Full HD DVD Release List from HD DVD Promotion Group

HD DVD Promotion Group has made available almost the entire HD DVD titles release list (correct up to 17 May 06).

What's special about the release list as compared to many of the DVD sites including my own is that it also contains the entire list of HD DVDs released or due to be released in Japan.

So if you're eyeing the HD DVD titles released in Japan (whether Hollywood studios' films or local Japanese fare), the list may indeed be helpful in your online purchase. The list can be downloaded here (correct as on May 17). For an update-to-date list, you may have to check back the HD DVD Promotion Group main index page, the updated link is there on the frontpage.

Looking through most HD DVD related articles originating from Japanese end-users, it seems that the Japanese HD DVD releases have a mixed fare of titles encoded in VC-1 and MPEG-4 AVC with Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1, Dolby TrueHD 2.0 and/or DTS-HD 5.1.

A note about the release list: Some of the wordings are in Japanese although the release list seems clear enough in English.
