HD-DVD players to launch without titles
Yahoo! News reports that there will be a three week gap between the release of the first HD-DVD players and compatible HD movie titles. HD-DVD players will launch on March 28, but the first movies won't appear until April 18. Only three movies will be available at that time, with an additional 17 titles released "in subsequent weeks," according to Warner Home Video. In contrast, Blu-ray players will launch simultaneously with eight Blu-ray titles on May 23, with another eight titles following in June.
