Million Dollar Baby’.
With the trend in Europe towards Blu-ray, and Japan having always been firmly in the Blu-ray camp, one has to wonder if the US will be the only market where HD DVD has any hope of survival…?
