Blu-ray News

Some good Blu-ray news, the X-Men trilogy is going to be released on the 20th of April, priced around £32.99 for the 6 disk set. Monsters Inc is also getting the Blu treatment, I have it on DVD and it's an excellent release but I've got to have it in HD.

Word has it that Panasonic are ready to launch their Blu-ray recorder into the UK market now there are at least 2 FTA HD channels on Dsat, the model DMR-BS850 may be here as early as May with a rumored price tag of £1000. Sounds a lot but the first DVD recorders were over a grand and didn't have the global enconomic issues which are hammering Japanese exports.
