I though this was reasonably well known already ?.... it's due out slightly later in the UK :
A free copy with the PS3 would be very nice. Definitely an upgrade from Talladega Nights

That will definately be a big seller, and as Topov said: A free copy of Casino Royale instead of Talladega Nights would be great! I don't expect it to happen though
Wow, that's only about three months after it's out of the theaters. Sweet. Oh, and it's h.264!
Just like you I was surprised how fast some of the movies were coming to market...
Definitely a standout return to form for the Bond franchise, and what better way to usher in the resurgence than HD? Good moves from the Sony camp, I'll be waiting on the inevitable Spidey-3 next."My strategy has to be tragedy, catastrophe, and after this you'll call me your majesty..."
This is a must-have for me. My girl is bonkers for this movie! Sony had a real breakthrough year in the box office in 2006. It looks like they are going to capitalize on that and ride the hype train right into the SpiderMan3 big kaboom!
Honestly, Sony is showing how masterful it can be with its assets, it's almost scary
The surest sign that you are on the right side of a debate is when you find yourself against those who are stuck in the past. It is they whom have no future.
Who's excited!?! Day one purchase...thats for sure...

YES, good movie and MPEG-4. Very sweet!Can't wait to get a flat panel. I just might have to splurge when GT5 comes out. I can't just not be able to play when I'm moving between work and school.
