Default South Park Season 12!!!

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/South-...-Blu-ray/3434/

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Sou...eason-12/11029

The Blu-ray will have 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, and come on a 3-disc set.

It's likely it will be pillarboxed, preserving the aspect ratio.

SOUTH PARK IN HD!
PS3 CECHE01 MG (Hardware), 60GB Hard Drive

Hopes for future PS3 updates: Improved support for divx/xvid/mp4 file playback. No more "Unsupported Data" and "8002880C" & "800288BF" errors for perfectly good files-- VLC Media Player for the PS3!

As much as I love southpark, I'm not sure it's one of those things that needs to be in HD. The animation isn't that great to begin with. However, if I was going to buy season 12, I would rather buy it on BD over DVD so I guess it's a good thing

I have an Episode on my XBOX (XBOX Live Exclusive HD 720p Episode). The DVD's (and i own season on DVD) look like a pile of **** compared to this. This episode was made in 1080p in 16x9 format. It's really widescreen. They just Re-Rendered them with a 16x9 plane since it's all computer generated. I'am hoping they'll do the same for the 14 Ep of S12

Well i'am pretty sure the blu-ray set will be. It's just a question of Re-rendering them. Maybe they are already been done in 16x9. Comedy Central is not a widescreen channel nor it's HDTV.. so..

Sorry guys, season 8's "Good Times With Weapons" was redrawn for the 16x9 HD presentation. Unless they produced the 12th season with Comedy Central's HD launch next month in mind (and "center cut" it for SD broadcast), I wouldn't hold my breath for anything but a 4:3 pillar boxed presentation. But still - it should look great in HD, regardless.

If "Good Times With Weapons" is any indication, you will be pleasantly surprised with how great South Park looks in High Definition.

You haven't seen the HD version that was on hddvd and xbox live then! Looked INCREDIBLE. YES, being in HD will make a huuuge difference.
You wouldn't like me when I'm angry

SOUTH PARK IN HD!
I'd rather have the movie first, it would be 16x9 and cool

That probably will depend on how this one sells.

Looks fine on a 60" at 8 feet away.
Yes, there is banding and macorblocking here and there but SP is all about the funny and not great PQ.
I mean, look at the quality of the cartoon drawings for SP.
