CES 2008 Predictions!
 
So it's the day after Christmas. Here are my big CES predictions:

No Studio changes at all. Warner won't be going Blue and nobody will be going Red.

Instead New Line, Paramount, Dreamworks, and Universal will announce a slew of HD DVD content.

The big ones:

Paramount: Beverly Hills Cop, The Godfather Trilogy, Titanic, Forrest Gump, The Indiana Jones Trilogy.
New Line: The LOTR Trilogy (on HD DVD only). The Blade Trilogy, Austin Powers.
Universal: The Back to the Future Trilogy. JAWS.
Dreamworks: The First 2 Shrek Films. Gladiator. Saving Private Ryan.

I know that includes Spielberg, but I believe that Peter Jackson has helped him change his tune a bit. The new TL discs certainly help. Paramount wants to release the trilogy around the 4th Indy film.

The announcements should be enough to make things exciting. I figure The Godfather would be pretty big.

I also think MS announces another price drop on their HD DVD addon. I put them announcing a HD DVD internal 360 at about 50/50.

It will look a lot healthier than last year's CES due to the exclusivity of titles from Paramount and Dreamworks.

Those are some nice titles. With one of my favorites, JAWS, being included. This should spice things up.

Spielberg has to approve the transfer. So we all need to cross our fingers.

If he does then don't be surprised if they announce the Jurrasic Park movies too or other Spielberg titles.

He has to approve an HD DVD first.

If there are enough players sold - he might be interested.

My understanding is that he believes that HD DVD can't offer near the same PQ & AQ to his standards.

That may have been true with 30GB discs, but with 51GB discs he may be surprised. Again it will be one of those cross your fingers things.

If he approves the transfers then we will see them. The sooner the better.

Lets hope he moves forward in the right direction. It would benefit everyone. And, the quality should not be a problem. Though, I do not know what standard of quality he feels is acceptable.
