Universal, which for years has been exclusively in the HD-DVD camp, is saying today it will immediately start to release new and catalog titles on Blu-ray. (See my previous today, Toshiba Surrenders In Hi-Def Format War.) Does that also mean all of Steven Spielberg’s stuff? The director has been fence-sitting — although last fall Sony did release in Blu-ray its catalogue title Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, the first of Spielberg’s pictures in either format.
