Default Re: Matrix Trilogy coming to HD DVD only on May 22!

Three things:

1. HD DVD $99 Trilogy version has all single-sided discs.

2. Blu-Ray version won't be out until November due to the mandatory switch over to the new BD spec pushed back until 10/31 (this is likely why Warner is releasing this title for HD DVD).

3. Warner stated they will only be making TotalHD discs after August. The Blu-Ray version therefore very well may be a TotalHD release, meaning it will be a flipper also.

Finally, in this case I fail to see how a double sided disc is a bad thing. The massive amount of extras could not fit on the HD side - so if it wasn't a flipper, it would be 2 seperate discs. How is changing discs easier than flipping a single disc?
We're all in it together.
