Both, but the Blu-ray might be delayed if the release date is Aug 1.

I thought this was supposed to be one of the first TotalHD disc.

Saw this at the theater yesterday, kickass movie.
Definately getting the HD DVD. I hope it is a regular HDDVD and not a TotalHD disc.

Watching this movie and all I could think of was how great this would look on my HT in HD.

Watched it in the theater this weekend and it was good, but not one I want to watch again. However, with the muted colors used I really don't see this one standing out in HD. Its a skip for me either way though.

Loved it loved it loved it. I will definitely buy the HD or BD (depending on audio and price, please don't make this one a combo, WB) on release date.

TotalHD is Warners brilliant idea of placing HD DVD on side and Blu-ray on the other. I'll watch 300 as soon as I find my damn free ticket for it. I've misplaced it somehow.

Note - The proper term for the produced version in question is not:

1. HD DVD or
2. HDDVD, but...

HD-DVD.

Use the dash, just as you do with Blu-Ray. (It's also a lot easier to remember.)

most people would prefer choice #1, but these are the 4 options for the HD release of 300:

1) simultaneous HD DVD and Blu-ray releases
2) HD DVD release with Blu-ray to follow at a later date due to Blu-ray's delay with interactive features
3) both HD releases delayed due to Blu-ray's delay with interactive features
4) TotalHD release with Blu-ray on one side and HD DVD on the other side

Gauthier up at the plate. The rookie came out of no where to make the squad this season. The 2-2 pitch...

Swung on, driven to DEEP left center field. Fryinpan1 back to the wall...Mr. Cinema also coming over...That ball is....

GONE! A Home Run!!!!

Wait. No! Caught! Fryinpan1 made that play look routine!

Looks like the rookie has to wait another day for that first big hit....

Can they make a TotalHD disc with a dual layer Blu-Ray side? If not, no sale. Otherwise, price would be a determining factor.

Agree on both counts. And I can't wait to see some people complaining about all the grain.
