The set will feature six discs, 1080p video, and 7.1 DTS-HD MA audio, plus a host of bonus features.

I mentioned a few weeks back that Lucas had said changes were coming.

One of the things I am looking forward to is the launch of the Star Wars franchise on Blu-ray. I am really looking forward to the 1080p resolution for checking out my favorite sci-fi movies on my projector screen.

The original films also got some new content that wasn't there the first time around when I was a kid.

Pioneer BCS-717 414 313 and 212 Blu-ray Cinema Systems Make you want to Adopt

While Blu-ray has been out for quite a while now, we're still seeing businesses across the board continue to release videos on both the newest high quality medium AND the slightly older and lower quality plain ol' DVD format. Believe it or not, there are quite a few people on the planet still having yet to switch over to the Blu-ray world for more than a couple of reasons - the continued production of DVDs being one of them. What Pioneer is doing here today is making quite a grand swipe at making us want to switch over with four, count them, FOUR new 5.1 Blu-ray home cinema systems.

Sharp’s laser-growing molecule manipulator gets video demo

It may look like some monstrous espresso machine, stripped of its shiny Italian casing, but the Sharp MBE (Molecular Beam Epitaxy) actually spits out Blu-ray lasers and other carefully grown components.
