Utter disgrace if you ask me, so much for progression.

Fox Home Entertainment has announced that they will release the Arnold Schwarzenegger classics 'Predator' and 'Commando' to Blu-ray on April 15th. Both releases will be encoded in 1080p MPEG-2 and accompanied by DTS-HD MA audio. Full extras have yet to be officially announced, but expect only the minimal.

Gonna wait for the movies to actually get released first... Fox seems to have any issue with saying mpeg 2 and it actually being something completely different for some reason.

At first I was kinda turned off as well but then I remembered that several of the blurays with the most stunning visuals is in MPEG2. Let's wait and see...

have you actually seen the final Blu-ray print of 'Predator' or 'Commando'?

Fox could have chosen MPEG-2 for a variety of reasons: cost of AVC or VC-1 licenses, for example, for certain catalogue titles may not be worth the expense; MPEG-2 streams at 25Mbit/s or great may be sufficient for old(er) films, et cetera.

Hmm, wonder why Fox always uses the MPEG2 codec? People are probably going to buy these releases anyway so what does it really matter to FOX?

Like I said... the boxes usually say Mpeg2, but it is actually avc or vc-1 (I think 99% of the time AVC).
