Pictures of the presentation were quickly removed from the network disappeared, apparently because the announcement was only a mistake or an unwanted advance.


So,Nothing we hadn't figured out.

I want another Lego Indiana Jones, but I don't want to buy it if all they're going to do is add on Kindgom of the Crystal Skulls. I do want to play it, but not if I have to buy a whole new game for it.

When I bought Lego Star Wars, I bought the complete one. I never bought the two games separately.

Granted...I never bought Lego Indiana Jones. I got it free with my 360.

As for the BluRay set...I don't even have a BluRay player...and I just bought the four movies recently (separate because I could buy them separately cheaper than the boxset.)

Good news for you Indy fans... our industry sources have confirmed that the planned Indiana Jones Trilogy Blu-ray release this holiday season is the real deal. Look for it in the 4th quarter, obviously from Paramount and Lucasfilm.

I still can't get behind the blu-ray format. It could be years before I embrace it. However, when and if I do, these will be among my first purchases, and the few films I will bother to double-dip for.

Same here. I'm sure I'll eventually jump onboard like everyone else, but it'll just take longer...

How cool would it be if they added a "Fate of Atlantis" lego along with the "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" to the new Indy lego game. I would like that.

Yeah, I would buy it for two or three more stories added, but not for one.

Same here. I have an HDTV and when my brother brings over his PS3 to watch a movie, I really can't tell the difference between that and one of my movies which have been upconverted. Personally, it doesn't live up to the hype.

Before you write-off Blu-ray forever, several things might be at play here (no offense intended if you've already considered these):
  • First, what Blu-ray were you watching (some have botched transfers with excessive DNR which removes detail)?
  • Are you watching in a darkened room or are there lights on which could wash out the screen and limit your perception of contrast, cause reflections or in any way interfere with properly viewing the picture?
  • How big is your HDTV (more than 42")?
  • How far are you sitting from the TV (a minimum viewing angle of 30 degrees is best* - 42" screen = 5.7 feet)?
  • Is your HDTV properly calibrated or are you using factory settings (have you tried using Digital Video Essentials' Blu-ray calibration disc)?
  • What is your HDTV's contrast ratio (more than 1000:1)?
  • What is the resolution of your HDTV (a non-standard resolution like 1366x768 or native 1080p)?
  • What resolution was the PS3 set to (same as TV)?
  • Were you using HDMI, Component, S-Video or Composite inputs (HDMI is best)?
  • Was the PS3 set to YPbPr or RGB (YPbPr is best for Blu-ray)?
* Maximum SMPTE recommended viewing distance: It results in a more immersive experience, and also lessens eye strain caused by watching a smaller image in a dark room.

The PS3 upconverts standard DVD very well and it is one of the best Blu-ray players out there, I own one and use it in conjunction with a 720p front projector. On an 8 ft. wide screen, at only 1280x720 the difference is VERY noticeable, I assure you. At that size, in a completely dark room, with proper black masking, curtains surrounding the image and proper seating, it is very similar to being in a cinema. But even on my small 32" cheap Costco off-brand 1080p LCD in my bedroom, you can see the difference. It's there, it's real and it isn't hype.

Check out any of the screenshot comparisons at AVSForum or simply check out this review of the KOTCS Blu-ray which has full-res screenshot comparisons between DVD and Blu-ray:

Hope this helps.

Original Trilogy on Blu-Ray

Does anyone know when/if the original three films will be released on Blu-Ray?

I got a Blu-Ray player last Christmas and I'm trying to build up my collection.

Amazon has it listed but it says its not available yet.

Darn, I thought you were making an announcement. Not that it really matters for me, since I don't and won't have blu-ray for a very long time to come.

Then again, some new extra features posted on YouTube would be nice...

Well if it's showing up as a pre-order item on Amazon, it may well be that it will get a pre Xmas release. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

It was rumored to be coming out this year but apparently they've pushed it back to 2010 at the earliest. If Indy V becomes a reality they may wait and find some way to tie the two releases together.

I just hope Paramount retains the film grain and give the audio a DTS-MA kick.

To Blu-ray or not to Blu-ray

Why has they're been no talk, not even a whisper about the original trilogy on Blu-ray. is there something I'm missing? They released Ghostbusters, Terminator 2, and countless other classic movies on the hd platform but not Indy or Star Wars.

Get with it Lucasfilm!

Great thread Indy Fan. I'd pretty much bet that Lucas will wait to release the original trilogy on BluRay proportionately as long as he did with his DVD releases.

I will say though, that with the right calibration and T.V., the original series looks great upscaled in 1080P! As for the report in the link.... ehhhh.. I take it with a grain of salt. I haven't seen a source or anything credible to back that announcement up (although I hope it's true).

On the other hand, here's a thought to add fuel to the fire a bit:

I've read recently that projections show thousands of 3-D ready T.V.s in homes by 2011 based on Avatar's great use of the format in theaters. Let's say that this is shared speculation by movie houses.

If that's the case, then more studios will be rushing their material out on Blu Ray while they believe the format is still viable in order to make a few bucks before gearing up to convert titles to high def 3-D.

Just food for thought.
