Sweet...I'm assuming PCM and/or TrueHD, and maybe even IME.

If this one sells well, the others will surely follow.

No IME on any of the HP movies. HD DVD will get IME on HP4 if the UK release is anything to go by, it has FBI warnings - which is strange considering the FBI have limited/no jurisdiction here.

HD DVD will get TrueHD on HP4 but no lossless on the rest while Blu-ray will get PCM tracks for all.
Free at last...

This is one of the big releases that I've been waiting for! I love these movies and can't wait to watch them in Blu! Order of the Phoenix and Prisoner of Azkaban are my favorites, but they'll all be great! Thanks WB!

if other HP movies will not get TrueHD on HD-DVD side, and Blu-ray will get uncompressed sound, it will swing numbers toward BD nice nice

but we need some official source to confirm specs for each movie

According to HighDef Digest:
"Due to continued lack of picture-in-picture support on Blu-ray hardware, the HD DVD will contain a trio of exclusive bonus features, including a "In-Movie Experience" video commentary featuring "the cast from Dumbledore's Army coming together to share memorable moments," the ability to "Pick Your Favorite Scenes" and assemble your favorite clips from the movie into a montage, and additional web-enabled content including downloads and other goodies to be announced."

I am somewhat pissed that Blu-ray is still behind with their specs. I am actually one who is interested in these interactive features and am getting frustrated day by day at Blu-ray especially with their lack of holiday profile 1.1 players.

How come no post on here with release date for the blu-ray? Maybe an announcement for all 5 movies?

List price will be $39.98 for the HD DVD version, and $34.98 for the Blu-ray.
But the HD DVD isn't a combo, is it?

I believe not, it costs more because of its bonus features.

I'd rather have lossless audio rather than that IME BS that the HDDUD people love so much......

Order of the Phoenix is a guaranteed combo disc. It's consistant with their pricing on all the other combos anyway

if amazon.de prices are right, it looks like us europeans aren't gonna be ripped off on this one. 150 dollars is around 110 euro, and they're selling it for 117.
