I can't believe this is HD-DVD only. It's a shocking decision and shows no respect for the consumers.

I would've imported it from America right now if i could get the Blu-Ray but as it is I'll have to wait a year as i won't waste my money on a HD-DVD player.

"Shows no respect for consumers" - it shows every respect for HD-DVD owners. This is a bit like PS3 owners calling the Xbox 360-only release of Halo 3 a "shocking decision". You must have realised when you bought a Blu-Ray player that there was a competing format, and that in order for either format to suceed there needs to be exclusive content - this is born out by the success of this disc in the US where it recently became the fastest selling high definition film (on either Blu-Ray or HD-DVD). Until one format triumphs over the other this was always going to happen and indeed will continue to happen.

Strange, I could say the same for The Simpsons movie which only being released on Blu-Ray.
Like Mr O'Flanagan says, competing formats.. there are many movies bought out on one format which will never see the light of day on the other. Get over it!

which is unfortunately why ill not be purchasing either format until there is a winner. I like the simpsons movie (blu-ray) i like transformers (hd-dvd) ... guess i'll just continue to buy regular DVD's then, as will the majority of people.

just one word of caution though (bearing in mind i know very little about either format!) who remembers Sony's Betamax format competing again the VHS format..? or again, Sony's mini-disc format...? Sony has a habit of releasing technically superior products, but then charging so much for them that mass consumers go for the cheaper option. sad but true. yet another reason why i will hang back on this one.

Even if it was released on Blu Ray you would need to be careful as many discs are region coded in the same way as standard DVDs (A / B rather than 1 / 2 etc).
A friend brought a lot of Blu Ray discs back from holiday in Florida and they won't play on the UK PS3
