Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray hits Australian retailers

Ben Gourlay | Oct 24, 2008 at 12:40 am CDT

After a slight delay from the US release, Sony have finally released the BDP-S350 Blu-ray player to the Australian market.

BDP-S350

The unit, which comes equipped with BD Live (profile 2.0) technology (BYO USB drive), is available at good retailers. However, if purchased at Sony Centre stores you will be able to pick up 5 free Blu-ray titles: Men In Black, A Knights Tale, Into The Blue, Click and Water Horse. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, if only to chuck on eBay.

Warner US Announce Dark Knight Blu-ray and DVD

Ben Gourlay | Sep 29, 2008 at 02:57 pm CDT

Warner Brothers Home Entertainment in the United States have announced, via DVDactive, The Dark Knight Blu-ray and DVD releases, featuring the best cover art I have seen in some time.

The Dark Knight

Being released just shy of Christmas '08, on December 9th, the two disc Blu-ray and DVD sets will no doubt sell like proverbial hotcakes. Whilst Warner Home Entertainment in Australia have yet to officially announce any release, it is quite telling that they have announced a re-release of the original four Batman titles (1989-1997) for release on December 17th.

We shall keep you updated.

Australian Blu-ray Releases For This Week for September 29, 2008

Ben Gourlay | Sep 29, 2008 at 01:26 am CDT

Oh yes. It's that time o' the week again! And the great part about this one, is that we have a pretty sizeable release list. Let's dive in!

Sony BMG:

Bruce Springsteen With The Sessions Band - Live In Dublin

Destiny's Child - Live In Atlanta

Incubus - Alive At Red Rocks

Universal Home Entertainment:

40 Year Old Virgin

Fogetting Sarah Marshall

Knocked Up

Heroes: Season One

Heroes: Season Two

Leatherheads

Doomsday

Reel:

Dark City

Pick of the week? I'd definitely go with Dark City. It's the directors cut of Alex Proyas' 1998 science fiction opus, with newly remastered picture and visual effects. Other than that, the groundbreaking science fiction TV show Heroes would be a wise purchase indeed.

Until next week...
